Weekly Catechism - Lord's Day 43

Weekly Catechism for 2018 (Heidelberg 1563): LORD’S DAY 43

112. What is required in the ninth commandment? 
That I bear false witness against no one; wrest no one’s words; be no backbiter, or slanderer; join in condemning no one unheard and rashly; but that I avoid, on pain of God’s heavy wrath, all lying and deceit, as being the proper works of the devil; in matters of judgment and justice and in all other affairs love, honestly speak and confess the truth; and, so far as I can, defend and promote my neighbor’s good name.
