16 There are dsix things that the Lord hates,
dseven that are an abomination to him:
and ghands that shed innocent blood,
18 ha heart that devises wicked plans,
ifeet that make haste to run to evil,
and one who asows discord among brothers.
18 The one who conceals hatred has lying lips,
and whoever utters slander is a fool.
19 Truthful lips endure forever,
but ea lying tongue is but for a moment.
jbut those who act faithfully are his delight.
20 mA man of crooked heart does not discover good,
and one with a dishonest tongue falls into calamity.
22 What is desired in a man is steadfast love,
and a poor man is better than a liar.
6 hThe getting of treasures by a lying tongue
28 A lying tongue hates its victims,
and a flattering mouth works ruin.
33 For pressing milk produces curds,
pressing the nose produces blood,
and pressing anger produces strife.
