16 The Lord hates six things; in fact, seven are detestable to Him:

and one who stirs up trouble among brothers.
6 Listen, for I speak of noble things,
and what my lips say is right.
7 For my mouth tells the truth,
and wickedness is detestable to my lips.
8 All the words of my mouth are righteous;
none of them are deceptive or perverse.
