Seven Things-Watch Out

Pro 6:16-19

(16) 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.

Ok, now let's examine these 6, no 7 things that God HATES!

          1. A proud look.             Pride     Look at these scriptures:     Is. 14:12-14; Gen. 3:1-6; Prov. 8:13

          2. A lying tongue                    Ex. 20:16; 1 Jn. 5:6; Jn. 14:6; Deut. 32:4

          3. Hands that shed innocent blood; Murder     

          4. A heart that devises wicked imaginations

          5. Feet that are swift in running to mischief

Pro 6:12-15

(12) A naughty person, a wicked man, walketh with a froward mouth.

(13) He winketh with his eyes, he speaketh with his feet, he teacheth with his fingers;

(14) Frowardness is in his heart, he deviseth mischief continually; he soweth discord.

(15) Therefore shall his calamity come suddenly; suddenly shall he be broken without remedy.


God's people have promises that the wicked will have their day in court, but that they will also suffer in life.

          V12: A naughty person (a wicked person) walks with a froward  (perverted) mouth.

          V13: He winks with eyes

                                                 Speaks with his feet

                                                                   Teaches with his fingers

          V14: Frowardness (perversion, wickedness) is in his heart.

                                                                                                                  Devises mischief continually

                                                                                                                                                                       Sows discord

          V15: His CALAMITY comes quickly!

                                                                          He is BROKEN without remedy. There is no cure.
