Modern versions omitted Mark 9:44, 46, 48 -- "Where THEIR WORM dieth not, and the fire is not quenched." However the KJV has these passages. Also Isaiah 66:24. Please use expository explanation on what a word, "worm" defines on these passages. Does this word, "worm" refer to a damned soul or an eternal worm. If it is eternal worm, what is it? Figurative? If so, what is it?
