STRONGS H5315: Abbreviations
נֶ֫פֶשׁ 756 noun feminineGenesis 49:6 (so even Genesis 2:19; Numbers 31:28; 1 Kings 19:2 see AlbrZAW xvi (1896), 42 SS) soul, living being, life, self, person, desire, appetite, emotion, and passion (Ecclesiasticus 3:18; 4:1 (twice in verse); Ecclesiasticus 4:2 (twice in verse); Ecclesiasticus 13:12; Ecclesiasticus 14:11); — נ׳ Genesis 1:20 +; נָ֑פֶשׁ Genesis 37:21 +; suffix נַפְשִׁי Genesis 12:13 +; plural נְפָשׁוֺת Ezekiel 13:18 + 13 times; נְפָשֹׁת Exodus 12:4; Leviticus 27:2; construct נַפְשׁוֺת Genesis 36:6 + 4 times; נַפְשֹׁת Leviticus 21:11; נְפָשִׁים Ezekiel 13:20 (but read חָפְשִׁים, see Co Berthol Toy); suffix נַפְשׁוֺתָם 2 Samuel 23:17 +; נַפְשֹׁתָם Numbers 17:3 +: —
1. = that which breathes, the breathing substance or being = ψυχή, anima, the soul, the inner being of man:
a. distinguished from ׃בָּשָׂר מִנֶּפֶשׁ וְעַד בָּשָׂר Isaiah 10:18; הַנֶּפֶשׁ עִם הַבָּשָׂר Deuteronomy 12:23; from שְׁאֵר Proverbs 11:17; from בֶּטֶן body Psalm 31:10.
b. both the inner נפשׁ and the outer בשׂר are conceived as resting on a common substratum: אַךְ בְּשָׂרוֺ עָלָיו יִכְאָ֑ב וְנַפְשׁוֺ עָלָיו תֶּאֱבָֽל׃ Job 14:22 only his flesh upon him is in pain, and his soul upon him mourneth; compare Psalm 42:5; Psalm 42:7; Psalm 131:2; Job 30:16; Lamentations 3:20 [see עַל 1d], all poetical (compare 6 c).
c. נ׳ departs at death and returns with life: וַיְתִי בְּצֵאת נַפְשָׁהּ כִּי מֵתָה Genesis 35:18 (E) and it came to pass when her soul was going forth (for she died); בַפְשָׁהּ נָֽפְחָה Jeremiah 15:9 she breathed out her soul, compare 1 Kings 17:21, 22; Job 11:20; Job 31:39.
d. often desired that the נפשׁ may be delivered: from She’ôl Psalm 16:10; Psalm 30:4; Psalm 49:16; Psalm 86:13; Psalm 89:49; Proverbs 23:14; from שַׁחַת, the pit of She’ôl, Isaiah 38:17; Job 33:18, 22, 28, 30.
2. The נפשׁ becomes a living being: by God's breathing נשׁמת חיים into the nostrils of its בשׂר; of man Genesis 2:7 (J); by implication of animals also Genesis 2:19 (J); so Psalm 104:29; Psalm 104:30; compare Psalm 66:9; man is נֶפֶשׁ חַיָּה, a living, breathing being Genesis 2:7 (J); elsewhere נפשׁ חיּה always of animals Genesis 1:20, 24, 30; Genesis 9:12, 15, 16 (all P), Ezekiel 47:9; so נפשׁ החיּה Genesis 1:21; Genesis 9:10 (both P), Leviticus 11:10, 46 (H); נפשׁ השׁרצת Leviticus 11:46 (H); נפשׁ כל חי Job 12:10. נפשׁ is frequently used with the verb ׃חיה וחיתה נפשׁ Genesis 12:13; Genesis 19:20 (both J), 1 Kings 20:32 (E), Psalm 119:175; Jeremiah 38:17, 20; חֵי נַפְשְׁךָ 1 Samuel 1:26; 1 Samuel 17:55; 1 Samuel 20:3; 1 Samuel 25:26; 2 Samuel 11:11; 2 Samuel 14:9; 2 Kings 2:2, 4, 6; 2 Kings 4:30 (all J E); compare † יְחַיֶּה נ׳ 1 Kings 20:31 (E), Ezekiel 18:27; Psalm 22:30; also Genesis 19:19; Isaiah 55:3; Proverbs 3:22.
