"SHEOL". HEBREW, SHEOL.

This Is Appendix 35 From The Companion Bible.

  The first occurrence of this word is in Genesis 37:35, where it is rendered "grave". It occurs sixty-five times in the Hebrew of the Old Testament; and only by studying each passage by itself can the student hope to gather the Biblical usage of the word. All heathen or traditional usages are not only worthless, but mischievous. The following are all the passages where the word "Sheol" occurs, with the rendering in each passage indicated thus: 1 = grave, 2 = pit, 3 = hell.

 (marg. grave).
  As meaning "THE grave," it is to be distinguished from keber, A grave, or, burying-place (from kabar, to bury, first occurrence Genesis 23:4): and bor, a pit, generally hewn in the rock, hence used of a cistern (Genesis 37:20) or a dungeon, etc., when dry. (See note on the word "well" in Genesis 21:19.¹)
____________________________
  ¹ Hebrew beer, a well (digged): not 'ayin, a spring or fountain; or bor, a cistern (hewn). This note was brought forward from Genesis 21:19.
