Abominations unto GOD


Hosea 4:6

King James Version

6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: 

because thou hast rejected knowledge, 

I will also reject thee, 

that thou shalt be no priest to me: 

seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, 

I will also forget thy children.

How have we grieved God?

How have we transgressed from His law?

Scripture speaks of the many ways.

Exodus 20:1-5

King James Version

20 And God spake all these words, 


2 I am the Lord thy God, 

which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, 

out of the house of bondage.

3 Thou shalt have no other gods before me.

4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, 

or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, 

or that is in the earth beneath, 

or that is in the water under the earth.

5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, 

nor serve them: 

for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, 

visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children 

unto the third and fourth generation 

of them that hate me;

Leviticus 19:26

King James Version

26 Ye shall not eat any thing with the blood: 

neither shall ye use enchantment, 

nor observe times.

Leviticus 19:28

King James Version

28 Ye shall not make any cuttings in your flesh 

for the dead, 

nor print any marks upon you: 

I am the Lord.

Leviticus 19:29

King James Version

29 Do not prostitute thy daughter, 

to cause her to be a whore; 

lest the land fall to whoredom, 

and the land become full of wickedness.

Leviticus 19:31

King James Version

31 Regard not them that have familiar spirits, 

neither seek after wizards, 

to be defiled by them: 

I am the Lord your God.

Leviticus 26:1

King James Version

26 Ye shall make you no idols nor graven image, 

neither rear you up a standing image, 

neither shall ye set up any image of stone 

in your land, 

to bow down unto it: 

for I am the Lord your God.

Deuteronomy 18:9-14

King James Version

9 When thou art come into the land 

which the Lord thy God giveth thee, 

thou shalt not learn to do 

after the abominations of those nations.

10 There shall not be found among you any one 

that maketh his son or his daughter 

to pass through the fire, 

or that useth divination, 

or an observer of times, 

or an enchanter, 

or a witch.

11 Or a charmer, 

or a consulter with familiar spirits, 

or a wizard, 

or a necromancer.

12 For all that do these things 

are an abomination unto the Lord: 

and because of these abominations 

the Lord thy God doth drive them out 

from before thee.

13 Thou shalt be perfect with the Lord thy God.

14 For these nations, 

which thou shalt possess, 

hearkened unto observers of times, 

and unto diviners: 

but as for thee, 

the Lord thy God hath not suffered thee so to do.

1 Samuel 15:23

King James Version

23 For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, 

and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry

Because thou hast rejected the word of the Lord, 

he hath also rejected thee from being king.

2 Kings 23:4-20

King James Version

4 And the king commanded Hilkiah the high priest, 

and the priests of the second order, 

and the keepers of the door, 

to bring forth out of the temple of the Lord 

all the vessels that were made for Baal, 

and for the grove, 

and for all the host of heaven: 

and he burned them without Jerusalem 

in the fields of Kidron, 

and carried the ashes of them unto Bethel.

5 And he put down the idolatrous priests, 

whom the kings of Judah had ordained to burn incense 

in the high places in the cities of Judah, 

and in the places round about Jerusalem; 

them also that burned incense unto Baal, 

to the sun, 

and to the moon, 

and to the planets, 

and to all the host of heaven.

6 And he brought out the grove 

from the house of the Lord, 

without Jerusalem, 

unto the brook Kidron, 

and burned it at the brook Kidron, 

and stamped it small to powder, 

and cast the powder thereof 

upon the graves of the children of the people.

7 And he brake down the houses of the sodomites, 

that were by the house of the Lord, 

where the women wove hangings for the grove.

8 And he brought all the priests 

out of the cities of Judah, 

and defiled the high places 

where the priests had burned incense, 

from Geba to Beersheba, 

and brake down the high places of the gates 

that were in the entering in 

of the gate of Joshua 

the governor of the city

which were on a man's left hand at the gate of the city.

9 Nevertheless the priests of the high places 

came not up to the altar of the Lord in Jerusalem, 

but they did eat of the unleavened bread 

among their brethren.

10 And he defiled Topheth, 

which is in the valley of the children of Hinnom, 

that no man might make his son or his daughter 

to pass through the fire to Molech.

11 And he took away the horses 

that the kings of Judah had given to the sun, 

at the entering in of the house of the Lord, 

by the chamber of Nathanmelech the chamberlain, 

which was in the suburbs, 

and burned the chariots of the sun with fire.

12 And the altars 

that were on the top of the upper chamber of Ahaz, 

which the kings of Judah had made, 

and the altars which Manasseh had made 

in the two courts of the house of the Lord, 

did the king beat down, 

and brake them down from thence, 

and cast the dust of them into the brook Kidron.

13 And the high places that were before Jerusalem, 

which were on the right hand 

of the mount of corruption, 

which Solomon the king of Israel 

had builded for Ashtoreth 

the abomination of the Zidonians, 

and for Chemosh 

the abomination of the Moabites, 

and for Milcom 

the abomination of the children of Ammon, 

did the king defile.

