I think the Bible is as clear as it is morally corrupt on this subject.
Consider Revelation 20:10

" And the devil, who deceived them, was thrown into the lake of burning
sulfur, where the beast and the false prophet had been thrown. They will be
tormented day and night for ever and ever."

Or Mark 3:29:

"he that shall blaspheme against the Holy Ghost hath never forgiveness, but
is in danger of eternal damnation".

Or this quotation from Jesus in Matthew 25:41:

"Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the
devil and his angels."

Or Mark 9:43

"And if thy hand offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter
into life maimed, than having two hands to go into hell, into the fire that
never shall be quenched"
