Things which are an abomination to the Lord. . .

I've recently done a study on things which are abominations. In the KJV, there are 8 Hebrew words and 4 Greek words translated as 'abomination' or variations of such. The word is found a total 176 times in 166 verses. The following list is from the most commonly translated Hebrew word:


Strongs: H8441
תּעבה תּועבה
tô‛êbah tô‛êbah
to-ay-baw', to-ay-baw'
Feminine active participle of H8581; properly something disgusting (morally), that is, (as noun) an abhorrence; especially idolatry or (concretely) an idol: - abominable (custom, thing), abomination.
