Proverbs 27:12 “A prudent man forseeth the evil, and hideth himself; but the simple pass on, and are punished.”

[How are you going to “hide” from hell?]

Colossians 3:3 “For ye are dead , and your life is hid with Christ in God.”

(1) So-called “Scholars” say: “In the bible the word ‘hell’ is just a reference to ‘the grave.’”

(2) Men say: “Well, if there’s a hell, it’s right here on earth.”

(1) “Death” and/or “the Grave” (The word “hell” is figuratively used this way occasionally.)
