Daily Bible Verse - 8/18/2007 - Proverbs 8:13

NIV To fear the LORD is to hate evil;
I hate pride and arrogance,
evil behavior and perverse speech.
KJV The fear of the LORD is to hate evil: pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way, and the froward mouth, do I hate.
NASB The fear of the LORD is to hate evil;
Pride and arrogance and the evil way
And the perverted mouth, I hate.
Proverbs 8:13
Wisdom hates what God hates (cf. 6:16-19; Ps. 5:5). The highest virtue is humility (submission to God), and thus wisdom hates pride and self-exaltation above all.

"The Fear of the Lord"
The phrase takes into account a lifestyle in which people take seriously an all-wise, all-powerful, and all-righteous God who holds them responsible for their behavior.
