A Scout is Trustworthy - 1st principle of Lord Robert Baden-Powell's Scout Law

The original Scout Law appeared with the publication of Scouting for Boys in 1908 and is as follows (sic, capitalization, numbering, etc by Baden-Powell):

1. A SCOUT'S HONOUR IS TO BE TRUSTED. If a scout says "On my honour it is so," that means it is so, just as if he had taken a most solemn oath. Similarly, if a scout officer says to a scout, "I trust you on your honour to do this," the Scout is bound to carry out the order to the very best of his ability, and to let nothing interfere with his doing so. If a scout were to break his honour by telling a lie, or by not carrying out an order exactly when trusted on his honour to do so, he would cease to be a scout, and must hand over his scout badge and never be allowed to wear it again---he loses his life.

Proverbs

“These six things doth the Lord hate: Yea, seven are an abomination unto him: A proud look, A lying tongue, Hands that shed innocent blood, An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, Feet that be swift in running to mischief, A false witness that speaketh lies, and He that soweth discord among brethren.” (Prov. 6:16–19.)

“Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour,” (See Ex. 20:16) The Ten Commandments.
