Ana Sofia Ferreira I haven't read the bible, but I think they're heavily inspired by it. From what I understood, he's supposed to hate her because she's a witch and she's evil and defiles everything pure, but one of the last passages say he's supposed to protect his kin, no matter what, for leaving kin behind is the greatest sin (I honestly don't remember this correctly). As someone said already, I also think he was made to believe he was meant to hate her, but since she's his daughter he simply can't. He's conflicted, because she's everything he's learned to hate, but then the Bible also says hating her is the greatest sin he could ever commit. In a sense, he does love her, he just doesn't know how to do it.
This answer contains spoilers… (view spoiler)[I think it means that he has learned to believe to hate her, but is conflicted because she is his kin and therefore should provide for her, care for her even love her. Therefore I believe he is telling he that he hates her, but also loves her. (hide spoiler)]
