PIT

Translation of twelve Hebrew and two Greek words in KJV for water reservoir, ditch, or place of destruction. The most common use of “pit” is to refer to a well or cistern (Genesis 37:20-29; Exodus 21:33-34; Psalms 7:15; Psalms 55:23; Proverbs 26:27; Proverbs 28:10). See Cistern; Wells.

Sometimes “pit” refers to a ditch or a marsh (Jeremiah 14:3; Isaiah 30:14). Many times the word was used as a synonym for a place of destruction (Psalms 55:23), corruption (Psalms 16:10; Psalms 49:9; Isaiah 38:17), or death (Isaiah 14:15; Jonah 2:6). Three times KJV translated the word Sheol as “pit” (Numbers 16:30,Numbers 16:33; Job 17:16). One Greek word is translated “bottomless pit” in Revelation 9:1-2 (cf. Psalms 88:6). See Hell; Everlasting Punishment; Sheol.
