Proverbs 6:16-19 English Standard Version (ESV)

16 There are six things that the Lord hates,
    seven that are an abomination to him:
17 haughty eyes, a lying tongue,
    and hands that shed innocent blood,
18 a heart that devises wicked plans,
    feet that make haste to run to evil,
19 a false witness who breathes out lies,
    and one who sows discord among brothers.

16 There are six things which Jehovah hateth;
Yea, seven which are an abomination [a]unto him:

And hands that shed innocent blood;

And he that [c]soweth discord among brethren.
