Proverbs 19:9 Meaning and Commentary

Proverbs 19:9

A false witness shall not be unpunished
(See Gill on Proverbs 19:5); and [he that] speaketh lies shall perish;
or "be lost", shall be undone for ever; he shall not enter into the holy city, but have his part in the lake of fire: they that speak lies in hypocrisy, doctrinal ones, and are given up to believe and profess them, such shall be damned, ( 2 Thessalonians 2:11 2 Thessalonians 2:12 ) .

Proverbs 19:9 In-Context

7 All the brethren of the poor have hated him, Surely also his friends have been far from him, He is pursuing words -- they are not!
8 Whoso is getting heart is loving his soul, He is keeping understanding to find good.
9 A false witness is not acquitted, And whoso breatheth out lies perisheth.
10 Luxury is not comely for a fool, Much less for a servant to rule among princes.
11 The wisdom of a man hath deferred his anger, And his glory [is] to pass over transgression.
