Wicked / Wickedness – from “Job” the most Afflicted and Double Blessed

And when thou prayest,
thou shalt not be as the hypocrites  are:
for they love to pray standing in the synagogues
and in the corners of the streets,
that they may be seen of men.
Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.”
– Matt: 6:5

I am no preacher, but, am a sinner and living in this world in HIS mercy. For a sinner like me too, while reading Bible, the following verses were given in the context of “Wicked / Wickedness from the book of Job, in The Old Testament, from The Holy Bible-KJV. 

Job-3:17 There the wicked cease  from troubling;
and there the weary be at rest.

Job-4:8 Even as I have seen,
they that plow iniquity,
and sow wickedness,
reap the same.

Job-8:22 They that hate thee shall be clothed with shame;
and the dwelling place of the wicked shall come to nought.

Job-9:22 This  is one  thing, therefore I said  it,
He destroyeth the perfect and the wicked.

Job-9:24 The earth is given into the hand of the wicked:
he covereth the faces of the judges thereof;
if not, where,  and who  is he?

Job-9:29  If I be wicked,
why then labour I in vain?

Job-10:3  Is it good unto thee that thou shouldest oppress,
that thou shouldest despise the work of thine hands,
and shine upon the counsel of the wicked?

Job-10:7 Thou knowest that I am not wicked;
and  there is none that can deliver out of thine hand.

Job-10:15 If I be wicked, woe unto me;
and  if I be righteous,
yet will I not lift up my head.
I am full of confusion;
therefore see thou mine affliction;

Job-11:11 For he knoweth vain men:
he seeth wickedness also;
will he not then consider  it?

Job-11:14 If iniquity  be in thine hand,
put it far away,
and let not wickedness dwell in thy tabernacles.

Job-11:20 But the eyes of the wicked shall fail,
and they shall not escape,
and their hope  shall be as the giving up of the ghost.

Job-13:7 Will ye speak wickedly for God?
and talk deceitfully for him?

Job-15:20 The wicked man travaileth with pain all  his days,
and the number of years is hidden to the oppressor.

Job-16:11 God hath delivered me to the ungodly,
and turned me over into the hands of the wicked.

Job-18:5 Yea, the light of the wicked shall be put out,
and the spark of his fire shall not shine.

Job-18:21 Surely such  are the dwellings of the wicked,
and this  is the place  of him that knoweth not God.

Job-20:5 That the triumphing of the wicked  is short,
and the joy of the hypocrite  but for a moment?

Job-20:12 Though wickedness be sweet in his mouth,
though he hide it under his tongue;

Job-20:22 In the fulness of his sufficiency he shall be in straits:
every hand of the wicked shall come upon him.

Job-20:29 This  is the portion of a wicked man from God,
and the heritage appointed unto him by God.

Job-21:7 Wherefore do the wicked live,
become old, yea,
are mighty in power?

Job-21:16 Lo, their good  is not in their hand:
the counsel of the wicked is far from me.

Job-21:28 For ye say, Where  is the house of the prince?
and where  are the dwelling places of the wicked?

Job-21:30 That the wicked is reserved to the day of destruction?
they shall be brought forth to the day of wrath.

Job-22:5  Is not thy wickedness great?
and thine iniquities infinite?

Job-22:15 Hast thou marked the old way
which wicked men have trodden?

Job-22:18 Yet he filled their houses with good  things:
but the counsel of the wicked is far from me.

Job-24:6 They reap  every one his corn in the field:
and they gather the vintage of the wicked.

Job-24:20 The womb shall forget him;
the worm shall feed sweetly on him;
he shall be no more remembered;
and wickedness shall be broken as a tree.

Job-27:4 My lips shall not speak wickedness,
nor my tongue utter deceit.

Job-27:7 Let mine enemy be as the wicked,
and he that riseth up against me as the unrighteous.

Job-27:13 This  is the portion of a wicked man with God,
and the heritage of oppressors,
which they shall receive of the Almighty.

14. If his children be multiplied,  it is for the sword:
and his offspring shall not be satisfied with bread.
15. Those that remain of him shall be buried in death:
and his widows shall not weep.
16. Though he heap up silver as the dust, and prepare raiment as the clay;
17. He may prepare  it, but the just shall put  it on,
and the innocent shall divide the silver.
18. He buildeth his house as a moth,
and as a booth  that the keeper maketh.
19. The rich man shall lie down, but he shall not be gathered:
he openeth his eyes, and he  is not.
20. Terrors take hold on him as waters,
a tempest stealeth him away in the night.
21. The east wind carrieth him away, and he departeth:
and as a storm hurleth him out of his place.
22. For  God shall cast upon him, and not spare:
he would fain flee out of his hand.
23.  Men shall clap their hands at him,
and shall hiss him out of his place.

Job-29:17 And I brake the jaws of the wicked,
and plucked the spoil out of his teeth.

Job-31:3  Is not destruction to the wicked?
and a strange  punishment to the workers of iniquity?

Job-34:8 Which goeth in company with the workers of iniquity,
and walketh with wicked men.

Job-34:10 Therefore hearken unto me,
ye men of understanding:
far be it from God,
that he should do wickedness;
and  from the Almighty,
that he should commit iniquity.

Job-34:12 Yea, surely God will not do wickedly,
neither will the Almighty pervert judgment.

Job-34:18  Is it fit to say to a king,
Thou art wicked?
and to princes,
Ye are ungodly?

Job-34:26 He striketh them as wicked men
in the open sight of others;

27. Because they turned back from him,
and would not consider any of his ways:
28. So that they cause the cry of the poor to come unto him,
and he heareth the cry of the afflicted.

Job-34:36 My desire  is that Job may be tried
unto the end
because of  his answers for wicked men.

Job-35:8 Thy wickedness  may hurt a man as thou  art;
and thy righteousness  may profit the son of man.

Job-36:6 He preserveth not the life of the wicked:
but giveth right to the poor.

Job-36:17 But thou hast fulfilled the judgment of the wicked:
judgment and justice take hold  on thee.

Job-38:13 That it might take hold of the ends of the earth,
that the wicked might be shaken out of it?

Job-38:15 And from the wicked their light is withholden,
and the high arm shall be broken.

Job-40:12 Look on every one  that is proud,
and bring him low;
and tread down the wicked in their place.
