In paragraph 2, it states that “They are now the objects of that very same anger and wrath of God, which is expressed in the torments of hell”. It also states that “Is not at present very angry with them as he is with many miserable creatures now tormented in hell”.

No human is safe from the temptation of sin, or the judgement of God. When asked for one final time, as Mr. Hooper lay on his deathbed, why he wore the veil for so long, Mr. Hooper replies that he sees a black veil on everyone’s face. He believes that everyone lives their lives in a state of sin, and that the veil is a vain attempt to hide sins from each other. By physically representing this belief onto his own face, Mr. Hooper became a powerful figure within the community. The veil struck fear into the congregation, with people’s own sins being reflected onto him.
He finally discovers that his refusal to see past his own opinion is his downfall. He punished Antigone and mocked those who questioned his law, including his trusted prophet, Teiresias. The prophet clearly warned him, “You shall pay back corpse for corpse, flesh of your own flesh.” (scene 5 line 77-80). He would pay for his crime against the laws of the gods. “The one in the grave before her death, the other, dead, denied the grave.

The oder and and sight of the living conditions of these peoples were an abomination.The book night talks about these topics and Wiesel writes and thinks about the death and disappearance of God and his own increasing disgusted with humanity, reflected in the overturn of the parent-child relationship, as his father drops to a helpless state Wiesel becomes his annoyed teenage caregiver. "If only I could get rid of this dead weight ... Immediately I felt ashamed of myself, ashamed forever." In Night everything is reversed, every value destroyed. "Here there are no fathers, no brothers, no friends," a kapo tells him.
To prove that he is speaking the truth about the deaths, Dante asks to see “the traitor, who sees only with one eye / and rules the land that someone...wishes he’d never fed his eyes upon.” At this request, Medicina brings a man by the name of Curio over. He also brings Mosca over. Curio has no tongue, as it is “hacked off as far down as the throat,” and Mosca suffers from the loss of his hands. Medicina asks Dante to remember him upon his return to earth. It is revealed that Mosca suffers the torments that surround him because he “was the cause of the division of Florence into the feuding Guelph and Ghibelline parties.” Because he caused this massive war that resulted in a huge separation and intense pain and suffering, misery in Hell befalls him.
In Genesis 3, Adam and Eve faced the consequence they had when betraying God. In the Bible, it states “So He drove out the man;...”, and ““I will greatly multiply your sorrow and your conception;In pain you shall bring forth children;” Eve consequence was to bring children into the world with pain, also being kicked out the garden of Eden with Adam.
