The Bible records Solomon as having stated that God hates six things and seven are detestable to him.

Therefore, God hates six things however, detest seven of them. Solomon list seven things.  

  • Haughty eyes

Haughty refers to someone who is disobedient, bad or a rascal or poorly behaved.

The word haughty comes from an old Anglo-French word, haut, which means “high,” and which comes from the Latin word altus, from which we get our word altitude. Putting all that together, we find that haughty eyes are the kind of eyes that look down at other people, as if the one looking down is “higher up” than others.

  • A lying tongue

Therefore, rid yourselves of all malice and all deceit

  • Hands that shed innocent blood

Anyone who hates his brother is a murderer, and you know that no murderer has eternal life in him. | 1 John 3:15

  • A heart that devises wicked schemes
  • Feet that are quick to rush into evil
  • A false witness who pours out lies
  • A person who stirs up conflict in the community

We should, therefore, try to avoid the listed things that God hates.

If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace everyone.

May peace be with you all
