King James Bible

Darby Bible Translation

His spirit departs, and he returns to the earth. In that very day, his thoughts perish.

When you hide your face, they are terrified; when you take away their breath, they die and return to the dust.
and the dust returns to the ground it came from, and the spirit returns to God who gave it.
