go to hell

Save This Word!

Also, go to the devil or dickens. Go to everlasting torment, ruin, or perdition. For example, Nancy did not mince words but simply told him to go the devil, or Go to hell, Tom, I won't give you another cent. These phrases are often uttered as angry imperatives to order someone to go away. Hell, devil, and dickens (a euphemism for “devil”) all refer to the underworld, the residence of the devil, from which a person would never return.
