Does the hell exist? As in the book of Isaiah, there is a reference to "fire" that is not "quenched".

Isaiah 66:24

"And they shall go forth, and look upon the carcasses of the men that have rebelled against Me; for their worm shall not die, neither shall their fire be quenched; and they shall be an abhorring unto all flesh."

  • The concept of reward and consequence is pretty fundamental in Judaism. I’m not sure your question: whether there is a concept of Hell in Judaism, or whether this verse in Isaiah is a reference to it. – DonielF Mar 29 '19 at 20:03
  • I wonder if there is a concept of Hell in Judaism – Manuel Milla Mar 29 '19 at 20:34
  • So the short answer is yes, but not in the sense that Christians talk about it. Maybe a better translation is “purgatory.” If I have time I’ll post a full answer with sources. – DonielF Mar 29 '19 at 20:36
