Bible Quotes
You shall not steal; you shall not deal falsely; you shall not lie to one another.
(Leviticus 19:11) ESV

Treasures gained by wickedness do not profit, but righteousness delivers from death.
(Proverbs 10:2) ESV

Woe to those who devise wickedness and work evil on their beds! When the morning dawns, they perform it, because it is in the power of their hand. They covet fields and seize them, and houses, and take them away; they oppress a man and his house, a man and his inheritance. Therefore thus says the Lord: behold, against this family I am devising disaster, from which you cannot remove your necks, and you shall not walk haughtily, for it will be a time of disaster. In that day they shall take up a taunt song against you and moan bitterly, and say, “We are utterly ruined; he changes the portion of my people; how he removes it from me! To an apostate he allots our fields.” Therefore you will have none to cast the line by lot in the assembly of the Lord. ...
(Micah 2:1-3:12) ESV

You know the commandments: ‘Do not murder, Do not commit adultery, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Do not defraud, Honor your father and mother.’
(Mark 10:19) ESV

“One who is faithful in a very little is also faithful in much, and one who is dishonest in a very little is also dishonest in much. If then you have not been faithful in the unrighteous wealth, who will entrust to you the true riches? And if you have not been faithful in that which is another's, who will give you that which is your own? No servant can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money.”
(Luke 16:10-13) ESV

You are of your father the devil, and your will is to do your father's desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, and has nothing to do with the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks out of his own character, for he is a liar and the father of lies.
(John 8:44) ESV

Let the thief no longer steal, but rather let him labor, doing honest work with his own hands, so that he may have something to share with anyone in need.
(Ephesians 4:28) ESV

For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evils. It is through this craving that some have wandered away from the faith and pierced themselves with many pangs.
(1 Timothy 6:10) ESV

Outside are the dogs and sorcerers and the sexually immoral and murderers and idolaters, and everyone who loves and practices falsehood.
(Revelation 22:15) ESV1

Fraud and the Bible

The Bible has much to say about fraud.

The Law of Moses contained several ordinances against fraud. Deuteronomy 22:17 condemns moving a landmark, thereby obtaining extra land by fraud. Deuteronomy 25:13-16 condemns having one set of measures for selling and a separate (larger) measure for buying. Leviticus 6:2-5 says one who obtains something wrongly, including by fraud, should return it with interest before asking God's forgiveness. Leviticus 19:13 condemns defrauding a person by promising wages and then not paying them. When Jesus listed commands for the rich, young ruler (Mark 10:19) he includes "do not defraud," probably the same as "thou shalt not steal."

Psalm 10:3-11 describes the wicked, and verse 7 includes fraud as one of their characteristics. James 5:1-6 talks about oppressive rich people, and fraud is also characteristic of them.

Psalm 37:21 condemns those who borrow and don't repay the debt. Jeremiah 22:13 says one of the sins of the nation of Judah was using a neighbor's services without paying him.

1 Thessalonians 4:6 says simply not to defraud a brother in any matter.

Probably the most condemned fraud in the Bible is using false weights and measures in business. A merchant would use one set of weights in measuring goods to be sold, but a lighter set of weights for weighing the payment, thus getting more gold for less merchandise. Among the passages concerning this practice are Deuteronomy 25:13-16 (mentioned earlier); Amos 8:5; Hosea 12:7; Micah 6:10-13; and Proverbs chapter 20. Proverbs 11:1 and 20:10 are specific about what God thinks about this practice: "A false balance is abomination to the LORD: but a just weight is his delight." Fraud is one of the few things that merit the description as "an abomination."

I hope this shows that the Bible is full of condemnations of fraud. Of course, one sin is no worse than any other, but if one were to categorize sins based on the number of times the Bible talks about them, fraud would be high on the list.2