14 And he brake in pieces the images, 

and cut down the groves, 

and filled their places with the bones of men.

15 Moreover the altar that was at Bethel, 

and the high place 

which Jeroboam the son of Nebat, 

who made Israel to sin, 

had made, 

both that altar and the high place he brake down, 

and burned the high place, 

and stamped it small to powder, 

and burned the grove.

16 And as Josiah turned himself, 

he spied the sepulchres 

that were there in the mount, 

and sent, 

and took the bones out of the sepulchres, 

and burned them upon the altar, 

and polluted it, 

according to the word of the Lord 

which the man of God proclaimed

who proclaimed these words.

17 Then he said, 

What title is that that I see? 

And the men of the city told him, 

It is the sepulchre of the man of God, 

which came from Judah, 

and proclaimed these things 

that thou hast done 

against the altar of Bethel.

18 And he said, 

Let him alone; 

let no man move his bones

So they let his bones alone, 

with the bones of the prophet that came out of Samaria.

19 And all the houses 

also of the high places 

that were in the cities of Samaria, 

which the kings of Israel had made 

to provoke the Lord to anger, 

Josiah took away, 

and did to them according to all the acts 

that he had done in Bethel.

20 And he slew all the priests of the high places 

that were there upon the altars, 

and burned men's bones upon them

and returned to Jerusalem.

Jeremiah 10:2-5

King James Version

2 Thus saith the Lord, 

Learn not the way of the heathen, 

and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; 

for the heathen are dismayed at them.

3 For the customs of the people are vain

for one cutteth a tree out of the forest, 

the work of the hands of the workman, 

with the axe.

4 They deck it with silver and with gold

they fasten it with nails and with hammers, 

that it move not.

5 They are upright as the palm tree, 

but speak not: 

they must needs be borne, 

because they cannot go

Be not afraid of them; 

for they cannot do evil, 

neither also is it in them to do good.

Ezekiel 13:18-23

King James Version

18 And say, 

Thus saith the Lord God; 

Woe to the women that sew pillows to all armholes, 

and make kerchiefs 

upon the head of every stature to hunt souls! 

Will ye hunt the souls of my people, 

and will ye save the souls alive that come unto you?

19 And will ye pollute me among my people 

for handfuls of barley and for pieces of bread, 

to slay the souls that should not die, 

and to save the souls alive that should not live, 

by your lying to my people that hear your lies?

20 Wherefore thus saith the Lord God; 


I am against your pillows, 

wherewith ye there hunt the souls to make them fly, 

and I will tear them from your arms, 

and will let the souls go, 

even the souls that ye hunt to make them fly.

21 Your kerchiefs also will I tear,

and deliver my people out of your hand, 

and they shall be no more in your hand to be hunted; 

and ye shall know that I am the Lord.

22 Because with lies 

ye have made the heart of the righteous sad, 

whom I have not made sad; 

and strengthened the hands of the wicked, 

that he should not return from his wicked way, 

by promising him life:

23 Therefore ye shall see no more vanity, 

nor divine divinations: 

for I will deliver my people out of your hand:

 and ye shall know that I am the Lord.

Acts 8:9-13

King James Version

9 But there was a certain man, 

called Simon, 

which beforetime in the same city used sorcery, 

and bewitched the people of Samaria,

giving out that himself was some great one:

10 To whom they all gave heed, 

from the least to the greatest, saying, 

This man is the great power of God.

11 And to him they had regard, 

because that of long time 

he had bewitched them with sorceries.

12 But when they believed Philip preaching the things 

concerning the kingdom of God, 

and the name of Jesus Christ, 

they were baptized, 

both men and women.

13 Then Simon himself believed also: 

and when he was baptized, 

he continued with Philip, 

and wondered, 

beholding the miracles and signs 

which were done.

Romans 1:25

King James Version

25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, 

and worshipped and served the creature 

more than the Creator, 

who is blessed for ever. 


1 Corinthians 6:9-10

King James Version

9 Know ye not that the unrighteous 

shall not inherit the kingdom of God

Be not deceived: 

neither fornicators, 

nor idolaters, 

nor adulterers, 

nor effeminate, 

nor abusers of themselves with mankind,

10 Nor thieves, 

nor covetous, 

nor drunkards, 

nor revilers, 

nor extortioners, 

shall inherit the kingdom of God.

2 Peter 2:14-15

King James Version

14 Having eyes full of adultery, 

and that cannot cease from sin; 

beguiling unstable souls: 

an heart they have exercised with covetous practices; 

cursed children:

15 Which have forsaken the right way, 

and are gone astray, 

following the way of Balaam the son of Bosor, 

who loved the wages of unrighteousness;

Revelation 21:7-8

King James Version

7 He that overcometh shall inherit all things; 

and I will be his God, 

and he shall be my son.

8 But the fearful, 

and unbelieving, 

and the abominable, 

and murderers, 

and whoremongers, 

and sorcerers, 

and idolaters, 

and all liars, 

shall have their part in the lake 

which burneth with fire and brimstone: 

which is the second death.
