The deepest darkness (2 Pet 2:17)

“They are like

Waterless springs

And mists

Driven by a storm.

For them,

The deepest darkness

Has been reserved.”

οὗτοί εἰσιν πηγαὶ ἄνυδροι καὶ ὁμίχλαι ὑπὸ λαίλαπος ἐλαυνόμεναι, οἷς ὁ ζόφος τοῦ σκότους τετήρηται

This author said, “They are (οὗτοί εἰσιν) like waterless springs (πηγαὶ ἄνυδροι) and mists (καὶ ὁμίχλαι) driven (ἐλαυνόμεναι) by a storm (ὑπὸ λαίλαπος).  For them (οἷς ὁ), the deepest (ὁ ζόφος) darkness (τοῦ σκότους) has been reserved (τετήρηται).”  This author continued to talk about the future of the evil unrighteous people.  He said that they were like waterless springs or springs that had dried up or like the mists driven by a storm.  Their future was in the deepest darkness of hell that was reserved for them.  Have you ever seen a dried-up water spring?
