Numbers 27:16
the Lord: Yehowah elohey haroochoth lechol basar, "Jehovah, the God of the spirits of all flesh." This address sufficiently proves, that this holy man believed man to be compounded of flesh and spirit, and that these principles are perfectly distinct. Either the materiality of the soul is a human fable, or, if it be a true doctrine, Moses did not pray under the influence of the Divine Spirit. There is a similar form of expression in Num 16:22 : "O God, the God of the spirits of all flesh;" and in Job 12:10, "In whose hand is the soul (nephesh) of all living; and the spirit (rooach) of all flesh of man." These seem decisive proofs, among many others, that the Old Testament teaches that there is an immortal spirit in man; for though rooach sometimes denotes breath or wind, yet it certainly has not that signification here, nor in the other passages cited. the God: Num 16:22, Heb 12:9 set a man: Deu 31:14, 1Sa 12:13, 1Ki 5:5, Jer 3:15, Jer 23:4, Jer 23:5, Eze 34:11-16, Eze 34:23, Eze 37:24, Mat 9:38, Joh 10:11, Act 20:28, 1Pe 5:2-4 Reciprocal: Gen 2:7 - a living Gen 49:24 - the shepherd Num 20:28 - put them Jos 1:2 - arise 1Sa 18:13 - he went out 2Ki 2:9 - Ask what Ecc 12:7 - God Isa 28:6 - for a spirit Jer 32:27 - God Jer 38:16 - that made Eze 18:4 - all souls Hos 13:1 - exalted Zec 4:6 - Not Act 1:24 - Lord Act 9:28 - coming Act 17:25 - seeing 1Th 2:4 - but God 2Ti 2:7 - and
