Destruction (2 Pt 2:12) which Mr. Maas mentioned, and I’ll add Mt 7:13; Ro 9:222

Perishing Jn 3:16; 2 Pe 2:12. Excellent reference of Mr. Maas here (2 Peter 3:9)
(2 Peter 2:12 says they will be both destroyed and perish. NIV has perish)

Being in fire Lk 16:22-24 (Mr. Maas mentioned Lk 16:24); I add Heb 10:27

Being in darkness Mt 25:30; (Mr. Maas has Mt 25:30) and I add 2Pe 2:17
