English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. holy

    Sacred is applied to that which is to be regarded as inviolable on any account, and so is not restricted to divine things; therefore in its lower applications it is less than holy. That which is sacred may be made so by institution, decree, or association; that which is holy is so by its own nature, possessing intrinsic moral purity, and, in the highest sense, absolute moral perfection. God is holy; his commands are sacred. Holy may be applied also to that which is hallowed; as, "the place whereon thou standest is holy ground," Ex. iii, 5. In such use holy is more than sacred, as if the very qualities of a spiritual or divine presence were imparted to the place or object. Divine has been used with great looseness, as applying to anything eminent or admirable, in the line either of goodness or of mere power, as to eloquence, music, etc., but there is a commendable tendency to restrict the word to its higher sense, as designating that which belongs to or is worthy of the Divine Being. Compare PERFECT; PURE.

    Synonyms:
    blessed, consecrated, devoted, divine, hallowed, sacred, saintly, set apart

    Antonyms:
    abominable, common, cursed, impure, polluted, secular, unconsecrated, unhallowed, unholy, unsanctified, wicked, worldly

How to use holy in a sentence?

  1. Clarence Cramer:

    Being filled with the Holy Spirit, then, is a matter of obedience to the Word of God. The filling of the Spirit that all experienced at Pentecost was a matter of a promise being fulfilled. Today, the believer is to be filled in obedience to the command of Ephesians 518, continuously, not merely by a single, crisis experience. The Christian life is a growth process toward maturity.

  2. Orrin Hatch:

    This is a high and holy calling. It is not something to take lightly. It is a sacred trust in which pettiness or grandstanding should have no part, in some respects, the Senate today is but a mere shadow of its former self, another casualty of the permanent political campaign.

  3. Grand Duchess Elizabeth Feodorovna of Russia:

    If we look deep into the life of every human, we discover that it is full of miracles. You will say, Of terror and death, as well. Yes, that also. But we do not clearly see why the blood of these victims must flow. There, in the heavens, they understand everything and, no doubt, have found calm and the Truer Homeland -- a heavenly Homeland. We on this earth must look to that Heavenly Homeland with understanding and say with resignation, Thy will be done. Completely destroyed now is the Great Russia without fear or reproach, but Holy Russia, the Orthodox Church, the Church against which the gates of hell shall not prevail, exists and exists as never before; and those who believe, who have no doubts, have an inner sun that illuminates the darkness of the thundering storm.

  4. Charles de LEUSSE:

    Vampire doesn’t see his image. Even less in the holy water. (Vampire ne voit son image. - Encore moins dans l'eau bénite.)

  5. Ehsan Sehgal:

    The Quran is only such a holy book, which Muslims, whether man, woman, child or elder ones, recite every second and everywhere in this universe by heart, and verbally without reading all its verses. As a fact, Quran executes not only and mainly respect for the entire humanity, it also teaches love, equality, empathy, justice, honesty, harmony, tolerance, forgiveness, and peace. However, it also describes and allows the Tit for Tat, but it defines that forgiveness is a great attitude as well. If one feels a friendly feeling, whether Muslim or non-Muslim; it understands the Quran precisely and accurately; otherwise, the collapse of mutual respect becomes inevitable. Indeed, wrong conduct and interpretation penetrate one's thought, mindset, and character, not the essence of words and the meaning of the Quran in its right and correct context and concept.
