HOW MANY TIMES IS HELL MENTIONED IN SCRIPTURE?

How many times is hell mentioned in the Bible?

Answer:

This would depend on the translation being used. In the oldest manuscripts available, the Hebrew word sheol appears 65 times. The King James Version translates this Hebrew word sheol, 31 times as “hell,” 31 times as “grave,” and 3 times as “pit.” So in the “Old Testiment,” the KJ version uses the word “hell” 31 times, but it interesting to note that the same Hebrew word Sheol was also translated into two other words, “grave” and “pit.”
In the “New Testiment,” the King James Version translates the Greek word “hades” in all 10 places it occurs, as “hell.” The King James Version also uses the word “hell” or “hellfire” when translating the Greek word “Gehenna” 12 times.
Other Bible translations translate the Hebrew word sheol and Greek word hades in different ways, some don’t use the English word “hell” at all, instead trasliterating the Hebrew and Greek words directly as “sheol” and “hades.”

I’d like to add the greek word “tartaroos” or tartarus from which Hell is translated in 2 Peter 2:4 which describes the deeps parts of the dark pit where the fallen angels are reserved for punishment. This is the same place the demons in the swine did not want Jesus to sent them; that is, the Abyss. Also, consider a careful study in the same context of 2 Peter and that is 2 Peter 2:9 which places the deceased wicked in the same place as the fallen angels. Study that verse in the original language or using various clearer versions of the Bible like The English Standard Version.

In the KJV of the Bible, the word Hell, though not meaning the same thing in every verse, is used 54 times
