What Scripture Says About Hell

“And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul.
But rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.”
Matthew 10:28

“They will suffer the punishment of eternal destruction,
away from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of his might…”
2nd Thessalonians 1:9

“But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers,
sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars

shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone,
which is the second death.”

Revelation 21:8

“The Son of Man will send out his angels,
and they will gather out of his kingdom all things that offend,

and those who practice lawlessness, and will cast them into the furnace of fire.
There will be wailing and gnashing of teeth.”
Matthew 13:41-42

“Then he will also say to those on the left hand,
‘Depart from me, you cursed,

into the everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels…”
Matthew 25:41

“And these will go away into everlasting punishment,
but the righteous into eternal life.”
Matthew 25:46

“The angels will come forth, separate the wicked from among the just,
and cast them into the furnace of fire.
There will be wailing and gnashing of teeth.”
Matthew 13:49-50

“And if your foot causes you to sin, cut it off.
It is better for you to enter life lame,
rather than having two feet, to be cast into hell,
into the fire that shall never be quenched –
where their worm does not die
and the fire is not quenched.”
Mark 9:45-46

“…as Sodom and Gomorrah, and the cities around them in a similar manner to these,
having given themselves over to sexual immorality
and gone after strange flesh, are set forth AS AN EXAMPLE,
suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.
Jude 1:7

“He who believes in him is not condemned;
but he who does not believe is condemned already,
because he has not believed in the name
of the only begotten Son of God.”
John 3:18

“Hell from beneath is excited about you,
to meet you at your coming;
It stirs up the dead for you, * rephaim #7496
all the chief ones of the earth;
It has raised up from their thrones all the kings of the nations.
They all shall speak and say to you:
‘Have you also become as weak as we?
Have you become like us?
Your pomp is brought down to Sheol,
and the sound of your stringed instruments;
the maggot is spread under you, and worms cover you.
Isaiah 14:9-11

“Therefore Sheol has enlarged itself
and opened its mouth beyond measure.
Their glory and their multitude and their pomp,
and he who is jubilant, shall descend into it.”
