The word "torment" comes up three times in the brief story Jesus tells
of a man who went to hell
"And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in TORMENTS. . . " Luke 16:23
24 ". . . for I am TORMENTED in this FLAME." Luke 16:24
28 ". . .PLACE OF TORMENT." Luke 16:28
Hell will be beyond anything humanly imaginable!
In speaking of hell, the Bible describes it using the following words...
weeping - Matt 8:12,
wailing - Matt 13:42,
gnashing of teeth - Matt 13:50,
darkness - Matt 25:30,
flames - Luke 16:24,
burning - Isaiah 33:14,
torments - Luke 16:23, NOTE: there is more than one kind of torment. "Torments" is plural!
everlasting punishment - Matthew 25:46,
everlasting fire - Matthew 25:41, NOTE: this fire was originally prepared for the devil. So the devil will not be doing the tormenting. The devil will be just one of the tormented. Hell is God's wrath, not the devils!!!
