This image of God is hard to reconcile with the world’s belief that “God is a God of love.” He is also a God of justice, righteousness, and truth, and any hatred is judicial. Divine hatred is without sin (1 John 1:5). See also Psalm 5:5
Hosea 9:15 “All their wickedness is in Gilgal, For there I hated them. Because of the evil of their deeds I will drive them from My house; I will love them no more. All their princes are rebellious.
