Jesus *said, “Remove the stone.” Martha, the sister of the deceased, *said to Him, “Lord, by this time there will be a stench, for he has been dead four days.”
So when Jesus came, He found that he had already been in the tomb four days.
By the sweat of your face
You will eat bread,
Till you return to the ground,
Because from it you were taken;
For you are dust,
And to dust you shall return.”
“I am a stranger and a sojourner among you; give me a burial site among you that I may bury my dead out of my sight.”
No man can by any means redeem his brother
Or give to God a ransom for him—
That he should live on eternally,
That he should not undergo decay.
As sheep they are appointed for Sheol;
Death shall be their shepherd;
And the upright shall rule over them in the morning,
And their form shall be for Sheol to consume
So that they have no habitation.
They were saying to one another, “Who will roll away the stone for us from the entrance of the tomb?”
Because You will not abandon my soul to Hades,
Nor allow Your Holy One to undergo decay.
For David, after he had served the purpose of God in his own generation, fell asleep, and was laid among his fathers and underwent decay;
who will transform the body of our humble state into conformity with the body of His glory, by the exertion of the power that He has even to subject all things to Himself.
