You hide your face,
they are terrified;
you take away their breath:
they die and they return to the dust. Bible see other translations

“breath.” The Hebrew is ruach, “spirit,” here used of the animal life of the body.

“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”).
