CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Lie not one to another - Do not deceive each other; speak the truth in all your dealings; do not say, "My goods are so and so," when you know them to be otherwise; do not undervalue the goods of your neighbor, when your conscience tells you that you are not speaking the truth.

Cups Running Over

You were taught, with regard to your former way of life, to put off your old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires;
Therefore each of you must put off falsehood and speak truthfully to your neighbor, for we are all members of one body.
