Vayikra: Chapter 39

There are places in Gehenom


The Faithful Shepherd tells us that there is a place in Gehenom for every sin. The Satan is in charge of every chieftain who rules those places, and he is appointed over all sins. But if one repents, the record of every sin is blotted from its place in Gehenom. The sages of the Mishnah taught that an evil man's sins are engraved on his bones while a righteous man's merits are engraved on his bones. The souls of evil men will be burned by the fire of the throne, the fire of the four fiery living creatures that surround the throne of Judgment.
