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.

Proverbs 6:16-19 Amplified 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.
