Robertson's Word Pictures of the New TestamentRevelation 20:14
- Were cast (eblhthsan).
- As the devil (20:10) followed the two beasts (19:20) into the same dread lake of fire. Death is personified and is disposed of, "the last enemy" (1 Corinthians 15:26) and Paul sings the paean of victory over death (1 Corinthians 15:54, from Hosea 13:14). Hades has no more terrors, for the saints are in heaven. There is no more fear of death (Hebrews 2:15), for death is no more (Revelation 21:4). The second death (2:11; 20:6; 21:8) is here identified as in 21:8 with the lake of fire.
