And to every animal of the earth and to every bird of the heavens and to everything that crawls on the ground in which is living soul, I have given every green herb for food.” And it was so. Bible see other translations

“living soul.” The Hebrew word “soul” is nephesh (#05315 נֶפֶשׁ), and nephesh is the life force that animates humans and animals, and it is also used of “individuals.” Here it refers specifically to the life force in humans and animals. See commentary on Genesis 1:21. [For more information on soul, see Appendix 7: “Usages of “Soul’”].
