 Perjury is the intentional act of swearing a false oath or falsifying an affirmation, to tell the truth, whether spoken or in writing, concerning matters material to an official proceeding.

Lying, or making a statement which is false, is only rarely a matter of criminality. Under some circumstances, lying in court reaches the level to where it can become a case of its own, and this is what we lawyers call perjury.

So,  lying and perjury is one of degree or extent. 

Now,

Testimony means a formal, written or spoken statement, especially one given in a court of law. Thus this also represents a degree relationship. 

Where,

Seeing and Observing are distinct activities.

Stealing is a form of taking, but it doesnt tell the extent to which something is taken.

And Dining means having dinner, which involves eating.

So, similar word-pair like LYING : PERJURY will be Statement : Testimony
