Summary: Let us look seriously at the things that God hates and get them far from us in our walk.

Wise Sayings From God

Things God Hates

Proverbs 6:16-19 (KJV)

These six things doth the Lord hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him: [17] A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, [18] An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, [19] A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.


Proverbs 8:13 (KJV)

The fear of the Lord is to hate evil: pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way, and the froward mouth, do I hate.

Proverbs 11:2 (KJV)

When pride cometh, then cometh shame: but with the lowly is wisdom.

Proverbs 13:10 (KJV)

Only by pride cometh contention: but with the well advised is wisdom.

Proverbs 14:3 (KJV)

In the mouth of the foolish is a rod of pride: but the lips of the wise shall preserve them.

Proverbs 16:18 (KJV)

Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall.

Proverbs 29:23 (KJV)

A man’s pride shall bring him low: but honour shall uphold the humble in spirit.

Pride: self-exaltation, conceit, arrogance, haughtiness, putting oneself above others, looking down upon others, scorn, contempt. It means to lift one’s head above another, to hold contempt for another, to compare oneself with others. Pride can be hidden in the heart as well as openly displayed. God resists the proud (James 4:6; 1 Peter 5:5; Proverbs 3:24).

“Be of the same mind one toward another. Mind not high things, but condescend to men of low estate. Be not wise in your own conceits” (Romans 12:16).

“And if any man think that he knoweth any thing, he knoweth nothing yet as he ought to know” (1 Cor. 8:2).

“For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world” (1 John 2:16).

“The wicked in his pride doth persecute the poor: let them be taken in the devices that they have imagined” (Psalm 10:2).

“Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the LORD, and depart from evil” (Proverbs 3:7).

“A high look, and a proud heart, and the plowing of the wicked, is sin” (Proverbs 21:4).

“Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!” (Isaiah 5:21).

Lying tongue

Psalm 109:2 (KJV)

For the mouth of the wicked and the mouth of the deceitful are opened against me: they have spoken against me with a lying tongue.

Proverbs 6:17 (KJV)

A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood,

Proverbs 12:19 (KJV)

The lip of truth shall be established for ever: but a lying tongue is but for a moment.

Proverbs 21:6 (KJV)

The getting of treasures by a lying tongue is a vanity tossed to and fro of them that seek death.

Proverbs 26:28 (KJV)

A lying tongue hateth those that are afflicted by it; and a flattering mouth worketh ruin.

Deceit: to bait, to snare, to mislead, to beguile, to be crafty and deceitful, to mislead or give a false impression by word, act, or influence. It is conniving and twisting the truth to get one’s own way. A man plots and deceives, doing whatever has to be done in order to get what he wants.

“Their throat is an open sepulchre; with their tongues they have used deceit; the poison of asps is under their lips” (Romans 3:13).

“Lie not one to another, seeing that ye have put off the old man with his deeds” (Col. 3:9).

“Thou shalt destroy them that speak leasing: the Lord will abhor the bloody and deceitful man” (Psalm 5:6).

“He that worketh deceit shall not dwell within my house: he that telleth lies shall not tarry in my sight” (Psalm 101:7).

“And they will deceive every one his neighbor, and will not speak the truth: they have taught their tongue to speak lies, and weary themselves to commit iniquity” (Jeremiah 9:5).

“The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?” (Jeremiah 17:9).

“For the rich men thereof are full of violence, and the inhabitants thereof have spoken lies, and their tongue is deceitful in their mouth” (Micah 6:12).

Hands that shed innocent blood

Matthew 19:18 He saith unto him, Which? Jesus said, Thou shalt do no murder, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness,

Christ told the young man very simply, “Keep the commandments.” The young man asked, “Which?” By asking, the man revealed an inadequate concept of God’s law. He thought some were more important than others. He wanted to know which ones would give him life.

Christ struck at the man’s real problem. The man was failing to love his neighbor as himself, so Christ quoted five of the ten commandments, five that have to do with his duty toward his neighbor (Exodus 20:12-16).
