What are Seven things the Lord Hates and will not Tolerate?

“These seven things the LORD hates, Yes, seven are an abomination to Him:

A proud look

A lying tongue,

Hands that shed innocent blood,

A heart that devises wicked plans,

Feet that are swift in running to evil,

A false witness who speaks lies,

And one who sows discord among brethren.”

(‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭6:16-19‬ ‭NKJV‬‬)

  1. A Proud Look – An arrogant person that thinks highly of themselves or their accomplishments. A person that prefers their self will instead of God’s will.
  2. A lying tongue – A dishonest person that lies and can’t tell the truth.
  3. Hands that shed innocent blood – People that kill innocent people that have not done no wrong.
  4. A heart that devises wicked plans – A person that looks after their own interest only and not the interest of others.
  5. Feet that are swift in running to evil – People that misbehave and hurry up to do evil things. Can be evil towards something or someone.
  6. A false witness that speaks lies -Someone who speaks unjustly about another person to ruin their reputation/life.
  7. One who sows discord among brethren – Someone who intentionally divides other people: gossiping.

The first five abominations focus on parts of a person: eyes, tongue, hands, heart, and feet. These five abominations focus on the person doing the bad acts. While the last two abominations focus on the people affected by these acts.
