Halacha - Lying
Submitted by BatMordecai  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Answer: There are some isolated situations where lying is permitted, such as Rashi points out in Parshas Vayeira that Hashem told Avraham that Sarah said "she" was old when in fact she said that Avraham was old. The details of this Halacha are beyond the scope of this site, but an excellent work on this topic is "Priceless Integrity" written by Rabbi Daniel Travis and printed by Targum Press.
