Proverbs 6: 16-19

16 Six things there are, which the Lord hateth, and the seventh his soul detesteth:

17 Haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood,

18 A heart that deviseth wicked plots, feet that are swift to run into mischief,

19 A deceitful witness that uttereth lies, and him that soweth discord among brethren.

Douay Rheims Version

There are those of us, who will see others in each of these above descriptions.  But how many of us see ourselves in the second half of the last verse

Discuss amongst yourselves.


Please note, this I thought to post because of my husband's post here, and the Fr. Z(ed) posts to which he links.  But I realise that, as bloggers, I need to heed this as well. 

Ranter has a good verse too

Do not return insult with insult. - hmmmmm

Ok--there you go again! Sometimes Puff you say things that strike me like a lead pipe, and I have to look at me and cringe.

Thank you very much--I need it.

it blew my mind when I read it too.

That's how I knew I needed to post it.

I think mine is the flipside to yours...I see your verse as "Don't do this" and mine as "Do this." Good stuff, for sure, and words to heed.

Scripture to keep in mind

Six things there are, which the Lord hateth, and the seventh his soul detesteth: [17] Haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, [18] A heart that deviseth wicked plots, feet that are swift to run into mischief, [19]A deceitful witness that uttereth lies, and him that soweth discord among brethren. [20] My son, keep the commandments of thy father, and forsake not the law of thy mother. ***Cf:Douay-Rheims Proverbs 6: 16-20
