Gnashing of teeth

Grating one's teeth together. In the Old Testament, gnashing of teeth was an expression of anger reserved for the wicked and for one's enemies (Job 16:9; Psalms 35:16; Psalms 37:12; Lamentations 2:16). In the New Testament, gnashing of teeth is associated with the place of future punishment (for example, Matthew 8:12; Matthew 13:42,Matthew 13:50). There the gnashing of teeth is perhaps an expression of the futility of the wicked before God's judgment or else a demonstration of their continuing refusal to repent and acknowledge the justness of God's judgment. (Compare Revelation 16:9, Revelation 16:11.) See Hell; Punishment, Everlasting.
