2 Peter 2:4 The Passion Translation (TPT)

Now, don’t forget, God had no pity for the angels when they sinned[a] but threw them into the lowest, darkest dungeon of gloom[b] and locked them in chains, where they are firmly held until the judgment of torment.[c]


  1. 2 Peter 2:4 Because of the context of Noah’s flood, these were possibly the “Watchers,” angels who sinned and rebelled against God’s laws by having sexual relations with women, thus producing offspring (Gen. 6:1-4). They are mentioned in Dan. 4:13, 17, 23; Jude 6–7; the Book of 1 Enoch 6–10; the Book of Jubilees 5; and the Dead Sea Scrolls (The Book of Giants). God put them in chains (ropes) and bound them in Tartarus (the deepest pit of gloom) until their final judgment.
  2. 2 Peter 2:4 The Greek uses the term Tartarus, a Hellenistic mythical term for the subterranean underworld, the lowest pit (of hell).
  3. 2 Peter 2:4 As translated from the Aramaic and two older Greek uncials.
