A cold day in Hell

Idiomatic Hell: Because Smart Words Hurt

The saying in the heading above is given as an example of an "idiom" - i.e., an expression that is peculiar to itself grammatically or that cannot be understood from the individual meanings of the words, strong evidence that the expression was first uttered by an idiot, hence the term "idiom."

Just sharing my opinion only, an Idiom into idiot or Idiot to Idiom, and the word "Hades from Greek language, and Sheol from Hebrew, but there is another word: "Gehenna" to putting a fire in that garbage to exterminate all the dirtiest and same thing a dead bodies into the world of Hell,but some say is grave and some cemeteries... just curious if someone to expand that definition. *Bones*

The Bible is not very explicit on these points, but one might look into related terms in neighboring cultures.
