Proverbs 6:16-19

There

are six things which Yahweh hates; yes, seven which are an abomination to him: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood; a heart that devises wicked schemes, feet that are swift in running to mischief, a false witness who utters lies, and he who sows discord among brothers.
Proverbs 6:16-19

Context

Proverbs 6 [10.] A little sleep, a little slumber,
a little folding of the hands to sleep:
so your poverty will come as a robber,
and your scarcity as an armed man.
A worthless person, a man of iniquity,
is he who walks with a perverse mouth;
who winks with his eyes, who signals with his feet,
who motions with his fingers;
in whose heart is perverseness,
who devises evil continually,
who always sows discord.

Proverbs 6 [15.] Therefore his calamity will come suddenly.
He will be broken suddenly, and that without remedy.
There are six things which Yahweh hates;
yes, seven which are an abomination to him:
haughty eyes, a lying tongue,
hands that shed innocent blood;
a heart that devises wicked schemes,
feet that are swift in running to mischief,
a false witness who utters lies,
and he who sows discord among brothers.


Proverbs 6 [20.] My son, keep your father’s commandment,
and don’t forsake your mother’s teaching.
Bind them continually on your heart.
Tie them around your neck.
When you walk, it will lead you.
When you sleep, it will watch over you.
When you awake, it will talk with you.
For the commandment is a lamp,
and the law is light.
