Deep and emotional dislike

Hatred or hate is deep and emotional dislike directed toward a person, thing, or idea. It is discussed extensively in the Bible, particularly in the teachings of Jesus:

Matthew 5:43–44
"You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you"

Luke 6:22
Blessed are you when people hate you and when they exclude you and revile you and spurn your name as evil, on account of the Son of Man!
