Proverbs 6:16-19 KJVR These six things doth the LORD hate [H8130]: yea, seven are an abomination [H8441] unto him: (17) A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, (18) A 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.
This second greatest commandment is found only once (am I wrong?) in the Old Testament at Leviticus 19:18. There is much for us to hear in the 3 verses preceding verse 18:
- a haughty look
- a lying tongue
- hands that shed innocent blood
- a heart that plots wicked schemes
- feet swift in running to do evil
- a false witness who lies with every breath
- him who sows strife among brothers
2Timothy 2:23-26 KJVR But foolish and unlearned questions avoid, knowing that they do engender strifes. (24) And the servant of the Lord must not strive; but be gentle unto all men, apt to teach, patient, (25) In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth; (26) And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will.
