The strong one will become tinder, and his work a spark; both will burn together, with no one to quench [the flames].
And the LORD will make the splendor of His voice heard and reveal His arm striking in angry wrath and a flame of consuming fire, in driving rain, a torrent, and hailstones.
Indeed! Topheth has been ready for the king for a long time now. His funeral pyre is deep and wide, with plenty of fire and wood. The breath of the LORD, like a torrent of brimstone, kindles it.
The peoples will be burned to ashes, like thorns cut down and burned in a fire.
For the LORD has a day of vengeance, a time of paying back [Edom] for its hostility against Zion.
[Edom's] streams will be turned into pitch, her soil into sulfur; her land will become burning pitch.
It will never go out-- day or night. Its smoke will go up forever. It will be desolate, from generation to generation; no one will pass through it forever and ever.
For the LORD will execute judgment on all flesh with His fiery sword, and many will be slain by the LORD.
"Those who dedicate and purify themselves to [enter] the groves following their leader, eating meat from pigs, vermin, and rats, will perish together." [This is] the LORD's declaration.
Now the people began complaining openly before the LORD about hardship. When the LORD heard, His anger burned, and the fire from the LORD blazed among them and consumed the outskirts of the camp.
Then the people cried out to Moses, and he prayed to the LORD, and the fire died down.
So that place was named Taberah, because the LORD's fire had blazed among them.
For fire has been kindled because of My anger and burns to the depths of Sheol; it devours the land and its produce, and scorches the foundations of the mountains.
For that would be a disgrace; it would be a crime deserving punishment.
For it is a fire that consumes down to Abaddon; it would destroy my entire harvest.
The Lord God showed me this: The Lord God was calling for a judgment by fire. It consumed the great deep and devoured the land.
Who can withstand His indignation? Who can endure His burning anger? His wrath is poured out like fire, even rocks are shattered before Him.
For they will be consumed like entangled thorns, like a drunkard's drink, and like straw that is fully dry.
"For indeed, the day is coming, burning like a furnace, when all the arrogant and everyone who commits wickedness will become stubble. The coming day will consume them," says the LORD of Hosts, "not leaving them root or branches.
So it will be at the end of the age. The angels will go out, separate the evil people from the righteous,
and throw them into the blazing furnace. In that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
Then He will also say to those on the left, 'Depart from Me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the Devil and his angels!
And if your hand causes your downfall, cut it off. It is better for you to enter life maimed than to have two hands and go to hell-- the unquenchable fire,
[[where Their worm does not die, and the fire is not quenched.]]
And if your foot causes your downfall, cut it off. It is better for you to enter life lame than to have two feet and be thrown into hell-- [[the unquenchable fire,
where Their worm does not die, and the fire is not quenched.]]
And if your eye causes your downfall, gouge it out. It is better for you to enter the kingdom of God with one eye than to have two eyes and be thrown into hell,
where Their worm does not die, and the fire is not quenched.
For everyone will be salted with fire.
Salt is good, but if the salt should lose its flavor, how can you make it salty? Have salt among yourselves and be at peace with one another."
Therefore the Lord God of Hosts will inflict an emaciating disease on the well-fed of Assyria, and He will kindle a burning fire under its glory.
Israel's Light will become a fire, and its Holy One, a flame. In one day it will burn up Assyria's thorns and thistles.
He will completely destroy the glory of its forests and orchards as a sickness consumes a person.
I am not angry, but if it produces thorns and briers for Me, I will fight against it, trample it, and burn it to the ground.
But if it produces thorns and thistles, it is worthless and about to be cursed, and will be burned at the end.
and say to the forest there: Hear the word of the LORD! This is what the Lord God says: I am about to ignite a fire in you, and it will devour every green tree and every dry tree in you. The blazing flame will not be extinguished, and every face from the south to the north will be scorched by it.
Then all people will see that I, Yahweh, have kindled it. It will not be extinguished."
Therefore, as a tongue of fire consumes straw and as dry grass shrivels in the flame, so their roots will become like something rotten and their blossoms will blow away like dust, for they have rejected the instruction of the LORD of Hosts, and they have despised the word of the Holy One of Israel.
But the wicked will perish; the LORD's enemies, like the glory of the pastures, will fade away-- they will fade away like smoke.
Therefore, they will be like the morning mist, like the early dew that vanishes, like chaff blown from a threshing floor, or like smoke from a window.
I will drive the northerner far from you and banish him to a dry and desolate land, his front ranks into the Dead Sea, and his rear guard into the Mediterranean Sea. His stench will rise; yes, his rotten smell will rise, for he has done catastrophic things.
and the smoke of their torment will go up forever and ever. There is no rest day or night for those who worship the beast and his image, or anyone who receives the mark of his name.
