Exodus 17:6

Behold, I will stand before you there on the rock in Horeb; and you shall strike the rock, and water will come out of it, that the people may drink." And Moses did so in the sight of the elders of Israel.

ഞാൻ ഹോരേബിൽ നിന്റെ മുമ്പാകെ പാറയുടെ മേൽ നിലക്കും; നീ പാറയെ അടിക്കേണം; ഉടനെ ജനത്തിന്നു കുടിപ്പാൻ വെള്ളം അതിൽനിന്നു പുറപ്പെടും എന്നു കല്പിച്ചു. യിസ്രായേൽമൂപ്പന്മാർ കാൺകെ മോശെ അങ്ങനെ ചെയ്തു.

Zechariah 14:12

And this shall be the plague with which the LORD will strike all the people who fought against Jerusalem: Their flesh shall dissolve while they stand on their feet, Their eyes shall dissolve in their sockets, And their tongues shall dissolve in their mouths.

യെരൂശലേമിനോടു യുദ്ധം ചെയ്ത സകലജാതികളെയും യഹോവ ശിക്ഷിപ്പാനുള്ള ശിക്ഷയാവിതു: അവർ നിവിർന്നു നിലക്കുമ്പോൾ തന്നേ അവരുടെ മാംസം ചീഞ്ഞഴുകിപ്പോകും; അവരുടെ കണ്ണു തടത്തിൽ തന്നേ ചീഞ്ഞഴുകിപ്പോകും; അവരുടെ നാവു വായിൽ തന്നേ ചീഞ്ഞഴുകിപ്പോകും.
