Proverbs 6:16-19New King James Version (NKJV)

16 These six things the Lord hates,
Yes, seven are an abomination to Him:
17 A proud look,
A lying tongue,
Hands that shed innocent blood,
18 A heart that devises wicked plans,
Feet that are swift in running to evil,
19 A false witness who speaks lies,
And one who sows discord among brethren.

And one who [b]spreads strife among brothers.

Proverbs 6:16-19Amplified Bible (AMP)

16 
These six things the Lord hates;
Indeed, seven are repulsive to Him:
17 
A proud look [the attitude that makes one overestimate oneself and discount others], a lying tongue,
And hands that shed innocent blood,
18 
A heart that creates wicked plans,
Feet that run swiftly to evil,
19 
A false witness who breathes out lies [even half-truths],
And one who spreads discord (rumors) among brothers.
