One of the foundations of the Mosaic law is the idea of honesty—it’s embedded in the Ten Commandments: You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.

Although the value of honesty is obvious, the fact that this concept was codified when it was is interesting.  Much of the Middle East at the time was used to corruption in their judicial systems.  Also, in a less connected world it was harder to find the truth.

That being said, just telling someone that they have to tell the truth is not going to keep them telling the truth.
