Therefore I say to you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body than clothing? Bible other translations

“life” (2x). The Greek word is psuchē (#5590 ψυχή; pronounced psoo-kay’), and psuchē has a large number of meanings, often “soul” or “life.” Here it refers to the physical life of the body, which is why most versions translate it “life,” which is accurate in this context. [For a more complete explanation of psuchē, “soul,” see Appendix 7, “Usages of ‘Soul’”].
