mauve -- a moderate grayish violet to reddish purple, or, any of various pale to moderate pinkish-purple or bluish-purple colours

maroon -- a dark reddish brown to dark purplish red.

You have wearied the LORD with your words. But you say, How have we wearied him? By saying, Everyone who does evil is good in the sight of the LORD, and he delights in them. Or by asking, Where is the God of justice? -- Malachi 2:17
For my people are foolish; they know me not; they are stupid children; they have no understanding. They are wise—in doing evil! But how to do good they know not. -- Jeremiah 4:22Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter! -- Isaiah 5:20
