KJV Translation Count — Total: 11x
The KJV translates Strong's G86 in the following manner: hell (10x), grave (1x).
  1. name Hades or Pluto, the god of the lower regions

  2. Orcus, the nether world, the realm of the dead

  3. later use of this word: the grave, death, hell

    In Biblical Greek it is associated with Orcus, the infernal regions, a dark and dismal place in the very depths of the earth, the common receptacle of disembodied spirits. Usually Hades is just the abode of the wicked, Luk 16:23, Rev 20:13, 14; a very uncomfortable place. (TDNT)

STRONGS NT 86: Ἅιδης
Ἅιδης, ᾅδης, -ου, , (for the older Ἀΐδης, which Homer uses, and this from α privative and ἰδεῖν, not to be seen [cf. Lob. Path. Element. 2:6f]); in the classics
1. a proper name, Hades, Pluto, the god of the lower regions; so in Homer always.
2. an appellative, Orcus, the nether world, the realm of the dead [cf. Theocritus, idyll. 2,159 schol. τὴν τοῦ ᾅδου κρούει πύλην· τοῦτ’ ἔστιν ἀποθανεῖται.
In the Sept. the Hebrew שְׁאול is almost always rendered by this word (once by θάνατος, 2 Samuel 22:6); it denotes, therefore, in Biblical Greek Orcus, the infernal regions, a dark (Job 10:21) and dismal place (but cf. γέεννα and παράδεισος) in the very depths of the earth (Job 11:8; Isaiah 57:9; Amos 9:2, etc.; see ἄβυσσος), the common receptacle of disembodied spirits: Luke 16:23; εἰς ᾅδου namely, δόμον, Acts 2:27, 31, according to a very common ellipsis, cf. Winers Grammar, 592 (550) [Buttmann, 171 (149)]; (but L T Tr WH in Acts 2:27 and T WH in both verses read εἰς ᾅδην; so the Sept. Psalm 15:10 (Ps. 16:10)); πύλαι ᾅδου, Matthew 16:18 (πυλωροὶ ᾅδου, Job 38:17; see πύλη); κλεῖς τοῦ ᾅδου, Revelation 1:18; Hades as a power is personified, 1 Corinthians 15:55 (where L T Tr WH read θάνατε for R G ᾅδη [cf. Acts 2:24 Tr marginal reading]); Revelation 6:8; Revelation 20:13f. Metaphorically, ἕως ᾅδου [καταβαίνειν or] καταβιβάζεσθαι to [go or] be thrust down into the depth of misery and disgrace: Matthew 11:23 [here L Tr WH καταβαίνειν]; Luke 10:15 [here Tr marginal reading WH text καταβαίνειν]. [See especially Boettcher, De Inferis, under the word Ἅιδης in Greek index. On the existence and locality of Hades cf. Greswell on the Parables, Appendix, chapter x, vol. v, part ii, pp. 261-406; on the doctrinal significance of the word see the BB. DD. and E. R. Craven in Lange on Revelation, pp. 364-377.]
