'Wax' in the Bible
I am poured out like water. All my bones are out of joint. My heart is like wax; it is melted within me.
As smoke is driven away, so drive them away. As wax melts before the fire, so let the wicked perish at the presence of God.
The mountains melt like wax at the presence of Yahweh, at the presence of the Lord of the whole earth.
Behold, the Lord Yahweh will help me; who is he who shall condemn me? Behold, all they shall wax old as a garment, the moth shall eat them up.
Lift up your eyes to the heavens, and look on the earth beneath; for the heavens shall vanish away like smoke, and the earth shall wax old like a garment; and those who dwell therein shall die in the same way: but my salvation shall be forever, and my righteousness shall not be abolished.
We have heard its report; our hands wax feeble: anguish has taken hold of us, [and] pangs as of a woman in travail.
The king of Babylon has heard the news of them, and his hands wax feeble: anguish has taken hold of him, [and] pangs as of a woman in travail.
