Bottom, Bottomless:

"bottomless" (from a, intensive, and bussos, "a depth"; akin to bathus, "deep"; Eng., bath), is used as a noun denoting the abyss (AV, "bottomless pit"). It describes an immeasurable depth, the underworld, the lower regions, the abyss of Sheol. In Rom 10:7, quoted from Deu 30:13, the abyss (the abode of the lost dead) is substituted for the sea (the change in the quotation is due to the facts of the Death and Resurrection of Christ); the AV has "deep" here and in Luk 8:31; the reference is to the lower regions as the abode of demons, out of which they can be let loose, Rev 11:7; 17:8; it is found seven times in the Apocalypse, Rev 9:1, 2, 11; 11:7; 17:8; 20:1, 3; in 9:1, 2 the RV has "the pit of the abyss."


The Blue Letter Bible ministry and the BLB Institute hold to the historical, conservative Christian faith, which includes a firm belief in the inerrancy of Scripture. Since the text and audio content provided by BLB represent a range of evangelical traditions, all of the ideas and principles conveyed in the resource materials are not necessarily affirmed, in total, by this ministry.
