1: of or relating to the bottom waters of the ocean depths
 2: impossible to comprehend : unfathomable

Abyssal is a relatively rare word, though it's derived from the more prevalent noun, abyss.  All four terms descend from the Late Latin word abyssus, which is in turn derived from the Greek abyssos ("bottomless"). Abyss and abysm are synonymous (both can refer to the mythical bottomless pit in old accounts of the universe or can be used more broadly in reference to any immeasurably deep gulf), but the adjectives abyssal and abysmal are not used identically. Abyssal can mean "incomprehensible" (as in "showed abyssal ignorance") but it's most often found in contexts referring to the bottom of the sea. Abysmal shares the oceanographic sense with abyssal, but it more frequently means "immeasurably great" or "absolutely wretched."


Pandora’s box. In ancient mythology, Pandora was the first woman created by the gods, each of whom gave her a special gift, hence her name, which means “all gifted.” One day, Pandora naively lifted the lid on a box containing all the evils of the world. The myth was used to explain death and destruction; nowadays, it’s also a metaphor that suggests how small actions can have unforeseen consequences.


To invoke evil on: curse

Imprecate ultimately derives from the Latin verb precari, meaning "to pray, ask, or entreat." Precari is also the ancestor of such English words as deprecate (which once meant "to pray against an evil," though that sense is now archaic), precatory ("expressing a wish") and even pray itself (which has deeper roots in the Latin noun for a request or entreaty, prex).
