Dust

Joshua 7:6. Dust or ashes put upon the head was a sign of mourning; sitting in the dust, a sign of affliction, La 3:29 Isaiah 47:1. "Dust" is also put for the grave, Genesis 3:19 Job 7:21. It signifies a multitude, Genesis 13:16, and a low and mean condition, 1 Samuel 2:8. We have two remarkable instances of casting dust recorded in Scripture, and they seem to illustrate a practice common in Asia: those who demanded justice against a criminal were accustomed to throw dust upon him, signifying that he deserved to be cast into the grave. Shimei cast dust upon David when he fled from Jerusalem, 2 Samuel 16:13. The Jews treated the apostle Paul in a similar manner in the same city: "They cried out, ?Away with such a fellow from the earth; for it is not fit that he should live.- And as they cried out, and cast off their clothes, and threw dust into the air, the chief captain commanded him to be brought into the castle," Acts 22:22-24. To shake off the dust of the feet against another was expressive of entire renunciation, Matthew 10:14 Mark 6:11 Acts 13:51. The threatening of God, recorded in De 28:24, "The Lord shall make the rain of thy land powder and dust: from heaven shall it come down upon thee, until thou be destroyed," means that instead of fertilizing rains, clouds of fine dust, raised from the parched ground and driven by fierce and burning winds, shall fill the air. Of such a rain of dust, famine and disease would be the natural attendants. See WIND.

Easton's Bible Dictionary
Storms of sand and dust sometimes overtake Eastern travellers. They are very dreadful, many perishing under them. Jehovah threatens to bring on the land of Israel, as a punishment for forsaking him, a rain of "powder and dust" (Deuteronomy 28:24).

To cast dust on the head was a sign of mourning (Joshua 7:6); and to sit in dust, of extreme affliction (Isaiah 47:1). "Dust" is used to denote the grave (Job 7:21). "To shake off the dust from one's feet" against another is to renounce all future intercourse with him (Matthew 10:14; Acts 13:51). To "lick the dust" is a sign of abject submission (Psalm 72:9); and to throw dust at one is a sign of abhorrence (2 Samuel 16:13; Comp. Acts 22:23).

DUST

dust (`aphar; koniortos, chous): Small particles of earth. The word has several figurative and symbolic meanings:

(1) Dust being the material out of which God is said to have formed man (Genesis 2:7), it became a symbol of man's frailty (Psalm 103:14, "For he knoweth our frame; he remembereth that we are dust"; compare Genesis 18:27 Job 4:19, etc.), and of his mortality (Genesis 3:19, "Dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return"; compare Job 34:15 Psalm 104:29 Ecclesiastes 3:20; Ecclesiastes 12:7, etc.) Hence, it is used figuratively for the grave (Psalm 22:15, 29; Psalm 30:9 Daniel 12:2).

(2) Such actions as to lie in the dust, to lick the dust, to sprinkle dust on the head, are symbols expressive of deep humiliation, abasement or lamentation (e.g. Job 2:12; Job 42:6, Psalm 72:9 Isaiah 2:10; Isaiah 47:1; Isaiah 49:23 Lamentations 2:10; Lamentations 3:29 Ezekiel 27:30; Micah 7:17 Revelation 18:19). Hence, such expressions as "He raiseth up the poor out of the dust," i.e. out of their state of lowliness (1 Samuel 2:8 Psalm 113:7).

(3) Throwing dust was an act expressive of execration. Thus, Shimei "cursed" David and "threw stones at him, and cast dust," literally, "dusted (him) with dust" (2 Samuel 16:13). So the crowd which Paul addressed at Jerusalem manifested their wrath against him by tossing about their garments and casting dust into the air (Acts 22:23).

(4) Shaking the dust off one's feet against anyone (Matthew 10:14 Mark 6:11 Luke 9:5; Luke 10:11 Acts 13:51) is symbolic of renunciation, as we would say "washing one's hands of him," an intimation that all further intercourse was at an end. It was practiced by the Pharisees on passing from Gentileto Jewish soil, it being a rabbinical doctrine that the dust of a heathen land defiles.

(5) It is also used figuratively for an innumerable multitude (e.g. Genesis 13:16; Genesis 28:14 Job 27:16 Psalm 78:27).

(6) The expression "Yahweh will make the rain of thy land powder and dust" (Deuteronomy 28:24) means the dust in consequence of the drought shall fall down instead of rain on the dry ground. In Judea and vicinity during a sirocco, the air becomes filled with sand and dust, which are blown down by the wind with great violence.
