What does the Bible say about false accusations? My favorite verse is, "Thou shalt keep them [the righteous] in a pavilion from the strife of tongues." (Psalm 31:20) In the New International Version, it reads, "...in your dwelling you keep them safe from accusing tongues." So whether you are facing false accusations at home, work, school, or out in public, stay calm. I can't tell you how many times that I have used this verse! And it has helped me greatly. It has helped me to maintain my composure, knowing the Comforter is at my side! Moses wrote in Exodus 14:14: "The LORD himself will fight for you. Just stay calm.” (this is another favorite verse of mine). Proverbs 14:29: "Whoever is patient has great understanding, but one who is quick-tempered displays folly." Paul in 2 Timothy 1:7 affirms, "For God gave us a spirit not of fear, but of power and love and self-control." In 1 Peter 3:16 Peter says, "Having a good conscience, so that when you are slandered, those who revile your good behavior in Christ may be put to shame." And in 1 Peter 2:19, he says, "For God is pleased with you when you do what you know is right and patiently endure unfair treatment."
