(16) There are six things that Jehovah does hate; yes, seven are things detestable to his soul: (17) lofty eyes, a false tongue, and hands that are shedding innocent blood, (18) a heart fabricating hurtful schemes, feet that are in a hurry to run to badness, (19) a false witness that launches forth lies, and anyone sending forth contentions among brothers.
(21) Do I not hate those who are intensely hating you, O Jehovah, And do I not feel a loathing for those revolting against you? (22) With a complete hatred I do hate them. They have become to me real enemies.
O you lovers of Jehovah, hate what is bad. He is guarding the souls of his loyal ones; Out of the hand of the wicked ones he delivers them.
