Let the enemy persecute my soul, and take it; yea, let him tread down my life upon the earth, and lay mine honour in the dust. Selah.
Then did I beat them small as the dust before the wind: I did cast them out as the dirt in the streets.
My strength is dried up like a potsherd; and my tongue cleaveth to my jaws; and thou hast brought me into the dust of death.
All they that be fat upon earth shall eat and worship : all they that go down to the dust shall bow before him: and none can keep alive his own soul.
What profit is there in my blood, when I go down to the pit? Shall the dust praise thee? shall it declare thy truth?
For our soul is bowed down to the dust: our belly cleaveth unto the earth.
He rained flesh also upon them as dust, and feathered fowls like as the sand of the sea:
For thy servants take pleasure in her stones, and favour the dust thereof.
He raiseth up the poor out of the dust, and lifteth the needy out of the dunghill;
DALETH. My soul cleaveth unto the dust: quicken thou me according to thy word.
