And when he came to his senses, he said: How many hired servants are now at my father's house, who have bread enough, and I am here perishing (??????) with hunger. Luke, 15:17.

For the sun rises in its heat, and dries up the herb; and its flower falls, and the beauty of its appearance perishes
(??????): so also the rich man withers in his ways. James, 1:11.
