Let me not be ashamed, LORD, for I have called upon you. Let the wicked be put to shame, let them be silent in the next life.
And with whom was he angry for 40 years? Was it not with those who sinned and whose bodies fell dead in the wilderness?
1 Corinthians 10:5
But God wasn't pleased with most of those people, and so they were struck down in the wilderness.
As drought and heat evaporate melting snow, that's what Sheol does with sinners.
Her house leads to Sheol, descending to death's catacombs.
But he does not realize that the dead lurk there, and her invited guests wind up in the depths of Sheol.
None who go to her return, nor do they reach the paths of life.
For her house leads down to death, and her paths down to the realm of the dead.
Her feet go down to death; her steps lead to Sheol.
1 Timothy 5:6
But the self-indulgent widow is just as good as dead.
"Our father died in the wilderness, but he wasn't with the company of those who gathered against the LORD along with the company of Korah. He died in his own sin, and he had no sons.
1 Corinthians 11:30
That's why so many of you are weak and sick and a considerable number are dying.
