A slanderer walks around revealing secrets,
but the person who is of a faithful spirit conceals a matter. Bible

“spirit.” This is the use of “spirit” (Hebrew: ruach #07307 רוּחַ) that refers to the activities of the mind: the thoughts, attitudes and emotions. [For more on the uses of “spirit,” see Appendix 6, “Usages of ‘Spirit.’” Usage #13 concerns thoughts and emotions].
