For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life because of me and the good news will save it. Bible

“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’”].
