They are burning the wicked and blessings the righteous

The difference between Evil and Wicked. When used as nouns, evil means moral badness, whereas wicked means people who are wicked. When used as adjectives, evil means intending to harm, whereas wicked means evil or mischievous by nature. Wicked is also adverb with the meaning: very, extremely. The International Bible Encyclopedia (ISBE) gives this definition of wicked according to the Bible: "The state of being wicked; a mental disregard for justice, righteousness, truth, honor, virtue; evil in thought and life; depravity; sinfulness; criminality."

Whatever the misty origins, like it or not, “wicked” is now our identity. As for me, I side with a commenter on the decidedly crowdsourced website Urban Dictionary, who wrote that it's “a word us Bostonians use so our out-of-town friends can make fun of us.” Wicked literally means evil. In slang it means perfect or excellent. Typically used as an exclamation, and used more often in British English than in the American one.

Most common North American alternatives are "awesome" and "rad". The Christian Bible exercises "the dominant influence upon ideas about God and evil in the Western world." In the Old Testament, evil is understood to be an opposition to God as well as something unsuitable or inferior such as the leader of the fallen angels Satan In the New Testament the Greek word poneros is used to.
