And I saw: and behold, a pale horse, and he that sat upon it, his name was Death, and hades followed with him; and authority was given to him over the fourth of the earth to slay with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and by the beasts of the earth.
Have the gates of death been revealed unto thee? and hast thou seen the gates of the shadow of death?
Sheol is naked before him, and destruction hath no covering.
Sheol and destruction are before Jehovah; how much more then the hearts of the children of men!
If I ascend up into the heavens thou art there; or if I make my bed in Sheol, behold, thou art there;
Like sheep are they laid in Sheol: Death feedeth on them; and the upright shall have dominion over them in the morning; and their comeliness shall be for Sheol to consume, that there be no habitation for them.
Therefore doth Sheol enlarge its desire, and open its mouth without measure; and her splendour shall descend into it, and her multitude, and her tumult, and all that is joyful within her.
Sheol and destruction are insatiable; so the eyes of man are never satisfied.
Sheol, and the barren womb; the earth which is not filled with water, and the fire which saith not, It is enough.
And moreover, the wine is treacherous: he is a proud man, and keepeth not at rest, he enlargeth his desire as Sheol, and he is like death and cannot be satisfied; and he assembleth unto him all nations, and gathereth unto him all peoples.
let us swallow them up alive as Sheol, and whole, as those that go down into the pit;
Song of Solomon 8:6
Set me as a seal upon thy heart, As a seal upon thine arm: For love is strong as death; Jealousy is cruel as Sheol: The flashes thereof are flashes of fire, Flames of Jah.
Destruction and death say, We have heard its report with our ears.
1 Corinthians 15:21
For since by man came death, by man also resurrection of those that are dead.
Since therefore the children partake of blood and flesh, he also, in like manner, took part in the same, that through death he might annul him who has the might of death, that is, the devil;
(For where there is a testament, the death of the testator must needs come in.
For a testament is of force when men are dead, since it is in no way of force while the testator is alive.)
For death is come up through our windows, is entered into our palaces, to cut off the children from the street, the young men from the broadways.
Thus saith the Lord Jehovah: In the day when he went down to Sheol, I caused a mourning: I covered the deep for him, and I restrained the floods thereof, and the great waters were stayed; and I made Lebanon black for him, and all the trees of the field fainted for him.
