Evildoer
EVILDOER — one who does evil, wicked acts. The psalmist equates “evildoers” with “workers of iniquity” (Ps. 37:1). Although most common in the Book of Psalms, the word appears elsewhere as well (Jer. 20:13; 1 Pet. 2:12). Generally, the word “evildoers” is applied to the enemies of God and his people
