  • Assuming we're speaking of the King James Version: Army is correct with regard to most usages of the term. USUALLY the word "abomination" is being used in the standard sense. NOTE, however, the PRECISE wording used. For example: Lev 11:10 - And all that have not fins and scales in the seas, and in the rivers, of all that move in the waters, and of any living thing which is in the waters, they shall be an abomination unto you: *** Deu 25:16 - For all that do such things, and all that do unrighteously, are an abomination unto the Lord thy God. *** My point with those examples is that in many Bible passages, the author teaches that the matter (whatever matter is under discussion) is or MUST BE an abomination for a particular being or people. *** BUT "abomination" is NOT always used in the standard sense. For example: in many Bible passages it's used as a euphemism referring to a false deity. For two examples: Deu 7:25-26 - The graven images of their gods shall ye burn with fire: thou shalt not desire the silver or gold that is on them, nor take it unto thee, lest thou be snared therein: for it is an abomination to the Lord thy God. Neither shalt thou bring an abomination into thine house, lest thou be a cursed thing like it: but thou shalt utterly detest it, and thou shalt utterly abhor it; for it is a cursed thing. * 1Ki 11:5 - For Solomon went after Ashtoreth the goddess of the Zidonians, and after Milcom the abomination of the Ammonites. ***** One of the basic "rules of thumb" with regard to Bible interpretation (or, indeed, the interpretation of ANY document) is relevant here. "If the immediate textual context does not indicate otherwise, the word almost always is intended by the author to have one or more of its standard (i.e. dictionary) meanings."

  • Based on Scripture, abomination means ungodly behavior. Proverbs 17:15 "He who justifies the wicked and he who condemns the righteous, Both of them alike are an abomination to the LORD."

  • What does “abomination” mean? Holman Bible Dictionary describes the meaning of this word by looking at how it’s used in scripture. It describes anything that God finds detestable, especially idolatry (worshiping false gods). It is translated from a number of Hebrew and Greek words, several of which mean “to stink” (e.g., Exodus 7:18). An abomination is something that God detests and finds rotten and vile. Hated by God. 11/16/22
