27 The righteous detest the dishonest; the wicked detest the upright.

Matthew Henry's Commentary on Proverbs 29:27

Commentary on Proverbs 29:27

(Read Proverbs 29:27)

The just man abhors the sins of the wicked, and shuns their company. Christ exposed the wickedness of men, yet prayed for the wicked when they were crucifying him. Hatred to sin in ourselves and others, is a needful branch of the Christian temper. But all that are unholy, have rooted hatred to godliness.
