7 hateful things

There are six things which the LORD hates, Yes, seven which are an abomination to Him:

 Haughty eyes,

a lying tongue,

And hands that shed innocent blood,

A heart that devises wicked plans,

Feet that run rapidly to evil,

A false witness who utters lies,

And one who spreads strife among brothers.

[Proverbs 6:16-19]

 

In the above verses, King Solomon described a wicked man, and listed 7 things especially hateful to the LORD. Please note that the holy God hates every sin, but “there are some sins which he does in a special manner hate; and all those here mentioned are such as are injurious to our neighbour.” (quoted from Matthew Henry’s commentary). As such, let us guard against such vices, and avoid such evil practices.
