[tlhIngan Hol] expressing "honest" {yuD} {yuDHa'} {yuDbe'} understanding the {-Ha'}

We've been given:

{yuD} (v) be dishonest
{yuDHa'} (v) be honest

But somehow, if I want to say "you're honest" and I write {SuyuDHa'}, then
this gives me the impression that sometime in the past you were dishonest,
and that now you're honest.

If I want to say "you're honest", believing that you've always been honest,
shouldn't I write instead {SuyuDbe'}?
