Thou hast rebuked the proud that are cursed, which do err from thy commandments. Thus saith the LORD; Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the LORD.
~ Psalm 119:21, Jeremiah 17:5
And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
~ Matthew 7:23
Whose fan is in his hand, and he will throughly purge his floor, and gather his wheat into the garner; but he will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire.
~ Matthew 3:12
For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse: for it is written, Cursed is every one that continueth not in all things which are written in the book of the law to do them. But that which beareth thorns and briers is rejected, and is nigh unto cursing; whose end is to be burned.
~ Galatians 3:10, Hebrews 6:8
In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother. And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.
~ 1 John 3:10, Matthew 25:46
And if thy hand offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter into life maimed, than having two hands to go into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched: Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched. And if thy foot offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter halt into life, than having two feet to be cast into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched: Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched. And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out: it is better for thee to enter into the kingdom of God with one eye, than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire: Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched. Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power;
~ Mark 9:43-48, 2 Thessalonians 1:9
The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name. And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever. And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them. And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.
~ Revelation 14:10-11, Revelation 20:10-15
And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day.
~ Jude 1:6
The Infernal Dungeon of Hell, by John Bunyan.
Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:
~ Matthew 25:41
Those in the infernal dungeon of Hell, will undergo a variety of torments. Those who are most afflicted upon earth, have seldom any more than one malady at a time. But should they have the plague, the gout, the stone, and fever all at one time — how miserable would they think themselves. Yet all that is but like the biting of a flea — compared to those intolerable, pungent pains which those in Hell endure. There, they have all the loathed variety of Hell to grapple with: the unquenchable fire to burn them; a lake of burning brimstone ever choking them; eternal chains to bind them; utter darkness to affright them, and a worm of conscience which gnaws upon them eternally. Any one of these is worse to bear — than all the torments which mankind ever felt on earth.
But the torments in Hell are also universal, afflicting each part of the body and soul — which renders what they suffer, most insufferable. In those illnesses which men are seized with on earth, though some parts are afflicted — other parts are free. But in Hell, each member of the soul and body is continually tormented: The eye is tormented with the sight of the devils, who appear in all the horrid and black shapes which sin can give them. The ear is tormented with the loud yellings and continual outcries of the damned. The nostrils are smothered with sulphurous flames.
The tongue is covered with burning blisters.
The the whole body is rolled in flames of liquid fire. The imagination is tormented with the thoughts of what a Heaven has been lost.
The memory is tormented with reflecting on those opportunities they had of being saved. The mind is tormented with considering how vainly precious time has been wasted. The understanding is tormented with the thoughts of of present pains, and future sorrows — which are to last forever. The conscience is tormented with a continual gnawing worm.
Another thing which makes the misery of Hell so dreadful, is the extremity of the torments. The fire which burns is so violent that all the water in the sea can never quench it. The pains suffered are so extreme, that it is impossible they should be known by any, but those who feel them.
Another part of Hell’s misery is the ceaselessness of the torments. As various, as universal, and as extremely violent as they are — they are continual, also. Nor have they the least rest from them. If there were any relaxation — it might be some allay. But what makes this condition so deplorable — is that there is no easing of the torments. “They will go away into eternal punishment.” Matthew 25:46
The company they have there, is another element of their misery. Tormenting devils and tormented souls are all the company. Dreadful shrieks and howlings, under the fierceness of pain, and fearful blasphemies, is all the conversation.
The place in which they suffer is another thing which increases the sufferings. Hell is the epitome of all misery — a prison, a dungeon, a bottomless pit, a lake of fire and brimstone, a furnace of fire which burns to eternity, the blackness of darkness forever.
The cruelty of our tormentors is another thing which adds to the torments. The tormentors are devils, in whom there is no pity. Being tormented themselves, they take pleasure in tormenting others.
But that which makes these sufferings most grievous — is that they shall always be so — these most intolerable sufferings shall last to all eternity. ‘Depart from Me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire.” will perpetually sound in the ears of the damned. The miserable situation they are in, shall be forever.
