The Soul and the Spirit

I loathe my life; I will give free utterance to my complaint; I will speak in the bitterness of my soul.

You have granted me life and steadfast love, and your care has preserved my spirit.

(Job 10:1, 12) ESV

For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart.

(Hebrews 4:12) ESV

And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.

(Genesis 2:7) KJV

And he was very thirsty, and he called upon the Lord and said, “You have granted this great salvation by the hand of your servant, and shall I now die of thirst and fall into the hands of the uncircumcised?” And God split open the hollow place that is at Lehi, and water came out from it. And when he drank, his spirit returned, and he revived. Therefore the name of it was called En-hakkore; it is at Lehi to this day.

(Judges 15:18-19) ESV

and the dust returns to the earth as it was, and the spirit returns to God who gave it.

(Ecclesiastes 12:7) ESV