3. The נפשׁ (without חיה noun or verb) is specified:
a. a living being whose life resides in the blood [so in Arabic WeSkizzen iii. 217 G. JacobArab. Dicht. iv. 9 f.] (hence sacrificial use of blood, and its prohibition in other uses; first in D), Deuteronomy 12:23, 24 only be sure that thou eat not the blood, for the blood is the living being (הַדָּם הוּא הַנֶּפֶשׁ); and thou shalt not eat the living being with the flesh (הַנֶּפֶשׁ עִם הַבָּשָׂר); thou shalt pour it upon the earth as water; this is enlarged in H, Leviticus 17:10, 11, 12, 14 and in P Genesis 9:4, 5, compare Jeremiah 2:34.
b. a serious attack upon the life is an attack upon this inner living being 2 Samuel 1:9; Jeremiah 4:10; Jonah 2:6; Psalm 69:2; Psalm 124:4; Psalm 124:5; Job 27:3.

c. sorrow and distress: † מרי נ׳ bitter, gloomy, discontented of soul Judges 18:25 (E) 2 Samuel 17:8; Job 3:20; Proverbs 31:6; † מר נ׳ 1 Samuel 22:2 compare Job 7:11; Job 10:1; Isaiah 38:15; Ezekiel 27:1; עָֽגְמָה נ׳ Job 30:35 grieved; אגמי נ׳ sad of soul Isaiah 19:10; תבכה נ׳ my soul shall weep Jeremiah 13:17; ירעה נ׳ his soul trembleth Isaiah 15:4; צרת נ׳ distress of soul Genesis 42:21 (E).
†d. joy: תגיל נ׳ my soul rejoiceth Psalm 35:9; Isaiah 61:10; שׂמּח נ׳ rejoice the soul Psalm 86:4; also Psalm 94:19; Psalm 138:3; Proverbs 29:17.
†e. love: אהבה נ׳ my soul loveth Songs 1:7; Songs 3:1, 2, 3, 4; יְדִדוּת נ׳ darling of my soul Jeremiah 12:7; ב׳ דבקה נ׳ his soul clave unto Genesis 34:3 (J), with אחרי Psalm 63:9; חשׁקה ב׳ נ׳ soul is attached to Genesis 34:8 (P).
f. alienation, hatred, revenge: † מן תֵּקַע נ׳ the soul is alienated from Jeremiah 6:8; Ezekiel 23:17, 18; מן נקעה נ׳ Ezekiel 23:18, 22, 28; שְׂנֻאי נ׳ hated of soul 2 Samuel 5:8 (Qr); שׂנאה נ׳ Psalm 11:5; Isaiah 1:14.
g. other emotions and feelings: השׁיב נ׳ bring back soul Lamentations 1:11, 19 (i.e. revive, compare with שׁוּב 1 Kings 17:21f), hence figurative refresh, cheer, 1 Kings 17:16; Psalm 19:8; Proverbs 25:14; Ruth 4:15; שׁובב נ׳ Psalm 23:3; מַחְמַל נ׳ your souls' compassion Ezekiel 24:21; קצרה נ׳ soul was impatient Numbers 21:4 (E), Judges 10:16; Judges 16:16; Zechariah 11:8; כי אאריך נ׳ that I should prolong my patience Job 6:11 הגר ידעתם אתנֿ׳ ye know the feeling of the stranger Exodus 23:9 (RD).
