Ashes to ashes - a Christian perspective
The phrase "ashes to ashes, dust to dust" is a reference to this verse, which declares that mankind, which was created out of the dust, will inevitably return to it in death.


Dust in the Bible: Ecclesiastes 3:20
Adam, the first human, was created out of dust, and this verse reminds us that death--a return to dust--is an inevitable part of the human existence. Not an uplifting verse, perhaps, but a simple reality to be accepted.
