All go to one place; all are of the dust, and all turn to dust again.
When You hide Your face, they are troubled and dismayed; when You take away their breath, they die and return to their dust.
You turn man back to dust and corruption, and say, Return, O sons of the earthborn [to the earth]!
If [God] should set His heart upon him [man] and withdraw His [life-giving] spirit and His breath [from man] to Himself, All flesh would perish together, and man would turn again to dust.
Remember [earnestly], I beseech You, that You have fashioned me as clay [out of the same earth material, exquisitely and elaborately]. And will You bring me into dust again?
[God] has cast me into the mire, and I have become like dust and ashes.
But the multitude of your [enemy] strangers that assail you shall be like small dust, and the multitude of the ruthless and terrible ones like chaff that blows away. And in an instant, suddenly,
[My hope] shall go down to the bars of Sheol (the unseen state) when once there is rest in the dust.
What profit is there in my blood, when I go down to the pit (the grave)? Will the dust praise You? Will it declare Your truth and faithfulness to men?
[Bury and] hide them all in the dust together; [and] shut them up [in the prison house of death].
My strength is dried up like a fragment of clay pottery; [with thirst] my tongue cleaves to my jaws; and You have brought me into the dust of death.
Your dead shall live [O Lord]; the bodies of our dead [saints] shall rise. You who dwell in the dust, awake and sing for joy! For Your dew [O Lord] is a dew of [sparkling] light [heavenly, supernatural dew]; and the earth shall cast forth the dead [to life again; for on the land of the shades of the dead You will let Your dew fall].
Then shall the dust [out of which God made man's body] return to the earth as it was, and the spirit shall return to God Who gave it.
