An inflammable mineral substance found in quantities on the shores of the Dead Sea. The cities of the plain were destroyed by a rain of fire and brimstone (Genesis 19:24,25 ). In Isaiah 34:9 allusion is made to the destruction of these cities. This word figuratively denotes destruction or punishment ( Job 18:15 ; Isaiah 30:33 ; 34:9 ; Psalm 11:6 ; Ezekiel 38:22 ). It is used to express the idea of excruciating torment in Revelation 14:10 ; 19:20 ; 20:10 .
