“But the soul who does anything defiantly, whether he is native–born or a foreigner, the same blasphemes Yahweh, and that soul is to be cut off from among his people. Bible

“does anything.” The context is sin. The person who sins any sin.

“defiantly.” The Hebrew uses an idiom: “with a high hand,” meaning defiantly, deliberately, “a conscious and willed transgression of the law” (cp. BDAG Heb.-English lexicon).

“soul.” In this context, “soul” means an individual person. [See Appendix 7, “Usages of ‘Soul’”].
