Ecclesiastes 3:20-21; Ecclesiastes 12:7; Psalm 104:29; Psalm 146:4; James 2:26

20 All go to one place. All are from pthe dust, and to dust all return. 21 Who knows whether qthe spirit of man goes upward and the spirit of the beast goes down into the earth?

and jthe dust returns to the earth as it was, and kthe spirit returns to God lwho gave it.

29  When you ehide your face, they are fdismayed;

when you gtake away their breath, they die

and hreturn to their dust.

When this breath departs, he returns to the earth;

on that very day his plans perish.

26 For as the body apart from the spirit is dead, so also faith apart from works is dead.
