What are the Things that God Hates?I have had people ask questions like, “How can anyone know or define what God hates?” This video answers that question, as well as:

  • What specifically does God hate?
  • Why does God hate them?
  • What are the consequences?
  • Where does the Bible say this?
  • How can we avoid doing them?

What are the things that God hates?

16 These six things the Lord hates, indeed, seven are an abomination to Him:
   
17 A proud look [the spirit that makes one overestimate himself and underestimate others], a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood,
   
18 A heart that manufactures wicked thoughts and plans, feet that are swift in running to evil,
   
19 A false witness who breathes out lies [even under oath], and he who sows discord among his brethren.

Proverbs 6:16-19 [AMP]

The Complete Jewish Bible, with commentary from Rabbi Shlomo Yitzchaki (in Latin, Salomon Isaacides, and generally known by the acronym Rashi) gives us the following:

16 There are six things that the Lord hates, and the seventh is an abomination of His soul;

טזשֶׁשׁ הֵנָּה שָׂנֵא יְהוָה וְשֶׁבַע תּוֹעֲבַות תּוֹעֲבַת נַפְשׁוֹ:

There are six things that the Lord hates, and the seventh is an abomination of His soul: The seventh, too, is [included] with them.

17 Haughty eyes, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood;

יזעֵינַיִם רָמוֹת לְשׁוֹן שָׁקֶר וְיָדַיִם שֹׁפְכוֹת דָּם נָקִי:

18 a heart that thinks thoughts of violence; feet that hasten to run to evil;

יחלֵב חֹרֵשׁ מַחְשְׁבוֹת אָוֶן רַגְלַיִם מְמַהֲרוֹת לָרוּץ לָרָעָה:

19 [one who] speaks lies with false testimony and incites quarrels among brothers.

יטיָפִיחַ כְּזָבִים עֵד שָׁקֶר וּמְשַׁלֵּחַ מְדָנִים בֵּין אַחִים:

[one who] speaks: Heb. יפיח, lit. he blows. This is an expression of speech since all speech is a product of the breath of the mouth.

Proverbs 6:16-19 [CJB]
