I am no preacher, but, am a prime sinner and living in this world in HIS mercy. For a sinner like me too, when I read “The Holy Bible” KJV, the following verses were given in the context of “lie” from the minor Prophets of Old Testament.

Dan 11:27 And both these kings’ hearts shall be to do mischief,
and they shall speak lies at one table;
but it shall not prosper:
for yet the end shall be at the time appointed.

Hos 2:18 And in that day will I make a covenant
for them with the beasts of the field,
and with the fowls of heaven,
and with the creeping things of the ground:
and I will break the bow and the sword
and the battle out of the earth,
and will make them to lie down safely.

Hos 7:3 They make the king glad with their wickedness,
and the princes with their lies.

Hos 7:6 For they have made ready their heart like an oven,
whiles they lie in wait:
their baker sleepeth all the night;
in the morning it burneth as a flaming fire.

Hos 7:13 Woe unto them!
for they have fled from me:
destruction unto them!
because they have transgressed against me:
though I have redeemed them,
yet they have spoken lies against me.

Hos 10:13 Ye have plowed wickedness,
ye have reaped iniquity;
ye have eaten the fruit of lies:
because thou didst trust in thy way,
in the multitude of thy mighty men.

Hos 11:12 Ephraim compasseth me about with lies,
and the house of Israel with deceit:
but Judah yet ruleth with God,
and is faithful with the saints.

Hos 12:1 Ephraim feedeth on wind,
and followeth after the east wind:
he daily increaseth lies and desolation;
and they do make a covenant with the Assyrians,
and oil is carried into Egypt.

Joe 1:13 Gird yourselves, and lament, ye priests:
howl, ye ministers of the altar:
come, lie all night in sackcloth,
ye ministers of my God:
for the meat offering and the drink offering
is withholden from the house of your God.

Amo 2:4 Thus saith the LORD; For three transgressions of Judah,
and for four, I will not turn away the punishment thereof;
because they have despised the law of the LORD,
and have not kept his commandments,
and their lies caused them to err,
after the which their fathers have walked:

Amo 6:4 That lie upon beds of ivory,
and stretch themselves upon their couches,
and eat the lambs out of the flock,
and the calves out of the midst of the stall;

Mic 1:14 Therefore shalt thou give presents to Moreshethgath:
the houses of Achzib shall be a lie to the kings of Israel.

Mic 2:11 If a man walking in the spirit and falsehood do lie, saying,
I will prophesy unto thee of wine and of strong drink;
he shall even be the prophet of this people.

Mic 6:12 For the rich men thereof are full of violence,
and the inhabitants thereof have spoken lies,
and their tongue is deceitful in their mouth.

Mic 7:2 The good man is perished out of the earth:
and there is none upright among men:
they all lie in wait for blood;
they hunt every man his brother with a net.

Nah 3:1 Woe to the bloody city!
it is all full of lies and robbery;
the prey departeth not;

Hab 2:3 For the vision is yet for an appointed time,
but at the end it shall speak, and not lie:
though it tarry, wait for it;
because it will surely come, it will not tarry.

Hab 2:18 What profiteth the graven image
that the maker thereof hath graven it;
the molten image, and a teacher of lies,
that the maker of his work trusteth therein,
to make dumb idols?

Zep 2:7 And the coast shall be for the remnant of the house of Judah;
they shall feed thereupon:
in the houses of Ashkelon
shall they lie down in the evening:
for the LORD their God shall visit them,
and turn away their captivity.

Zep 2:14 And flocks shall lie down in the midst of her,
all the beasts of the nations:
both the cormorant and the bittern
shall lodge in the upper lintels of it;
their voice shall sing in the windows;
desolation shall be in the thresholds:
for he shall uncover the cedar work.

Zep 2:15 This is the rejoicing city that dwelt carelessly,
that said in her heart,
I am, and there is none beside me:
how is she become a desolation,
a place for beasts to lie down in!
every one that passeth by her shall hiss,
and wag his hand.

Zep 3:13 The remnant of Israel shall not do iniquity,
nor speak lies;
neither shall a deceitful tongue
be found in their mouth:
for they shall feed and lie down,
and none shall make them afraid.

Hag 1:4 Is it time for you,
O ye, to dwell in your cieled houses,
and this house lie waste?

Zec 10:2 For the idols have spoken vanity,
and the diviners have seen a lie,
and have told false dreams;
they comfort in vain:
therefore they went their way as a flock,
they were troubled,
because there was no shepherd.

Zec 13:3 And it shall come to pass,
that when any shall yet prophesy,
then his father and his mother
that begat him shall say unto him,
Thou shalt not live;
for thou speakest lies in the name of the LORD:
and his father and his mother that begat him
shall thrust him through when he prophesieth.
