 O ye who believe! If a wicked person comes to you with any news, ascertain the truth, lest ye harm people unwittingly, and afterwards become full of repentance for what ye have done

All tittle-tattle or reports-especially if emanating
from persons you do not know-are to be tested, and the
truth ascertained. If they were believed and passed on,
much harm may be done, of which you may have cause
afterwards to repent heartily. Scandal or slander of all
kinds is here condemned.
That about women is specially denounced: 24: 11-20;
23-26
