God hates

Do you ever read verses in the Bible which scare you into obedience? Reading Proverbs 6:16-19 I felt the power of God in his word – God hates these things, that is strong language. The Message phrases verse 16 like this; Here are six things God hates, and one more that he loathes with a passion – what does that say about our gossip and slander? However, I posted the NIV text here because of the way it translates verse 19,  the ESV has, and one who sows discord among brothers)

There are six things the LORD hates,
seven that are detestable to him:
haughty eyes,
a lying tongue,
hands that shed innocent blood,
a heart that devises wicked schemes,
feet that are quick to rush into evil,
a false witness who pours out lies
and a person who stirs up conflict in the community.
