I lay down on a deck-chair, and when dawn came was benumbed and sleepy.
It is so cold, so dark, my senses are so benumbed, and the gloom upon me is so dreadful.
The heart may be quite happy and strong when the hands are benumbed with cold.
The icy water so benumbed us we could scarcely control our limbs.
But the gathering grew sad, benumbed, as it were, with lassitude.
