Hadēs (2 syl.)

.

The places of the departed spirit till the resurrection. It may be either Paradise or “Tartarus.”

⁂ It is a great pity that it has been translated “hellnine or ten times in the common version of the New Testament, as “hell” in theology means the inferno. The Hebrew sheol is about equal to the Greek haidēs, that is, a, privative, and idein, to see.
