So the question is whether thick darkness could be like a black hole. Some of the quotes seem to not possibly be. But others make you wonder.

One quote has god sitting on the thick darkness. So it appears to be an envoronment, rather than a being. Something you can go into, and come out of by another quote. So it's not quite a black hole. Rather something that can still swallow up light.

Does the idea of Dark Matter ring a bell? Actually thick darkness reminds me of Nirvana.

[22] So Moses stretched out his hand toward heaven, and there was thick darkness in all the land of Egypt three days;
[21] And the people stood afar off, while Moses drew near to the thick darkness where God was.

thick darkness was under his feet.

[6] That night -- let thick darkness seize it!
let it not rejoice among the days of the year,
let it not come into the number of the months.

[17] for I am hemmed in by darkness,
and thick darkness covers my face.

and thick darkness its swaddling band,

thick darkness was under his feet.

[2] Clouds and thick darkness are round about him;

[22] and they will look to the earth, but behold, distress and darkness, the gloom of anguish; and they will be thrust into thick darkness.
[2] For behold, darkness shall cover the earth,
and thick darkness the peoples;
but the LORD will arise upon you,
and his glory will be seen upon you.

[31] And you, O generation, heed the word of the LORD.
Have I been a wilderness to Israel,
or a land of thick darkness?
Why then do my people say, `We are free,
we will come no more to thee'?

[12] As a shepherd seeks out his flock when some of his sheep have been scattered abroad, so will I seek out my sheep; and I will rescue them from all places where they have been scattered on a day of clouds and thick darkness.
[2] a day of darkness and gloom,
a day of clouds and thick darkness!
Like blackness there is spread upon the mountains
a great and powerful people;
their like has never been from of old,
nor will be again after them
through the years of all generations.

[15] A day of wrath is that day,
a day of distress and anguish,
a day of ruin and devastation,
a day of darkness and gloom,
a day of clouds and thick darkness,

[5] He made him hear his voice,
and led him into the thick darkness,
and gave him the commandments face to face,
the law of life and knowledge,
to teach Jacob the covenant,
and Israel his judgments.
