A Proverb A Day Keeps Stupidity Away: VI

CHAPTER 6 VERSES 16 - 19

These six things the Lord hates. Yes, seven are an abomination to Him (NKJV)
There are 7 things he cannot stand (NCV)
No, seven things he detests (NLT)
There are 7 things that the Lord hates and can't tolerate (GNT)

  1. A proud look, 
  2. A lying tongue,
  3. Hands that shed innocent blood,
  4. A heart that devises wicked plans,
  5. Feet that are swift in running to evil,
  6. A false witness who speaks lies,
  7. A troublemaker in the family. (MSG)


Abominations that He can't stand, he won't tolerate because they detest him. these are strong words, he didn't just say "I don't like these behaviors" NO
He likened them to sex between a father and his 7 year old daughter. Abomination
He likened them to child sacrifices to get rich. Abomination.


... and yet sometimes we find ourselves on this list. Lying is second nature, and pride goes with the territory of being blessed and highly favored. And being a troublemaker, come on its extenuating circumstances and she deserved it.
But to Him. 
It's all an abomination.


PRAYER: Lord, unconsciously i exhibit some of the traits on this list. Forgive me. Open the eyes of my heart so that I might see and accept that what breaks Your heart should break mine too.

I love this verse! Its very explicit on what God detests. Taught to my Sabbath school kids about two weeks ago, and it was awesome listening to them chant it!
