Dark Places of the Earth



What are these dark places?

Places of cruelty

Psalm 74:20

Have respect unto the covenant: for the dark places of the earth are full of the habitations of cruelty.

Places of heavy chains

He has set me in dark places, as they that be dead of old.

He hath hedged me about, that I cannot get out: he hath made my chain heavy. Lam 3:6


Dark places also sound like caves

Kings described as trying to run away from God to caves during his wrath:

And they shall go into the holes of the rocks, and into the caves of the earth, for fear of the Lord, and for the glory of his majesty, when he arises to shake terribly the earth..  Isa 2:19

And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains; Rev 6: 15

The question is, what meets them there?


Could one dark place also be called the “pit?”

From a secular source




Possible interpretation of dark places

Darkness indicates the absence of light, both physical light, and the light of God.

Hell is described as a dark place, full of cruelty and punishment.

If so, David seemed to know about it.

And he expressed a warning along with it

If one broke the covenant, one might end up there, as the warning to keep the covenant immediately precedes the warning about the dark, cruel places.

Psalm 74:20

Have respect unto the covenant: for the dark places of the earth are full of the habitations of cruelty.

While the old testament does not specifically mention a hell full of demons and devils, the “dark places” are mentioned, and what is there is “cruel.”

The dark places are not just caves, or holes in the ground.

There is something in them that are cruel.

Then there is the spiritual level.

Not keeping the covenant with God can keep us in spiritual dark places.

Demons do not just live in dark places inside the earth.

They roam the earth, afflicting those who have an open door, due to sin, personal injury, family curses, ignorance of spiritual things, etc.

No one has to wait for the end of life to experience the affliction of demon oppression, or possession.

So hell on earth can precede hell in the afterlife, unless one gets deliverance.

Strong powers are there in this life to victimize people who are unaware.

While many decide to abandon the “law” (term used by gentiles) / Torah covenant, there is definitely some advantages to keeping it.

The “law,” or really the Torah, is really guidance for our own protection.

It is the first 5 books of the Bible, and the Word of God.


While the sacrifice of Jesus / Yeshua abolished the ritual offering for sins, many aspects of what the gentiles call the “law” (Torah/ Word of God) are still in effect, like the 10 commandments, and some others.

And while grace is abundant, disobedience still has its consequences.

So, one can choose to observe the covenant.

Obedience establishes a hedge of protection around us.

And one can choose to abandon obedience to the Torah.

This takes down the hedge.

Disobedience opens the door to the dark places of cruelty.


The dark places are all around us on the earth, and waiting for us in the next life, if we choose to ignore the covenant and Word of God.

Think carefully about your choices.

  2. The places above the earth are in other dimensions, and there are places under the earth as well.Obviously Hell has different levels, none of which would be very nice to experience, but all have an absence of the attributes of God, which are manifold!…When thinking of Hell, we may well think of God’s opposites to get a better picture!…The domain of UFO’s for example is above the Earth, but in another dimension.They have the ability to move into our dimension at will…There is much one could write on this subject, that’s for sure!

  3. Yes, Darkness abounds where sin exist and hell has its way. shalom.

  4. It took me 3 minutes to read this, yet an hour later, i’m still thinking about it. Profound.

      thank you for reading this…I am still thinking about it too….there are so many hints in the bible about really deep subjects, and most of the time, we skim right over them and miss them….we should all stop and read more slowly, and get the answers we are looking for

  5. Thank you Marianne…. I enjoyed reading this. On another note, I’d bet corrupt people, especially terrorists, lawyers, judges and politicians (to name a few) end up in the lowest regions of Hell where they belong.

  6. I have always believed that hell, for me, is the absence of the presence of God, (my being separate from Him) whether here on earth in the now, or the after life.

    The sad part is that I have withdrawn from attending any “church” and withdrawn from participation / volunteering at various places as the politics and corruption is out of hand.

  7. The Holy Spirit at dawn reminded me that there is only one choice and all choices are from that…willing obedience to the Father and enjoying His loving presence…or refusal and pride…the ” I do what I want” of the wide path to destruction.
    It’s scary. It’s not just bad people who break faith with God. It’s an ongoing choice for all of us in our heart’s resolve.
    I’ve noticed that when I promise something to God, often a “small” thing, I suffer if I make excuses or let someone talk me out of it. Keep faith with people, including those gone ahead to the next world…be a person of your word.

  8. Revelation 6:16 continues to say “… and said to the mountains and rocks, “Fall on us and hide us from the face of Him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb!”

    How long will it take those in their doomsday bunkers to feel as if they are in a prison instead of a refuge? Without God, probably not very long.

  12. Many are confused about UFO’S. . .UFO’S have been created by a dark side of our government AND ARE BEING USED TO SPREAD MISINFORMATION. . .AND THEY WILL BE USED FOR AN UP-COMING FALSE FLAG TO SUBJUGATE AND HARM MANY PEOPLE !
    The idea of aliens is an idea. . . that our real future depends on extraterrestrials for human advancement. . .they can also be used as another terrorist for our destruction. The latter is the more immediate serious concern. . . which will be the false flag.
    Aliens /extraterrestrials themselves are also mixed up or even joined to angels and demons which might be in many cases an opposition to our very spiritual foundation. In any case, the above video discloses the many devious factions dedicated to our hurt.

  13. Very good post and information!!
