Throughout the Bible, “wormwood” is used to describe bitterness. Proverbs 5:3 says this:

 

For the lips of a forbidden woman drip honey, and her speech is smoother than oil, but in the end she is bitter as wormwood

 

Lamentations 3:

He has filled me with bitterness; he has sated me with wormwood.

 

Amos 5:

O you who turn justice to wormwood and cast down righteousness to the earth!

 

Amos 6:

But you have turned justice into poison and the fruit of righteousness into wormwood

 

Each instance in the scriptures regarding “wormwood” is describing sinful and unrighteous descriptions of those who refused to walk in the pathway of God. Never in the scriptures do you find a single instance of “wormwood” as a good thing, because it was an extremely bitter tasting tree. Where righteousness is as sweet as honey, unrighteousness is as bitter as wormwood.
