Proverbs 6:16-19

Sax things—Ay! Seeven, that maun be weel-gairdit

Verses 16-19.

THERE be sax things,
That the Lord 'll hae nane o':
'Deed, the're seeven,
That He abominates a'thegither:—
Vauntie een;
A leein tongue;
Hauns that herry the hairmless;
A hairt that's aye ettlin thochts o' wrang;
Feet that are stentit intil mischieff;
A dooble-mindit witness wha'll lee like onything;
An' the body wha saws bickerins amang brithers.
