4442 pýrfire. In Scripture, fire is often used figuratively – like with the "fire of God" which transforms all it touches into light and likeness with itself

God's Spirit, like a holy fire, enlightens and purifies so that believers can share more and more in His likeness. Indeed the fire of God brings the uninterrupted privilege of being transformed which happens by experiencing faith from Him. Our lives can become true offerings to Him as we obey this imparted faith from God by His power.

[This is illustrated by God's fire burning continuously at the entrance of the Tabernacle where the priests made sweet-savor offerings. Compare Lev 6:12,13 with 1 Pet 2:5,9.]

Amos 4:11. of the fire of hell we find the following expressions — which are to be taken either tropically (of the extreme penal torments which the wicked are to undergo after their life on earth; so in the discourses of Jesus), or literally (so apparently in the Apocalypse): τό πῦρ, Mark 9:44, 46,(T WH omit; Tr brackets both verses),48; τό πῦρ τό αἰώνιον, Matthew 18:8; Matthew 25:41, cf. 4 Macc. 12:12; ἄσβεστον, Mark 9:43, 45 (G T Tr WH omit; L brackets the clause); πυρός αἰωνίου δίκην ὑπέχειν, Jude 1:7; γηννα τοῦ πυρός, Matthew 5:22; Matthew 18:9; Mark 9:47 (R G Tr brackets); κάμινος τοῦ πυρός, Matthew 13:42, 50 (Daniel 3:6); λίμνη τοῦ πυρός, Revelation 19:20; Revelation 20:10, 14, 15; πυρί τηρεῖσθαι, 2 Peter 3:7; βασανισθῆναι ἐν πυρί, Revelation 14:10 (cf. Luke 16:24); βαπτίζειν τινα πυρί (see βαπτίζω, II.

b. bb.), Matthew 3:11; Luke 3:16. the tongue is called πῦρ, as though both itself on fire and setting other things on fire, partly by reason of the fiery spirit which governs it, partly by reason of the destructive power it exercises, James 3:6; since fire disorganizes and sunders things joined together and compact, it is used to symbolize dissension, Luke 12:49. Metaphorical expressions: ἐκ πυρός ἁρπάζειν, to snatch from danger of destruction, Jude 1:23; πυρί ἁλίζεσθαι (see ἁλίζω), Mark 9:49; ζῆλος πυρός, fiery, burning anger (see ζῆλος, 1), Hebrews 10:27 (πῦρ ζήλου, Zephaniah 1:18; Zephaniah 3:8); God is called πῦρ καταναλίσκον, as one who when angry visits the obdurate with penal destruction, Hebrews 12:29.
