3. evil => vile.
- vile:  The ancestral meaning of vile is ‘of low status, quality, or price, cheap, common’; its use as a general epithet of ‘horribleness’ is a secondary development. It comes via Old French vil from Latin vīlis, a word of uncertain origin. The same source has given English revile  and vilify .
=> revile, vilify
