1 Kings 22:19-23
American Standard Version (ASV)
19 And Micaiah said, Therefore hear thou the word of Jehovah: I saw Jehovah sitting on his throne, and all the host of heaven standing by him on his right hand and on his left.

20 And Jehovah said, Who shall entice Ahab, that he may go up and fall at Ramoth-gilead? And one said on this manner; and another said on that manner.

21 And there came forth a spirit, and stood before Jehovah, and said, I will entice him.

22 And Jehovah said unto him, Wherewith? And he said, I will go forth, and will be a lying spirit in the mouth of all his prophets. And he said, Thou shalt entice him, and shalt prevail also: go forth, and do so.

23 Now therefore, behold, Jehovah hath put a lying spirit in the mouth of all these thy prophets; and Jehovah hath spoken evil concerning thee.

Yes. You will find this in many places in the Bible for example in the letter of

2 Thessalonians and the Book of Job.

Whenever God decides to deceive a wicked and willful sinner, he certainly will do so and this passage tells how it is done. It is accomplished by a lying spirit. But the spirit involved in such an assignment is doing God's will and is therefore righteous.

 

the deceived and the deceivers are his

Job 12:16
