What Is Hell?

Hell (Gehenna) is the everlasting [Is 66:24; Mt 7:21; 25:41,46; 26:24; Mk 9:43,45,47; 1 Cor 6:9-10; 2 Thess 1:9; 2 Pt 2:21; Rev 14:11; 19:3; 20:9-10] place of punishment of damned men and demons by the pains of loss (of the beatific vision), material (corporeal) fire [Job 20:26; Is 26:11; Mt 3:12; 13:42,50; 18:8; 25:41; Jude 7; Rev 19:20] of the same species as our fire, brimstone [Ps 10:7; Is 30:33], storms of wind [Ps 10:7], snow waters [Job 24:19], the incorporeal worm of the remorse of conscience [Jud 16:21; Sir 7:19], incorporeal weeping [Lk 13:28], and material darkness [Job 18:5; Ps 28:7; Mt 22:13; 25:30; 2 Pt 2:17; Jude 13]. Hell is under the earth [Nu 16:31-33; Jon 2:3-4; Ps 54:16; Is 5:14; 14:9; Ek 26:20; Mt 12:40; Phil 2:10; Rev 5:3] and it will never run out of room [Prov 30:15-16]. The pains of Hell are essentially immutable and they differ in degree according to demerit.
