Seven things that God hates. Proverbs 6.16-19

But first, here’s a quick definition of an adjective found in the verses that lead up to the list of seven things that God hates. “Froward:” perverse, contrary, self-willed.


12. “A naughty person, a wicked man, walketh with a froward mouth.

1313. He winketh with his eyes, he speaketh with his feet, he teacheth with his fingers;

1414. Frowardness is in his heart, he deviseth mischief continually; he soweth discord.

1515. Therefore shall his calamity come suddenly; suddenly shall he be broken without remedy.

1616. These six things doth the LORD hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him:

1717. A proud look,  

a lying tongue, 

and 

hands that shed innocent blood,

1818. An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations

feet that be swift in running to mischief,

1919. A false witness that speaketh lies

and 

he that soweth discord among brethren.

  1. Lee, thanks for the reminder — I guess. I have for some time been bothered by the “he that soweth discord among brethren.“ I tend to jump in and speak my mind when I feel that someone is avoiding Scriptural truth. I sometimes see that approach result in discord. Sometimes I’m not sure that discord can be avoided specifically when brothers don’t agree on what is truth vs what is a lie. So which is it better to do? Avoid discord at all cost or speak the truth knowing that discord may be the end result?

    1. I’ve run into that dilemma myself my friend. And (in my case) I was an arrogant know-it-all, and a blight on His image in the body.
      It’s good to stick up for what’s right, but it has to be done correctly.
      So now I’m more inclined to try to treat people like I’d want to be treated, and to promptly ask people to forgive me where I’ve needlessly caused strife.
      Another thing God is teaching me is to disengage from debate. That alone eliminates most of the problem.
      Thank you Jerry for your thoughtful comment brother.
