Occurrences in the NT: 2

κόλασις, -εως, ἡ,
(< κολάζω), [in LXX: Ez 14:3-7 18:30 44:12, (מִכְשׁוֹל) 43:11, λαμβάνειν τὴν κ. (כּלם ni.); Wi 11:13 16:2, 24 19:4, Je 18:20, II-IV Mac5*;]
correction, penalty, punishment: Mt 25:46, I Jn 4:18.†
SYN.: τιμωρία, requital. Arist. distinguishes between κ. as that which, being disciplinary, has reference to the sufferer, and τ. as that which, being penal, has reference to the satisfaction of him who inflicts (v. Thayer, s.v. κ., and cf. Tr., Syn., § vii). But in late Gk. especially, the distinction is not always maintained (v. reff. in Thayer).
