You will eat bread by the sweat of your brow until you return to the ground, since you were taken from it. For you are dust, and you will return to dust."
For we will certainly die and be like water poured out on the ground, which can't be recovered. But God would not take away a life; He would devise plans so that the one banished from Him does not remain banished.
Since man's days are determined and the number of his months depends on You, and [since] You have set limits he cannot pass,
Yes, I know that You will lead me to death-- the place appointed for all who live.
What man can live and never see death? Who can save himself from the power of Sheol? Selah
All are going to the same place; all come from dust, and all return to dust.
For the living know that they will die, but the dead don't know anything. There is no longer a reward for them because the memory of them is forgotten.
Whatever your hands find to do, do with [all] your strength, because there is no work, planning, knowledge, or wisdom in Sheol where you are going.
and the dust returns to the earth as it once was, and the spirit returns to God who gave it.
Therefore, just as sin entered the world through one man, and death through sin, in this way death spread to all men, because all sinned.

But I know my living Redeemer, and He will stand on the dust at last.
Rejoice, young man, while you are young, and let your heart be glad in the days of your youth. And walk in the ways of your heart and in the sights of your eyes; but know that for all of these things God will bring you to judgment.
For God will bring every act to judgment, including every hidden thing, whether good or evil.
"When the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the angels with Him, then He will sit on the throne of His glory.
All the nations will be gathered before Him, and He will separate them one from another, just as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats.
He will put the sheep on His right, and the goats on the left.
Then the King will say to those on His right, 'Come, you who are blessed by My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world.
For I was hungry and you gave Me something to eat; I was thirsty and you gave Me something to drink; I was a stranger and you took Me in;
I was naked and you clothed Me; I was sick and you took care of Me; I was in prison and you visited Me.'
"Then the righteous will answer Him, 'Lord, when did we see You hungry and feed You, or thirsty and give You something to drink?
When did we see You a stranger and take You in, or without clothes and clothe You?
When did we see You sick, or in prison, and visit You?'
"And the King will answer them, 'I assure you: Whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of Mine, you did for Me.'
Then He will also say to those on the left, 'Depart from Me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the Devil and his angels!
For I was hungry and you gave Me nothing to eat; I was thirsty and you gave Me nothing to drink;
I was a stranger and you didn't take Me in; I was naked and you didn't clothe Me, sick and in prison and you didn't take care of Me.'
"Then they too will answer, 'Lord, when did we see You hungry, or thirsty, or a stranger, or without clothes, or sick, or in prison, and not help You?'
"Then He will answer them, 'I assure you: Whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for Me either.'
"And they will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life."
For just as the Father has life in Himself, so also He has granted to the Son to have life in Himself.
And He has granted Him the right to pass judgment, because He is the Son of Man.
Do not be amazed at this, because a time is coming when all who are in the graves will hear His voice
and come out-- those who have done good things, to the resurrection of life, but those who have done wicked things, to the resurrection of judgment.
because He has set a day on which He is going to judge the world in righteousness by the Man He has appointed. He has provided proof of this to everyone by raising Him from the dead."
But because of your hardness and unrepentant heart you are storing up wrath for yourself in the day of wrath, when God's righteous judgment is revealed.
Christ died and came to life for this: that He might rule over both the dead and the living.
But you, why do you criticize your brother? Or you, why do you look down on your brother? For we will all stand before the judgment seat of God.
For it is written: As I live, says the Lord, every knee will bow to Me, and every tongue will give praise to God.
So then, each of us will give an account of himself to God.
Therefore don't judge anything prematurely, before the Lord comes, who will both bring to light what is hidden in darkness and reveal the intentions of the hearts. And then praise will come to each one from God.
For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each may be repaid for what he has done in the body, whether good or bad.
Before God and Christ Jesus, who is going to judge the living and the dead, and by His appearing and His kingdom, I solemnly charge you:
to execute judgment on all, and to convict them of all their ungodly deeds that they have done in an ungodly way, and of all the harsh things ungodly sinners have said against Him.
