Nephesh (נֶפֶש) is a Biblical Hebrew word which occurs in the Hebrew Bible (or Old Testament). Although it is commonly rendered as soul in English translations, the word refers to the tangible aspects of life, and human beings and animals are both described as being living soul(s). (Or Nephesh - "That which breathes") See Genesis 2:7 [1]
