I'm speaking of the actual Hebrew words (see here for example). Not to mention, perjury is lying either way.

Thank you for the link.

It does not however make me disagree with the translation used by the author; namely the King James translation of the commandment against bearing false witness. Don’t get me wrong there are plenty of problems in the King James.

Yes perjury is lying however it is lying in court when one has spoken an oath (to god) that what one says is to the best of one’s knowledge the truth.

It is an important difference.
