I, even I, am bringing a flood of water on this earth to destroy from under the heavens all flesh in which is the breath of life. Everything that is on the earth will die. Bible other translations

“die.” The Hebrew verb gava (#01478 גָּוַע) refers to dying and is fundamentally synonymous with the verb “die” muth (#04191 מָוֹת), although it can infer a violent death (see commentary on Gen. 25:8, “breathed his last”).
