(Hebrew: a cave)

In the Old Testament times it was the place where the souls of the dead abide: the land of oblivion (Psalms 87); called Hades in the Greek New Testament (Luke 16), and later used as a synonym for Gehenna, the hell of torments, the Latin infernus. Souls were treated according to their merit; the just looked for liberation.
