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