    You can’t find ‘ashes to ashes, dust to dust’ in the Bible because it isn’t there. The phrase comes from the funeral service in the Book of Common Prayer, and it is based on Genesis 3:19.

    Genesis3:19b " for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return."


    'I will bring thee to ashes upon the earth in the sight of all them that behold thee' (Ezekiel 27:18).

    Open to interpretaion, which is always on a personal basis.

    Thank you, Daren. That does come very close to " ashes to ashes , dust to dust " And that says something for cremation, doesn't it ?
