Isaiah 66:24

And they shall go forth, and look upon the corpses of the men that have transgressed against me: for their worm shall not die, neither shall their fire be quenched; and they shall be an abhorrence unto all flesh.
Read Chapter 66

The prophet may allude to the fires kept up in the vale of Hinnon; (chap. xxx. 33.) and our Saviour applies this text to the damned, Mark ix. 43. All shall condemn them. (Calmet) Accedat lacrymis odium, dignusque puteris Ut mala cum tuleris plurima, plura feras. (Ovid in Ibin.)

Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation - 2 Peter 1:20
