Hate evil, love good; maintain justice in the courts:Amos 5:15
To fear the LORD is to hate evil; I hate pride and arrogance, evil
behavior and perverse speech. Proverbs 8:13
Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good. Be
devoted to one another in brotherly love. Honor one another above
yourselves. Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor,
serving the Lord. Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in
prayer. Share with God's people who are in need. Practice hospitality.

what is good.

bear the burden with thee.

be a cursed thing like it: but thou shalt utterly detest it, and thou
shalt utterly abhor it; for it is a cursed thing.
