4For if God messengers who sinned did not spare, but with chains of thick gloom, having cast [them] down to Tartarus, did deliver [them] to judgment, having been reserved,

"having cast down to Tartarus" is translated from just one word.

ταρταρόω
tartaroō
Thayer Definition:
1) the name of the subterranean region, doleful and dark, regarded by the ancient Greeks as the abode of the wicked dead, where they suffer punishment for their evil deeds; it answers to Gehenna of the Jews
2) to thrust down to Tartarus, to hold captive in Tartarus
Part of Speech: verb
A Related Word by Thayer's/Strong's Number: from Tartaros (the deepest abyss of Hell)

What is interesting about this
word is that Tartaroo is a verb meaning, "to cast down," yet it's used in 2
Peter as a noun (a place called "hell"). An accurate translation should read,
"but cast them down and committed them to pits…"
