What is hell like?

Luke 16:22-26But Abraham said to him, ‘Son, remember that during your lifetime you had everything you wanted, and Lazarus had nothing. So now he is here being comforted, and you are in anguish. And besides, there is a great chasm separating us. No one can cross over to you from here, and no one can cross over to us from there.’

2 Peter 2:4For God did not spare even the angels who sinned. He threw them into hell, in gloomy pits of darkness, where they are being held until the day of judgment.

Revelation 19:20Both the beast and his false prophet were thrown alive into the lake of fire that burns with sulfur.

Jude 1:7those cities were destroyed by fire and are a warning of the eternal fire that will punish all who are evil.

Luke 14:22-24After the servant had done this, he reported, ‘There is still room for more.’ So his master said, ‘Go out into the country lanes and behind the hedges and urge anyone you find to come, so that the house will be full. For none of those I first invited will get even the smallest taste of my banquet.’”

The rich man also died and was buried, and his soul went to the place of the dead. There, in torment, he saw Lazarus in the far distance with Abraham. The rich man shouted, “Father Abraham, have some pity! Send Lazarus over here to dip the tip of his finger in water and cool my tongue, because I am in anguish in these flames.”

The Bible compares hell to  an agonizing fire. It is also described as a deep pit—a dark and gloomy place where everyone is forever separated from God and all that is good. Some people think that will be fun, like a never-ending raunchy party. On the contrary, it seems that the Bible alludes to hell as a lonely place where its people are isolated from relationships.
