SEVEN ABOMINATIONS, PART 3

Previous: Seven Abominations, Part 2

Introduction

On January 27, we continued our series on the "Seven Abominations" of Proverbs 6:16-19. In Part 1, we examined "a proud look." In Part II, we paused to set out a definition of abomination as used by Solomon in Proverbs 6, then learned about the abominations of "a lying tongue", "hands that shed innocent blood," including a discussion of abortion, and "a heart that devises wicked imaginations."
In this article, we will conclude our discussion of the Seven Abominations with a look at "feet that are swift in running to mischief," "a false witness that speaks lies," and "he that sows discord among brethren."
Feet that Are Swift in Running to Mischief
The King James Version word here, mischief, is somewhat misleading. Today, we tend to think of mischief as something considerably more benign than the Hebrew. Brown-Driver-Briggs defies the word, "Bad, evil." The King James translates the word, "evil," 442 times, "mischief," twenty-one times. The main English translations rarely translate the word, "mischief," and more rarely here in Proverbs 6:18. So, the word implies something far more serious than a trick played by a child on his little brother!
Much of what Solomon says in Proverbs 1:10-16 sounds a lot like Proverbs 6:16-19. He warns his "son" in verse 10, "If sinners entice thee, consent thou not." After listing some of the evils they would try to lure him into, he says, "My son, walk not thou in the way with them; refrain thy foot from their path. (V. 15). Why? "For their feet run to evil, and make haste to shed blood" (Prov. 1:16). The word translated, evil, in Proverbs 1:16 is the same word translated, mischief in Proverbs 6:18!
