The Malicious Man

What the Lord Hates

16 Six things the Lord hates; in fact, seven are detestable to Him: 17 arrogant eyes,g a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood,h 18 a heart that plots wicked schemes, feet eager to run to evil, 19 a lying witness who gives false testimony,i and one who stirs up trouble among brothers.j
