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.
17 mBetter is a dry morsel with quiet
than a house full of feasting1 with strife.
18 rThe lot puts an end to quarrels
and decides between powerful contenders.
19 A brother offended is more unyielding than a strong city,
and quarreling is like the bars of a castle.
