"Workers of iniquity" in the King James Version bible has been mentioned 63 times.

Workers or "paal" in Hebrew which means:

1. to do or make systematically or habitually

2. to practise - commit, make, ordain, wrought

Iniquity or "aven" in Hebrew which means:

1. to pant - to exert oneself

2. strictly nothingness

3. trouble, vanity, wickedness

4. specifically an idol: - affliction, evil, false, idol, iniquity, mischief, mourners

If we have workers of GOD, we also have workers of iniquity. These workers of iniquity have no knowledge or understanding of GOD. Sad to say, these workers of iniquity are more than the laborers of GOD. Whoever is born in this world is already a worker of iniquity because they don't have knowledge or understanding of GOD.

Matthew 9:37-38 (Amplified Bible)

9:37 Then He said to His disciples, The harvest is indeed plentiful, but the laborers are few.

9:38 So pray to the Lord of the harvest to force out and thrust laborers into His harvest.

Micah 4:12 (Amplified Bible)

4:12 But they know not the thoughts of the Lord, neither do they understand His plan, for He shall gather them as the sheaves to the threshing floor.

Psalms 92:6 (Amplified Bible)

92:6 A man in his rude and uncultivated state knows not, neither does a [self-confident] fool understand this:

Psalms 82:5 (Amplified Bible)

82:5 [The magistrates and judges] know not, neither will they understand; they walk on in the darkness [of complacent satisfaction]; all the foundations of the earth [the fundamental principles upon which rests the administration of justice] are shaking.

1 Corinthians 1:31 (Amplified Bible)

1:31 So then, as it is written, Let him who boasts and proudly rejoices and glories, boast and proudly rejoice and glory in the Lord.

All our boastings and glorying is because we know and understand the LORD GOD while workers of iniquity does not have any of these.

Jeremiah 9:24 (Amplified Bible)

9:24 But let him who glories glory in this: that he understands and knows Me [personally and practically, directly discerning and recognizing My character], that I am the Lord, Who practices loving-kindness, judgment, and righteousness in the earth, for in these things I delight, says the Lord.

"They eat up My people as they eat bread;"

Eat up or "akal" in Hebrew which means:

Psalms 27:2 (Amplified Bible)

27:2 When the wicked, even my enemies and my foes, came upon me to eat up my flesh, they stumbled and fell.

Psalms 14:1-7 (Amplified Bible)

14:1 To the Chief Musician. [A Psalm] of David. THE [empty-headed] fool has said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable deeds; there is none that does good or right.

14:2 The Lord looked down from heaven upon the children of men to see if there were any who understood, dealt wisely, and sought after God, inquiring for and of Him and requiring Him [of vital necessity].

14:3 They are all gone aside, they have all together become filthy; there is none that does good or right, no, not one.

14:4 Have all the workers of iniquity no knowledge, who eat up my people as they eat bread and who do not call on the Lord?
