Before i wondered – why Eternal suffering? Is that correct? Now i understand. The people in Noah’s day who were continually evil were therefore eternally evil. Thus, being eternally evil, they receive Eternal Fire. Even if you took them out of the Eternal Fire, they would still be evil, because they are eternally evil. The fire helps separate the wheat from the chaff, as John the Baptist tells us.
St. Matthew Chapter 3
11 I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance:
but he that cometh after me is mightier than I,
whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall
baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with fire:
12 Whose fan is in his hand, and he will throughly
purge his floor, and gather his wheat into the garner;
but he will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire.
