Proverbs 8:12-14If you don't hate evil then you don't really fear the Lord. Jesus hated evil. He drove the money changers from the temple with a whip on several occasions (Jn 2:14–16, Mt 21:12, Mk 11:15,17, Lk 19:45). Romans 12:9 says that we are to abhor that which is evil. True love has an element of hate.
I wisdom dwell with prudence, and find out knowledge of witty inventions. The fear of the LORD is to hate evil: pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way, and the froward mouth, do I hate. Counsel is mine, and sound wisdom: I am understanding; I have strength.

The ants are a people not strong, yet they prepare their meat in the summer; The conies are but a feeble folk, yet make they their houses in the rocks; The locusts have no king, yet go they forth all of them by bands; The spider taketh hold with her hands, and is in kings' palaces. There be three things which go well, yea, four are comely in going: A lion which is strongest among beasts, and turneth not away for any; A greyhound; an he goat also; and a king, against whom there is no rising up.
Give not thy strength unto women, nor thy ways to that which destroyeth kings.
She girdeth her loins with strength, and strengtheneth her arms.
Strength and honour are her clothing; and she shall rejoice in time to come.
