They that are of a perverse heart are an abomination to the LORD, but such as are perfect in their way are his delight.
I know also, my God, that thou dost try the heart, and hast pleasure in uprightness. As for me, in the uprightness of my heart I have willingly offered all these things; and now have I seen with joy that thy people, who are present here, have given willingly unto thee.
ALEPH. Blessed are those who walk in the perfect way, who walk in the law of the LORD.
With the merciful thou wilt show thyself merciful; with a perfect man thou wilt show thyself perfect;
Behold, thou dost desire truth in the inward parts, and in the secret things thou hast made me to know wisdom.
Surely the righteous shall give thanks unto thy name; the upright shall dwell in thy presence.
These six things does the LORD hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him:
The fear of the LORD is to hate evil; pride, arrogancy, the evil way, and the perverse mouth, do I hate.
He that chastens a scorner brings shame unto himself, and he that chastens a wicked man brings himself a blot.
Lying lips are abomination to the LORD: but the workers of the truth are his delight.
Righteousness keeps the one of the perfect way: but wickedness overthrows the sinner.
The sacrifice of the wicked is an abomination to the LORD, but the prayer of the upright is his delight.
The highway of the upright is to separate himself from evil; he that keeps his way preserves his soul.
