Greek HADES (Hell) connotes 'NOT SEE'

The King James Version and others translate Hades as hell. Delve into the context of these verses reading 'Hades' instead to understand the concept of Hades. Hades holds the dead and not the living (Revelation 20:13).

(13)  And the sea gave up the dead that were in it; and death and Hades gave up the dead that were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.
