Does the Judgment of Angels happen in Rev 20:13?

    Does "SEA" in Rev 20:13 imply this event includes the judgment of Satan's Angels in Tartarus?

    Death and Hades are mentioned as places for the dead, so is "the sea." However "Death" renders the appearance of both "Hades" and "the Sea" redundant.

    So is this purposeful, meant to imply with the judgment of all dead mankind, the angels in TARTARUS also rise?

    The sea gave up the dead who were in it, and Death and Hades delivered up the dead who were in them. And they were judged, each one according to his works. (Rev 20:13 NKJ)

    Compare the "Sea":

    13 And at once Jesus gave them permission. Then the unclean spirits went out and entered the swine (there were about two thousand); and the herd ran violently down the steep place into the sea, and drowned in the sea. (Mar 5:13 NKJ)

    "Abyss" and "Lake":

    31 And they begged Him that He would not command them to go out into the abyss.
    32 Now a herd of many swine was feeding there on the mountain. So they begged Him that He would permit them to enter them. And He permitted them.
    33 Then the demons went out of the man and entered the swine, and the herd ran violently down the steep place into the lake and drowned.
    (Luk 8:31-33 NKJ)

    Legion being imprisoned in unclean swine flesh and compelled to run violently into the Lake clearly prefigures Judgment Day when the wicked are raised up in contemptible-abominable resurrection bodies and cast into the lake of fire. Rev 20:13-15; Dan 12:2; Isa 66:24; John 5:28-29.

    It would naturally imply they are judged at the same time, in the same manner, imprisoned in contemptible bodies, and then cast into the lake of fire.

    That angels are judged on Judgment Day is clearly affirmed:

    For if God did not spare the angels who sinned, but cast them down to hell(TARTARUS) and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved for judgment; (2Pe 2:4 NKJ)

    And the angels who did not keep their proper domain, but left their own abode, He has reserved in everlasting chains under darkness for the judgment of the great day; (Jud 1:6 NKJ)

    What say you?
