noun, plural enmities.
a feeling or condition of hostility; hatred; ill will; animosity; antagonism.
noun (pl) -ties
a feeling of hostility or ill will, as between enemies; antagonism

late 14c., from Old French enemistié “enmity, hostile act, aversion,” from Vulgar Latin *inimicitatem (nominative *inimicitas), from Latin inimicitia “enmity, hostility,” from inimicus “enemy” (see enemy). Related: Enmities.

deep-rooted hatred. “I will put enmity between thee and the woman, between thy seed and her seed” (Gen. 3:15). The friendship of the world is “enmity with God” (James 4:4; 1 John 2:15, 16). The “carnal mind” is “enmity against God” (Rom. 8:7). By the abrogation of the Mosaic institutes the “enmity” between Jew and Gentile is removed. They are reconciled, are “made one” (Eph. 2:15, 16).
