English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. wickedness

    Abomination (from the Latin ab omen, a thing of ill omen) was originally applied to anything held in religious or ceremonial aversion or abhorrence; as, "The things which are highly esteemed among men are abomination in the sight of God." Luke xvi, 15. The word is oftener applied to the object of such aversion or abhorrence than to the state of mind that so regards it; in common use abomination signifies something very much disliked or loathed, or that deserves to be. Choice food may be an object of aversion and disgust to a sick person; vile food would be an abomination. A toad is to many an object of disgust; a foul sewer is an abomination. As applied to crimes, abomination is used of such as are especially brutal, shameful, or revolting; theft is an offense; infanticide is an abomination.

    Synonyms:
    abhorrence, abomination, abuse, annoyance, aversion, crime, curse, detestation, disgust, evil, execration, hatred, horror, iniquity, nuisance, offense, plague, shame, villainy

    Antonyms:
    affection, appreciation, approval, benefit, blessing, delight, desire, enjoyment, esteem, esteem, gratification, joy, satisfaction, treat

How to use wickedness in a sentence?

  1. Joesph Conrad, "Carnival of Wit":

    The belief in a supernatural source of evil is not necessary; men alone are quite capable of every wickedness.

  2. Thomas Paine:

    Whenever we read the obscene stories, voluptuous debaucheries, the cruel and tortous executions, the unrelenting vindictivenes, with which more than half the Bible is filled, it would be more consistant that we called it the word of a Demon than the word of God. It is a history of wickedness that has served to corrupt and brutalize mankind, and, for my part, I sincerly detest it as I detest everything that is cruel.

  3. Marquis de Sade:

    For mortal men there is but one hell, and that is the folly and wickedness and spite of his fellows; but once his life is over, there's an end to it: his annihilation is final and entire, of him nothing survives.

  4. John Milton:

    ... If weakness may excuse, What Murderer, what Traitor, Parricide, Incestuous, sacrilegious, but may plead it All Wickedness is Weakness That plea therefore With God or Man will gain thee no Remission.

  5. RAS CARDO REGGAE:

    one thing about this pandemic is sure-it has brought the hidden injustices and inequities in a racially flawed system in america of the abject conditions of the poor to the rich man's door. America cannot hide from it's hate and racially motivated wickedness against black people. Black people in america must now-wise up- and seek their own destiny. Sufferings has been -much too long!
