Meditating on these four statements about what is an abomination to the Lord illumines our understanding in an important way:
Prov. 15:8 The sacrifice of the wicked is an abomination to the LORD: but the prayer of the upright is his delight.
Prov. 15:9 The way of the wicked is an abomination unto the LORD: but he loveth him that followeth after righteousness.
Prov. 15:26 The thoughts of the wicked are an abomination to the LORD: but the words of the pure are pleasant words.
Prov. 21:27 The sacrifice of the wicked is abomination: how much more, when he bringeth it with a wicked mind?
Religious activity by wicked people is an abomination to the Lord even when they do not bring it with a wicked mind!
