“For the crooked are an abomination to the LORD; But He is intimate with the upright.” (NASB)
STRONGS HEBREW/GREEK ORIGINS
“For the crooked (luwz: devious, perverse) are an abomination (tow`ebah: a disgusting thing) to the LORD; But He is intimate (cowd: secret counsel, inward) with the upright (yashar: upright, righteous, straight, just).”
The perverse and devious are disgusting in the eyes of the Lord, but He intimately dwells with the upright and just.
In a world where the acceptance of the perverse far outweighs a pursuing of righteousness, I ask you, Will you walk upright before the Lord despite all of the opposition? I personally believe that righteous living will continue to look more and more odd as time continues on. We must always keep in mind that it is the Lord we are to please and not men. And the result? God Himself will be intimately acquainted with you. How’s that for motivation?
