Proverbs 24:12

If you say, “Behold, we did not know this,”

    does not he who weighs the heart perceive it?

Does not he who keeps watch over your soul know it,

    and will he not repay man according to his work?

Proverbs 24:12 ESV

This is an admonition to tell the truth and a warning for not doing so. While we may be able to deceive other people, this proverb warns us by way of two questions, that the Lord knows. When we practice deception, we are saying one of two things: God doesn’t see us OR God doesn’t care. Neither is true.
