Recap of Sheol in Genesis

All 4 times that Sheol is used in Genesis was in the context of a comment by Jacob/Israel who understood it simply to be a place of interrment upon death. No context of burning, fire, cold, wet, dry, or even consciousness or awareness was stated or implied at this point.

Now, Moses wrote the book of Genesis, which took place prior to his birth.
Next, we will look at the remainder of the mentions of Sheol in the Pentateuch (which is simply the five books of Moses - Genesis, Exodus, Numbers, Leviticus, and Deuteronomy).
