Proverbs 6:16-19 NIV

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