There are certain kinds of people or behaviors that ticks God off. Those who are too proud or tell lies or murder, those who make evil plans or are quick to do wrong,  those who tell lies in court or stir up trouble in a family. (Proverbs 6:16-19).  
 The First Three are those who are too proud or tell lies or murder. (Proverbs 6:17)  
A proud look: eyes that are scornful and look down upon others; or looking upon them with disdain; or reckoning them as unworthy to be looked upon, having an high opinion of their own worth and merit.
a lying tongue: that is the second of the hateful things; a tongue speaking falsehood, knowingly and willingly, with an intention to deceive others; to hurt the character of a neighbor, or to flatter a friend, nor is there anything in which a man more resembles the devil, who is the father of lies;
and hands that shed innocent blood: the killing innocent persons, they are destroying beings made in God's image, and being like to the devil, who was a murderer from the beginning.

The next two are those who make evil plans or are quick to do wrong. (Proverbs 6:18)  
A heart that devises wicked imaginations: "thoughts of wickedness"  which are framed and formed in the heart: and this being the source and fountain of all wickedness, evil thoughts and designs, both against God and men, are intended, which are forged and fabricated in the wicked hearts of men and women.
The final two are those who tell lies in court or stir up trouble in a family. (Proverbs 6:19)  
A false witness that speaks lies: "that speaks lies, even a false witness", and so this is distinguished from a lying tongue, the second of these evils: this is the sin of bearing false witness against one's neighbor, a breach of the eighth command. It may be rendered, "he that that raises lies, and spreads them abroad, and swears to them, to the damage of others. This makes the sixth; and the seventh follows,
and him that sows discord among brethren; whether in a natural relation, or in a civil society, or in a religious community.
