Sheol is a place where the wicked go to when they die.
They spend their days in prosperity, And suddenly they go down to Sheol.
Drought and heat consume the snow waters, So does Sheol those who have sinned.
The wicked will return to Sheol, Even all the nations who forget God.
Let me not be put to shame, O LORD, for I call upon You; Let the wicked be put to shame,
let them be silent in Sheol. (Ps 31:17)
Let death come deceitfully upon them; Let them go down alive to Sheol, For evil
is in their dwelling, in their midst. (Ps 55:15)
For the lips of an adulteress drip honey And smoother than oil is her speech; But in the
end she is bitter as wormwood, Sharp as a two-edged sword. Her feet go down to death, Her steps take hold of
Sheol. (Prov 5:3-5)
Her house is the way to Sheol, Descending to the chambers of death.
Stolen water is sweet; And bread eaten in secret is pleasant. But he does not know that
the dead are there, That her guests are in the depths of Sheol.
Behind the door and the doorpost You have set up your sign; Indeed, far removed from Me,
you have uncovered yourself, And have gone up and made your bed wide. And you have made an agreement for yourself
with them, You have loved their bed, You have looked on their manhood. You have journeyed to the king with oil
And increased your perfumes; You have sent your envoys a great distance And made them go down to Sheol.
Thus says the Lord God, "On the day when it went down to Sheol I caused lamentations;
I closed the deep over it and held back its rivers. And its many waters were stopped up, and I made Lebanon mourn
for it, and all the trees of the field wilted away on account of it. I made the nations quake at the sound of its
fall when I made it go down to Sheol with those who go down to the pit; and all the well-watered trees of Eden,
the choicest and best of Lebanon, were comforted in the earth beneath. They also went down with it to Sheol
to those who were slain by the sword; and those who were its strength lived under its shade among the nations.
Nor do they lie beside the fallen heroes of the uncircumcised, who went down to Sheol
with their weapons of war and whose swords were laid under their heads; but the punishment for their iniquity
rested on their bones, thought the terror of these heroes was once in the land of the living.
