Best Answer

abomination = nevalah (נבלה)

Note: the word "abomination" used in English translations of Leviticus is a mistranslation of the word To'evah (תואבה), which actually means "unkosher". Unkosher means "not appropriate according to Jewish law".

Since this word didn't exist in King James' time, they used the word abomination, which is much harsher than what the Hebrew actually implies. Modern Christian translations never updated this language.)
