Christian Uses

Some Japanese Christian texts use 黄泉 to refer to what is called Hell in the English versions. For example Revelation 6:8,

そこで見ていると、見よ、青白い馬が出てきた。そして、それに乗っている者の名は「死」と言い、それに黄泉が従っていた

in English: And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him.
