Proverbs 15:11 - God's Omniscience
Not even the world of the dead can keep the LORD from knowing what is there; how then can we hide our thoughts from God?

This bible verse has been derived from [Good News Translation](https://biblehub.com/gnt/proverbs/15.htm) 

If you can take a closer look at Proverbs chapter 15 from verse 10 to 12, and take a bible study you will understand verse 11 better which talks more about: 

>(11) **Hell and destruction.**--"Hell" is here the general name for the unseen world (Hades) beyond the grave, so called, according to one derivation, from its always "asking" for more victims, and never being satisfied. (Comp. [Proverbs 27:20.](https://biblehub.com/proverbs/27-20.htm)) "Destruction" (Abaddon) is the lowest hell, corresponding to the "abyss" of [Luke 8:31;](https://biblehub.com/luke/8-31.htm) [Revelation 9:1;](https://biblehub.com/revelation/9-1.htm) [Revelation 9:11;](https://biblehub.com/revelation/9-11.htm) the abode of evil spirits and the lost. (For the thought, comp. [Job 26:6,](https://biblehub.com/job/26-6.htm) and [Psalm 139:8.](https://biblehub.com/psalms/139-8.htm))

- Ellicott's commentary 

>Verse 11. - Hell and destruction are before the Lord. The two words rendered "hell" and "destruction" are respectively Sheol and Abaddon, Infernus and Perditio,  (comp. [Proverbs 27:20](https://biblehub.com/proverbs/27-20.htm)). The former is used generally as the place to which the souls of the dead are consigned - the receptacle of all departed spirits, whether good or bad. Abaddon is the lowest depth of hell, the "abyss" of [Luke 8:31;](https://biblehub.com/luke/8-31.htm) [Revelation 9:2,](https://biblehub.com/revelation/9-1.htm) [Revelation 20:l,](https://biblehub.com/revelation/20-1.htm) etc. The clause means that God's eye penetrates even the most secret corners of the unseen world. As Job ([Job 26:6](https://biblehub.com/job/26-6.htm)) says, "Sheol is naked before him, and Abaddon hath no covering" (comp. [Psalm 139:7](https://biblehub.com/psalms/139-7.htm), etc.). How much more then the hearts of the children of men? (For the form of the expression, comp. [Proverbs 11:31](https://biblehub.com/proverbs/11-31.htm) and [Proverbs 19:7;](https://biblehub.com/proverbs/19-7.htm) and for the import, [Proverbs 16:2;](https://biblehub.com/proverbs/16-2.htm) [Proverbs 21:2;](https://biblehub.com/proverbs/21-2.htm) [Jeremiah 17:10.](https://biblehub.com/jeremiah/17-10.htm) If God knows the secrets of the world beyond the grave, much more does he know the secret thoughts of men on earth. The heart is the source of action (see [Matthew 15:19,](https://biblehub.com/matthew/15-19.htm) etc.).

- Pulpit commentary 

>***…10 Discipline is harsh for him who leaves the path; he who hates correction will die. 11 [Sheol and Abaddon lie open before the LORDβ€” how much more the hearts of men!](https://biblehub.com/hebrew/3826.htm) 12 A mocker does not love to be reproved, nor will he consult the wise.…***

- [Berean Study Bible](https://berean.bible/)

***The moral lesson of this Bible verse is:*** 

>**If the LORD can see everything in the world of the dead, he can see in our hearts.**

The lesson in the Bible verse has been obtained from: [Treasury Of Scripture](https://biblehub.com/proverbs/15-11.htm)
