Greek - abyss
ABYSS

(aw bihssss') Transliteration of Greek word abussos literally meaning “without bottom.” KJV translates, “the deep,” or bottomless pit. NAS, NIV, RSV use abyss to refer to the dark abode of the dead (Romans 10:7). Abaddon rules the Abyss (Revelation 9:11), from which will come the beast of the end time of Revelation (Revelation 11:7). The beast of the Abyss faces ultimate destruction (Revelation 17:8). Satan will be bound there during the millennium (Revelation 20:1-3). See Hades; Hell; Sheol.
