(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 .
