“life” (2x). The Greek word is psuchē (#5590 ψυχή; pronounced psoo-kay’), often translated “soul.” The Greek word has a large number of meanings, including the physical life of a person or animal; an individual person; or attitudes, emotions, feelings, and thoughts. Here it refers to the physical life of the body, which is why most versions translate it “life,” which is accurate in this context. [See commentary on Matt. 16:25. For a more complete explanation of psuchē, “soul,” see Appendix 7: “Usages of ‘Soul’”].
