Etymology of misery

Origin of the word misery
The word misery comes from the French miserie from the Latin miseria (wretchedness) from miser (wretched), which is a transliteration of the Greek miseros/misaros (abominable, despicable, wretched; Gr: μυσαρός) from misos (evrything that cause abhorrence, repulsion, revulsion; Gr: μύσος).
.
.

From the same root:
English: miserable, miser, miserly
French: misere, miserable, miserieux, misericorde, miserere
Italian: miseria, misere, miserabile, misericordia, misserimo
Spanish: miseria, misero, miserable, misericordia, miserere
.
.

In modern Greek (Romeika):
a) mizeria: misery [Gr: μιζέρια; loanword]
b) mizeros: miserable, wretched [Gr: μίζερος]
