The concept of truth in Judaism is a prized asset. So much so, that the Gemara in Shabbos 55a writes:

חוֹתָמוֹ שֶׁל הַקָּדוֹשׁ בָּרוּךְ הוּא ״אֱמֶת״

The seal of the Holy One, Blessed be He, is truth.

The Mesillas Yesharim asserts based on this chazal:

וחכמים זכרונם לברכה אמרו (שבת נה): חותמו של הקדוש ברוך הוא אמת. ובודאי שאם האמת הוא מה שבחר בו הקדוש ברוך הוא לקחתו לחותם לו, כמה יהיה הפכו מתועב לפניו.

And our sages, of blessed memory, said: "the seal of the Holy One, blessed be He, is truth" (Shab.55a). If "truth" is what the Holy One, blessed be He, selected as His seal, then undoubtedly, how great of an abomination must its opposite be to Him!
