ערש דווי

Meaning: Deathbed

Source: Book of Psalms
Pronounced: E'res D'vai
E'res is archaic for bed, Dvai archaic for sick, ill, dying
Despite the fact that the separate words that make up the idiom are archaic, the idiom itself made up of both those words is commonly used in journalistic and literary Hebrew
