By what figure does the Bible represent death?

Answer

"But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that you sorrow not,
even as others which have no hope." 1 Thess. 4: 13. See also 1 Cor. 15: 18, 20; John 11: 11-14.
NOTE-In sound sleep one is wholly lost to consciousness; time goes by unmeasured; and the
mental functions which are active during consciousness are suspended for the time being.
