The KJV translates Strong's G1720 in the following manner: breathe on (1x).
  1. to blow or breathe upon

    The Greek word here used is employed nowhere else in the New Testament, but is the very one used by the Septuagint translators of Gen 2:7: '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.' There, man's original creation was completed by this act of God; who, then, can fail to see that here in John 20, on the day of the Saviour's resurrection, the new creation had begun, begun by the Head of the new creation, the last Adam acting as 'a quickening spirit' (1Cr 15:45)!" (Arthur W. Pink, Exposition of the Gospel of John, p. 1100).

STRONGS NT 1720: ἐμφυσάω
ἐμφυσάω, -ῶ [see ἐν, III. 3]: 1 aorist ἐνεφύσησα; to blow or breathe on: τινά, John 20:22, where Jesus, after the manner of the Hebrew prophets, expresses by the symbolic act of breathing upon the apostles the communication of the Holy Spirit to them — having in view the primary meaning of the words רוּחַ and πνεῦμα [cf. e. g. Ezekiel 37:5]. (Sept.; Dioscorides, Aretaeus, Geoponica, others; [to inflate, Aristotle, others].)
