    two sentences

    все будет правда
    все будит правда

    do any of the two above sentences make any sense? are they gramatically correct ? my friend insists the 2nd one says 'all truth will be exposed' but isnt the grammatical structure wrong ??

    first is nonsensical

    second is ok (still not much sense in it), but the word order is reversed which is why you think it is wrong.

    Everything is awakened/roused by the truth.
    Правда is the subject, всё is the object.

    Obj. should prob. be animate, hence Всех будит правда.

    1. Everything will be truth
    Not much sense
    2. Truth awakens everything
    (A very awkward thing to say but grammatically correct).
    Send me a PM if you need me.

    I can guess, maybe the originally was:

    Всё будет, правда.

    Everything will be, really.

    Please, correct my mistakes, except for the cases I misspell something on purpose!
