    Sheol is a term from the Hebrew Bible, often translated as "hell", "grave", or "pit". In ancient Jewish beliefs, it is the place where the dead reside, a realm of darkness located deep below the earth. It is considered a neutral place, a realm where all souls, both righteous and wicked, go after death, irrespective of their moral conduct in life. However, interpretations and beliefs regarding Sheol differ among different traditions and texts.
