And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.
Have the gates of death been opened unto thee? or hast thou seen the doors of the shadow of death?
Hell is naked before him, and destruction hath no covering.
Hell and destruction are before the LORD: how much more then the hearts of the children of men?
If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there.
Like sheep they are laid in the grave; death shall feed on them; and the upright shall have dominion over them in the morning; and their beauty shall consume in the grave from their dwelling.
Therefore hell hath enlarged herself, and opened her mouth without measure: and their glory, and their multitude, and their pomp, and he that rejoiceth, shall descend into it.
Hell and destruction are never full; so the eyes of man are never satisfied.
The grave; and the barren womb; the earth that is not filled with water; and the fire that saith not, It is enough.
Yea also, because he transgresseth by wine, he is a proud man, neither keepeth at home, who enlargeth his desire as hell, and is as death, and cannot be satisfied, but gathereth unto him all nations, and heapeth unto him all people:
Let us swallow them up alive as the grave; and whole, as those that go down into the pit:
Song of Solomon 8:6
Set me as a seal upon thine heart, as a seal upon thine arm: for love is strong as death; jealousy is cruel as the grave: the coals thereof are coals of fire, which hath a most vehement flame.
Destruction and death say, We have heard the fame thereof with our ears.
1 Corinthians 15:21
For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead.
Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil;
For where a testament is, there must also of necessity be the death of the testator.
For a testament is of force after men are dead: otherwise it is of no strength at all while the testator liveth.
For death is come up into our windows, and is entered into our palaces, to cut off the children from without, and the young men from the streets.
Thus saith the Lord GOD; In the day when he went down to the grave I caused a mourning: I covered the deep for him, and I restrained the floods thereof, and the great waters were stayed: and I caused Lebanon to mourn for him, and all the trees of the field fainted for him.