7. נפשׁ is used occasionally for mental acts + לבב (see 10); possibly also alone, owing to unconscious assimilation by late writers; but most, if not all, examples may be otherwise explained: נפשׁי ידעת מאד Psalm 139:14 my soul knoweth well (or I know well; compare 4 a); בלא לא טוב דעת נ׳ Proverbs 19:2 that the soul be without knowledge is not good (but RVm desire without knowledge, compare 6 a); דעה חכמה לנ׳ Proverbs 24:14 know wisdom for thy soul (or according to thy desire, compare6a); אל תדמי בנ׳ Esther 4:13 think not in thy soul (or in thyself, compare 4b); כמו שׁער בג׳ Proverbs 23:7 as he reckoneth in his soul (but RV in himself, compare 4 b); מה תאמר נ׳ 1 Samuel 20:4 (but AV RV following Greek Version of the LXX ἐπιθυμεῖ = תְּאַוֶּה; see 6 a).
8. נפשׁ for acts of the will is dubious: אם ישׁ נפשׁכם (את) if it is your purpose Genesis 23:8 (P) 2 Kings 9:15 (or if it is your desire, 6a); בחרה נ׳ my soul chooseth Job 7:15; מאנה נ׳ my soul, refuseth Job 6:7; Psalm 77:3; חפצה נ׳ their soul delighteth in Isaiah 66:3; רצתה נ׳ my soul delighteth in Isaiah 42:1; (all perhaps emotional, 6b, d, g).
9. נפשׁ = character is still more dubious: בּוֹ נ'לא־יָֽשְׁרָה Habakkuk 2:4 his soul is not right in him (but Greek Version of the LXX οὐκ εὐδοκεῖ ἡ ψυχή μου ἐν αὐτῷ [εὐδοκεῖ = רצתה], see 6); נַפְשִׁי לאֹ מְטֻמָּאָה Ezekiel 4:14 my soul hath not (or I have not, 4a) been polluted.
†10. נ׳ in D, when used with לבב, is assimilated to it, and shares with it the meanings of 7, 8, 9; and so in later writers influenced by D (unless we may think that ל׳ is used of intellect, while נ׳ is used of the feelings): thus, בכל לבב ובכל נפשׁ (see לבב): with דרשׁ Deuteronomy 4:29; 2 Chronicles 15:12; עשׂה Deuteronomy 26:16; אהב Deuteronomy 6:5; 13:4; 30:6; ידע Joshua 23:14; עבד Deuteronomy 10:12; Deuteronomy 11:13; Joshua 22:5; שׁמע בקלו Deuteronomy 30:2; שׁוב אל Deuteronomy 30:10; 1 Kings 8:48 2 Chronicles 6:38; 2 Kings 23:25; שׁמר מצות 2 Kings 23:3 2 Chronicles 34:31; הלך לפני 1 Kings 2:4; and Deuteronomy 11:18; 1 Samuel 2:35; 1 Chronicles 22:19; 1 Chronicles 28:9; Jeremiah 32:41; Psalm 13:8 [Psalm 13:2] [?]; Proverbs 2:10; Proverbs 24:12.
Note. — In three cases is generally found closer approach to supposed radical meaning breath:
a. שׁמן וקטרת ישׂמח לב ומתק רעהו מעצת נפשׁ Proverbs 27:9. Ges (after Döderlein) renders מעצת נ׳ more than odorous trees, so later edds., even Buhl; but Vulgate De SS transpose) מֵעֲצַת רֵעֵהוּ וּמֶתֶק נ׳. Greek Version of the LXX Hi Bi ומתקרעה = the soul is rent asunder by cares. In any case נפשׁ is || לב, compare 10.
b. נַפְשׁוֺ גֶּחָלִים תְּלַהֵט Job 41:13 his breath kindleth coals (of the crocodile). The piece is one of the latest in the book; primitive meaning hardly in such a passage; context favours reference to passion or fury; perhaps below 6f, his passion or fury kindleth coals.
c. בָּתֵּי הַנֶּפֶשׁ Isaiah 3:20 perfume boxes; meaning evident from context; but not necessarily scent (breath)-boxes; may be 6 a, boxes of desire, or 5, boxes exciting the sense of smell; = smelling boxes or bottles. No sufficient evidence in Biblical Hebrew, therefore, for meaning breath, odour. — See, for complete study of נֶפֶשׁ (all passages), BrJBL 1897,17 ff.
