An evil troublemaker
goes around saying twisted things with his mouth.
He winks with his eyes.
He makes signals with his feet.
He motions with his fingers.
His plans are evil, and he has lies in his heart.
He is always stirring up fights.
Trouble will catch up with him in an instant.
He will suddenly be destroyed, and nothing can save him.
There are six things the Lord hates.
In fact, he hates seven things.
The Lord hates proud eyes,
a lying tongue,
and hands that kill those who aren’t guilty.
He also hates hearts that make evil plans
and feet that are quick to do evil.
He hates any witness who pours out lies
and anyone who stirs up conflict in the community.
