Bible Term: Abomination

In general, an abomination is something abhorrent or disgusting; things that are a cause for abhorrence or disgust.

Some translations of the Bible use this word often (such as the Amplified version), whereas others use it seldom or not at all.

It is used in several contexts, such as things that are unholy and an affront to God, various forms of moral depravity, or sins in general.

A list of “abominations” (or detestable things) is given in Proverbs 6:16-19: a proud look, lying, murder, planning evil, running towards evil, a false witness, and stirring up trouble.
