Numbers 17:12  (King James Version)
And the children of Israel spake unto Moses, saying, Behold, we die, we perish, we all perish.

26:11 Psalms 90:7 ; Proverbs 19:3 ; Isaiah 57:16 ; Hebrews 12:5

we die
{Gawanoo,} "we expire:" it signifies not so much to die simply, as to feel an extreme difficulty in breathing, which producing suffocation, ends at last in death. See the folly and extravagance of this sinful people, in thus rebelling against the authority of those whom Jehovah had appointed to be their rulers.
