Proverbs 8:13 – hating evil

August 24, 2013

13 The fear of the LORD is to hate evil; pride and arrogance and the evil way and the perverted mouth, I hate. Evil is always after me, is always tempting me.  I could give in, but I know how God feels about.  He despises evil, abhors it.  He destroys those who engage in it.  […]
