Sheol refers to the spiritual underworld of the dead where the wicked were punished; or the common grave; that is, the ground of the Earth where our physical bodies are buried and eventually decay, or corrupt, into the original elements of which they consist. Here is an example where 'sheol' is used in the Old Testament.

Psalms 16:10, KJV For more info on this topic, please read the article 'Hell And The Lake Of Fire'.
