Section #16: How the Apostle Peter Translated the Hebrew word SHEOL
Hell Stats Page

It appears that the Greek word HADES was considered by Luke, the author of Acts, and the Apostle Peter to be the same as the Hebrew word SHEOL. HADES appears in Acts 2:25-28 were Luke writes about Peter making reference to Psalm 16:8-11 which uses the word SHEOL.

Ps 16:8-11 I have set the LORD always before me: because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved. 9 Therefore my  heart  is  glad, and  my  glory rejoiceth: my flesh also shall rest in hope. 10 For thou wilt not leave my soul in hell (Sheol - 7585); neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption. 11 Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.

Acts 2:25-28 For David speaketh concerning him, I foresaw the Lord always before my face, for he is on my right hand, that I should not be moved: 26 Therefore did my heart rejoice, and my tongue was glad; moreover also my flesh shall rest in hope: 27 Because thou wilt not leave my soul in hell (Hades - 86), neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption. 28 Thou hast made known to me the ways of life; thou shalt make me full of joy with thy countenance.
