Response to Strange the concept of Hell is never mentioned in the old testament..


to translate the Hebrew word sheol, meaning hades, the abode of all the dead. For example 2 Sam. 22:6, Job 11:8, 26:6, and other verses. It is a place where the dead do not know anything, they are asleep. KJV translates sheol three different ways into English, as grave, hell, or pit, depending on the verse. The KJV translators belonged to the church of England, so they believed the word sheol has more than one meaning, based on their doctrines about hell, which they inherited from the Catholic church.
