What is hell?

About hell, there are also lots of different ideas. The general perception seems to be the fact that hell is place where Satan punishes people forever. And those who are going to that place will live there suffering eternally. But is that what Bible teaches?

According to the Book of Revelation, at least hell is not devil’s kingdom. It is judgment for him and for all those who chose unrighteousness.

The devil who deceived them was thrown into the lake of fire and sulfur, where the beast and the false prophet are also. They will be tormented day and night forever and ever.
Revelation 20:10

As therefore the darnel is gathered up and burned with fire; so will it be at the end of this age. The Son of Man will send out his angels, and they will gather out of his kingdom all things that cause stumbling, and those who do iniquity, and will cast them into the furnace of fire. There will be weeping and the gnashing of teeth.
Mat. 13:40-42

What kind of place is hell, then? What is there to do? Is it a place where part of the peoples live suffering forever? Bible says hell is ever-burning fire lake and the second death.

If your hand causes you to stumble, cut it off. It is better for you to enter into life maimed, rather than having your two hands to go into Gehenna, into the unquenchable fire,
Mark 9:43

I saw the dead, the great and the small, standing before the throne, and they opened books. Another book was opened, which is the book of life. The dead were judged out of the things which were written in the books, according to their works. The sea gave up the dead who were in it. Death and Hades gave up the dead who were in them. They were judged, each one according to his works. Death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. This is the second death, the lake of fire. If anyone was not found written in the book of life, he was cast into the lake of fire.
Revelation 20:12-15

Based on the Bible, hell seems to be death that also touches the soul, not just the body. And as the Bible says, the wages of sin is death. Anyone who is not obedient to God lives in sin and is in the journey towards death, unless he turns back to God.

He said to them, "You are from beneath. I am from above. You are of this world. I am not of this world. I said therefore to you that you will die in your sins; for unless you believe that I am he, you will die in your sins."
John 8:23-24

For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Romans 6:23

"Most assuredly I tell you, he who hears my word, and believes him who sent me, has eternal life, and doesn't come into judgment, but has passed out of death into life.
John 5:24
