God cares for the oppressed, the hurting, and the abandoned. Those that take advantage of these poor and downtrodden peoples THEN and NOW would be considered the wicked. See: Psalm 147:3 He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds. Psalm 147:6 The LORD lifts up the humble; he casts the wicked to the ground. Deut. 10:18 He executes justice for the fatherless and the widow, and loves the sojourner, giving him food and clothing. Exodus 22:22 You shall not mistreat any widow or fatherless child. Proverbs 28:8, Isaiah 32:3-8, and many, many more scriptures. God Bless
I think the "wicked" refers to anyone who is opposed to God and His ways. It says that God frustrates the PLANS of the wicked -- so if their plans/ways are opposed to God's plans, that would make them wicked.
The wicked in Ps 146:10 or indeed any where so mentioned in the bible is simply referring to the sinner. The sinner is an evil doer who hurts others and hurts God's feelings by disobeying his laws and the end of all the wicked or sinners is eternal damnation if they refuse to humble themselves and repent.
