The Hell Words of the Bible

The following Charts contain all the words in the Hebrew and Greek Scriptures which are translated Hell in some English Bible translations. Tentmaker Ministries prepared this material. Please refer to the link at the bottom which contains a long list of Bible translations which do not contain the word Hell from cover to cover. One day all correctly translated Bible versions will be without the pagan Hell and the pagan concept of everlasting punishment. Gary Amirault

Original 1611 KJV:
I made the nations to shake at the sound of his fall, when I cast him downe to hell with them that descend downe into the pit; and all the trees of Eden, the choice and best of Lebanon, all that drinke water, shall be comforted in the nether parts of the earth. They also went downe into hell with him vnto them that be slaine with the sword, and they that were his arme, that dwelt vnder his shadows in the middest of the heathen.

Contemporary KJV:
I made the nations to shake at the sound of his fall, when I cast him down to hell with them that descend into the pit; and all the trees of Eden, the choice and best of Lebanon, all that drink water, shall be comforted in the nether parts of the earth. They also went down into hell with him unto them that be slain with the sword; and they that were his arm, that dwelt under his shadow in the midst of the heathen.

NKJV:
I made the nations shake at the sound of its fall, when I cast it down to hell together with those who descend into the Pit; and all the trees of Eden, the choice and best of Lebanon, all that drink water, were comforted in the depths of the earth. They also went down to hell with it, with those slain by the sword; and those who were its strong arm dwelt in its shadows among the nations.

Note: 1611 KJV also contained the 14 Apocryphal books which we did not include in the count.

Note: Grave was spelled graue in 1611 KJV and Geneva bible

*1 prop. unseen {Strong's #86}
*2 depending on the Greek text, the word here may be hades {unseen} or thanatos {death}.
*3 margin "Or,hell"
*4 margin "Or,hell" in some 1611 printings. Some printings had "grave" in the text and "Or, hell" in the margin. Clearly some peculiar intentional hanky panky going on.
*5 Spelling as in the original
*6 Capitalized in the original
*7 note says Greek Hades
*8 Hades] The unseen World, the adobe of departed spirits, In the A.V. both this word and 'Gehenna' are rendered 'Hell.' Each occurs twelve times. In this translation the two words are everywhere kept distinct.
*9 The Unseen World] Greek, 'Hades,' the adobe of departed spirits; Hebrew, 'Sheol.' "Hades is, as it were, the sepulche of souls" (Bengel).
