Snakes! You offspring of vipers! How can you escape the judgment of Gehenna? Bible see other translations

“You offspring of vipers!” Jesus called the religious leaders a generation of vipers (Matt. 12:34; 23:33). John did too (Matt. 3:7; Luke 3:7).

“Gehenna.” In this context, Gehenna is the Lake of Fire (Rev. 20:14-15).

[For more on Gehenna and how it came to represent the Lake of Fire, see commentary on Matthew 5:22. For information on annihilation in the lake of fire, see Appendix 5: “Annihilation in the Lake of Fire.”]
