The integrity of the upright shall guide them: but the perverseness of transgressors shall destroy them.
He that walks uprightly walks surely: but he that perverts his ways shall be known.
Better is the poor that walks in his uprightness, than he that is perverse in his ways, though he be rich.
Better is the poor that walks in his integrity, than he that is perverse in his lips, and is a fool.
Lying lips are abomination to the LORD: but they that deal truly are his delight.
1 Peter 3:16
Having a good conscience; that, whereas they speak evil of you, as of evildoers, they may be ashamed that falsely accuse your good conversation in Christ.
1 Peter 2:12
Having your conversation honest among the Gentiles: that, whereas they speak against you as evildoers, they may by your good works, which they shall behold, glorify God in the day of visitation.
And whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not to men;
1 Timothy 1:5
Now the end of the commandment is charity out of a pure heart, and of a good conscience, and of faith unfeigned:
1 Thessalonians 2:4
But as we were allowed of God to be put in trust with the gospel, even so we speak; not as pleasing men, but God, which tries our hearts.
2 Corinthians 8:21
Providing for honest things, not only in the sight of the Lord, but also in the sight of men.

in-teg'-ri-ti (tom, tummah): The translation of tom, "simplicity," "soundness," "completeness," rendered also "upright," "perfection." Its original sense appears in the phrase letom (1 Kings 22:34 2 Chronicles 18:33), "A certain man drew his bow at a venture" margin "Hebrew, in his simplicity" (compare 2 Samuel 15:11, "in their simplicity"). It is translated "integrity" (Genesis 20:5, 6 1 Kings 9:4 Psalm 7:8; Psalm 25:21; Psalm 26:1, 11; 41:12:00; 78:72 Proverbs 19:1; Proverbs 20:7), in all which places it seems to carry the meaning of simplicity, or sincerity of heart and intention, truthfulness, uprightness. In the plural (tummim) it is one of the words on the breastplate of the high priest (Exodus 28:30 Deuteronomy 33:8 Ezra 2:63 Nehemiah 7:65), one of the sacred lots, indicating, perhaps, "innocence" or "integrity" Septuagint aletheia). See URIM AND THUMMIM. Another word translated "integrity" is tummah, from tamam, "to complete," "be upright," "perfect," only in Job 2:3, 1; Job 27:5; Job 31:6 Proverbs 11:3.
The word "integrity" does not occur in the New Testament, but its equivalents may be seen in "sincerity," "truth," the "pure heart," the "single eye," etc. In the above sense of simplicity of intention it is equivalent to being honest, sincere, genuine, and is fundamental to true character.
