Let death seize upon them,
and let them go down quick into hell:
for wickedness is in their dwellings, and among them.
Does quick in this verse means alive or fast?
"Quick" only appears 10 times, and seems to always refer to alive.
"Quickly" appears 38 times, and seems to always refer to speed.
There is also ~27 "Quicken, Quickeneth, Quickened" again seems to be referring to life.
Num 16:30 But if the LORD make a new thing, and the earth open her mouth, and swallow them up, with all that appertain unto them, and they go down quick into the pit; then ye shall understand that these men have provoked the LORD.
Num 16:33 They, and all that appertained to them, went down alive into the pit, and the earth closed upon them: and they perished from among the congregation.
It is kind of a dual meaning also because any time you go right into hell alive, it is also 'quick' (fast) ... that is to say, a sudden event.
Hi, reading the whole chapter David is suffering from those who are devils, and pleading that they get killed before they do more harm. The faster they go the better everyone else is.
Hope this helps!
