with 1perverted heart 2devises evil, continually 3sowing discord;
therefore calamity will come upon him suddenly; 4in a moment he will be broken 5beyond healing.
There are 6six things that the LORD hates, 7seven that are an abomination to him:
178haughty eyes, 9a lying tongue, and 10hands that shed innocent blood,
1811a heart that devises wicked plans, 12feet that make haste to run to evil,
1913a false witness who 14breathes out lies, and one who 15sows discord among brothers.
2016My son, keep your father's commandment, 17and forsake not your mother's teaching.
2118Bind them on your heart always; 19tie them around your neck.
2220When you walk, theya will lead you; 21when you lie down, they will 22watch over you; and when you awake, they will talk with you.
For the commandment is 23a lamp and the teaching a light, and the 24reproofs of discipline are the way of life,
to preserve you from the evil woman,b from the smooth tongue of 25the adulteress.c
