Proverbs 6:17 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
These six - doth the Lord hate -
1. A proud look - exalted eyes; those who will not condescend to look on the rest of mankind.
2. A lying tongue - he who neither loves nor tells truth.
3. Hands that shed innocent blood, whether by murder or by battery.
4. A heart that deviseth wicked imaginations - the heart that fabricates such, lays the foundation, builds upon it, and completes the superstructure of iniquity.
5. Feet that be swift in running to mischief - he who works iniquity with greediness.
6. A false witness that speaketh lies - one who, even on his oath before a court of justice, tells any thing but the truth.
Seven are an abomination unto him - נפשו naphsho, "to his soul." The seventh is, he that soweth discord among brethren - he who troubles the peace of a family, of a village, of the state; all who, by lies and misrepresentations, strive to make men's minds evil-affected towards their brethren.

How Sowers of Strifes and Peacemakers are to be Admonished.

You save the humble but bring low those whose eyes are haughty.
Let their lying lips be silenced, for with pride and contempt they speak arrogantly against the righteous.
Whoever slanders their neighbor in secret, I will put to silence; whoever has haughty eyes and a proud heart, I will not tolerate.
Save me, LORD, from lying lips and from deceitful tongues.
for their feet rush into evil, they are swift to shed blood.
There are six things the LORD hates, seven that are detestable to him:
