'Malicious' in the Bible
“You must not spread a false report. Do not join the wicked to be a malicious witness.
Likewise, if anyone in hatred pushes a person or throws an object at him with malicious intent and he dies,
“But if anyone suddenly pushes a person without hostility or throws any object at him without malicious intent
“If a malicious witness testifies against someone accusing him of a crime,
“Keep an eye on Shimei son of Gera, the Benjaminite from Bahurim who is with you. He uttered malicious curses against me the day I went to Mahanaim. But he came down to meet me at the Jordan River, and I swore to him by the Lord: ‘I will never kill you with the sword.’
Malicious witnesses come forward;they question me about things I do not know.
The words of his mouth are malicious and deceptive;he has stopped acting wisely and doing good.
Even on his bed he makes malicious plans.He sets himself on a path that is not goodand does not reject evil.
The way of the Lord is a stronghold for the honorable,but destruction awaits the malicious.
A wicked person listens to malicious talk;a liar pays attention to a destructive tongue.
At that time, when you call, the Lord will answer;when you cry out, He will say, ‘Here I am.’If you get rid of the yoke among you,the finger-pointing and malicious speaking,
Wash the evil from your heart, Jerusalem,so that you will be delivered.How long will you harbormalicious thoughts within you?
This is why, if I come, I will remind him of the works he is doing, slandering us with malicious words. And he is not satisfied with that! He not only refuses to welcome the brothers himself, but he even stops those who want to do so and expels them from the church.
