What is bitter than death - Bible describes

Pain is a distressing feeling often caused by intense or damaging stimuli.


The International Association for the Study of Pain defines pain as an unpleasant sensory and emotional experience associated with, or resembling that associated with, actual or potential tissue damage

.In medical diagnosis, pain is regarded as a symptom of an underlying condition.

for the majority of christian denominations, the holy spirit, or holy ghost, is believed to be the third person of the trinity,a triune god manifested as god the father, god the son, and god the holy spirit, each entity itself being god.

nontrinitarian christians, who reject the doctrine of the trinity, differ significantly from mainstream christianity in their beliefs about the holy spirit. in christian theology, pneumatology refers to the study of the holy spirit.

Due to christianity's historical relationship with judaism, theologians often identify the holy spirit with the concept of the ruach hakodesh in jewish scripture, on the theory that jesus (who was jewish) was expanding upon these jewish concepts. similar names, and ideas, include the ruach elohim (spirit of god), ruach yhwh (spirit of yahweh), and the ruach hakodes in the new testament it is identified with the spirit of christ, the spirit of truth, the paraclete and the holy spirit.

According to ecclesiastes 7:26

I discovered that a seductive woman is a trap more bitter than death. Her passion is a snare, and her soft hands are chains. Those who are pleasing to God will escape her, but sinners will be caught in her snare.
