Hastings' Dictionary of the Bible
DAMNATION . The words ‘damn,’ ‘damnable,’ and ‘damnation’ have, through their use in the literature of theology, come to express condemnation to everlasting punishment . But in the English Bible they mean no more than is now expressed by ‘condemn’ or ‘condemnation.’ In some places a better translation than ‘condemnation’ is ‘judgment,’ as in John 5:29 ‘the resurrection of damnation’ (Gr. krisis , RV [Note: Revised Version.] ‘judgment’). See Judgment.
