He was so pleased by their praise at the way that he so cleverly snuck into the camp without being seen, that he decided to keep the Ring out of it for a while.

Why does Bilbo not tell the dwarves about his ring?

In The Hobbit, it is presented as simply a matter of Bilbo's pride. The dwarves are are finally beginning to be impressed with Bilbo as burglar and he does not want to admit that a large part of his success is due to an magical artifact and has nothing to do with his talents. In the Lord of the Rings, the reasoning appears to be more sinister. He wants to keep the ring a secret so that his possession of it will not be threatened, so that he can keep his hold on the Ring. There is an implication that this is due to corrupting force of the One Ring immediately seizing upon Bilbo, making him develop a fixation and obsession with the ring, and inspires him to lie to make sure he can retain the ring.


Why doesnt Bilbo tell the dwarves about his ring do you consider this lying?

Oh of course its lying, its the first sign that the ring is taking control of its new bearer. Hobbits just don't normally know how to lie.


Why doesnt Bilbo tell the dwarves about his ring?

He is scared to, the ring influences him to "protect his precious" and he likes the way prestige he gets for being so "sneaky" and "burglar like" because of using it. Therefore, if he revealed the ring, they would not be so impressed by Bilbo since the ring makes him invisible and helps him hide.


Why doesn't Bilbo tell Gandalf and the dwarves about the magic ring?

There were two editions of The Hobbit that were written. Prior to the Lord of the Rings, the ring itself had no history, and so Bilbo actually did reveal that he obtained the ring from Gollum. Later, when the Ring's malevolent history was dabbled into, Tolkein realized Gollum would never give up the ring willingly, and re-wrote the chapter in later editions to reflect that Bilbo more or less stole the ring. Canonically, Bilbo told Gandalf and the Dwarves that it was a prize for winning the riddle game. Gandalf had his suspicions, however, and managed to get the true story from Bilbo much later. The fact that Bilbo would lie about the entire incident struck Gandalf as alarming, since Hobbits weren't prone to such things as lying. One might say that the reason Bilbo lied was due to the effect that the Ring was having on him.
