MALICE, MALIGNITY

mal'-is, ma-lig'-ni-ti (kakia, poneros, kakoetheia): "Malice," now used in the sense of deliberate ill-will, by its derivation means badness, or wickedness generally, and was so used in Older English. In the Apocrypha it is the translation of kakia, "evil," "badness" (The Wisdom of Solomon 12:10, 20; 16:14; 2 Maccabees 4:50, the Revised Version (British and American) "wickedness"); in Ecclesiasticus 27:30; 28:7, we have "malice" in the more restricted sense as the translation of menis, "confirmed anger." In the New Testament "malice" and "maliciousness" are the translation of kakia (Romans 1:29 1 Corinthians 5:8; 1 Corinthians 14:20 Colossians 3:8); malicious is the translation of poneros, "evil" (3 John 1:10, the Revised Version (British and American) "wicked"); it also occurs in Additions to Esther 13:4, 7, verse 4, "malignant"; The Wisdom of Solomon 1:4, the Revised Version (British and American) that deviseth evil"; 2 Maccabees 5:23; malignity occurs in Romans 1:29 as the translation of kakoetheia, "evil disposition"; "maliciously," Susanna verses 43, 62; 2 Maccabees 14:11, the Revised Version (British and American) "having ill will."
