17 They shall lick the dust like a serpent, they shall move out of their holes like worms of the earth: they shall be afraid of the LORD our God, and shall fear because of thee. Micah 7:17
17 They shall lick the dust like a serpent, they shall move out of their [micgereth..something enclosing, enclosure,a stronghold, close place, border, hole.] holes like [zachal..to fear, be afraid, to creep, crawl, serpent, worm.] worms of the earth: they shall be afraid of the LORD our God, and shall fear because of thee. Micah 7:17
Frightening things live in holes in the earth..A hole in the ground can be a stronghold..Things that creep and crawl live in holes in the earth..Serpents live in holes in the earth..Serpents are frightening things..Worms live in holes in the earth.
11 Thy pomp is brought down to the grave, and the noise of thy viols: the worm is spread under thee, and the worms cover thee. Isaiah 14:11
11 Thy pomp is brought down to the grave, and the noise of thy viols: the [rimmah..a (maggot, worm).] worm is [yatsa..make (one's bed), to strew as a surface, to be caused to go (out, forth), spread, lie.] spread under thee, and the [toleah, tolaath..(coccus) worm, worms. From yala..a voracious maggot, devour. With shani, crimson grub, the (insect or its color) things dyed with the insect, crimson, scarlet (thread).] worms cover thee. Isaiah 14:11
There are worms in soil..Worms live in soil (the earth)..Worms live in holes in the earth..Worms eat..Worms devour (eat) rotting things..Within the soil (ground) worms spread out like a bed beneath the rotting carcases of the dead..And the worms cover the carcases, and they devour (eat) the rotting flesh..And the worms return the carcases of the dead to the earth..Dead things become vapour and dust. Psalm 37:20..Genesis 3:19
26 They shall lie down alike in the dust, and the worms shall cover them. Job 21:26
26 They shall [shakab..lay self down, lie (down, still, with), to lie down (as dead, or for rest, for sexual activity, or some other reason), be (lien with, ravished), lie down to sleep, be laid down, take rest, sleep, make to lie down, lay, be laid, casting down, lodge, stay, at all.] lie down alike in the [aphar..to pulverize, cast dust, to be dust, powder, powdered dust, gray dust, ashes, earth, clay, mud, mortar, ground, rubbish.] dust, and the [rimmah..a (maggot, worm).] worms shall [kacah..clad self, cover (self), to cover (for clothing, or secrecy), clothe, be (clothed, covered), conceal, close, flee (to hide), fill up hollows, to plump, to grow fat eg: be covered with flesh, overwhelm.] cover them. Job 21:26
When something, or someone dies, the body lays upon or, is buried within the soil, and worms cover, and fill, the carcases, and the worms devour (eat) it, and the body is digested in the stomache of the worm, and the digested matter provides the worm with energy. (feeds and nourishes the worm), and the waste matter which is excreted into the soil, becomes the compost which feeds and nourished the soil. For dust thou art and unto dust thou shalt return. Genesis 3:19
There are worms in soil..Worms live in soil (the earth)..
Worms live in holes in the earth..Worms eat..Worms devour (eat) rotting things..When something, or someone dies, the body lays upon or, is buried within the soil, and worms spread out like a bed beneath the rotting carcase, and the worms cover the carcase, and they fill the carcase, and they devour (eat) the rotting flesh, and the body of the rotting carcase is broken down (digested) in the stomache of the worms, and the food and nourishment (digested matter)
provides the worms with energy. And the worms excrete, (return) the digested (broken down) matter (compost) to the soil..Decaying matter contains energy..Dead things become the continually moving and whirling mass of vapours, we inhale, and eat, and drink, and the continually moving and whirling about, recycled rock, and pulverized, powdery dust,
beneath our feet.. Psalm 37:20..Genesis 3:19
The coccus worm is a scarlet scale insect (coccus cacti). The insect lives on the Nopalea Cochinellifera (Mex. Nopalli.) cactus plant which is native to Mexico in South America, where the cactus is cultivated to feed the insects
..The natural scarlet dye (cochineal) is obtained from the pigment carminic acid which is extracted from the dried bodies of the female insects.
