In the scriptures Jesus compared death to sleep.

This "sleep" has no consciousness. When a person is resurrected they are "awakened" out of their "sleep".

Psalm 6:4-5
Return, O Lord, deliver me! Oh, save me for Your mercies’ sake! For in death there is no remembrance of You; In the grave who will give You thanks?

Psalm 115:17
The dead do not praise the Lord, Nor any who go down into silence.

Ecclesiastes 9:10
Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with your might; for there is no work or device or knowledge or wisdom in the grave where you are going.
