For our soul is bowed down to the dust.
Our body clings to the earth. Bible see other translations

“Our body clings to the earth.” Defeat, frustration, and humiliation have often been expressed by idioms having to do with being on the ground. God told the Devil he would “crawl on his belly,” (Gen. 3:14), and true to the curse, the Devil has been defeated and humiliated ever since.
