Soul & Spirit

New Testament: Old Testament
The soul and spirit words are different
in each
before translation
and the contents and meaning
of the words are slightly
different.

Wind & life
fly throughout
yet the concepts
regardless of the words
used are clear and
there for all.

Psuche is creation
and life to body as
Pneuma is spirit
and communication
with God.

Soul is heart
and life to body
as
Spirit is breath
of life from God.

I am that I am
body, soul, spirit,
created in the image
and entwined with
the universe, plan,
and will of the
Master.

At creation
man became a living soul
and
at death
the Son delivered his spirit
into the hands of the Father.

Holy Spirit
absolute
infilling and outpouring
laced, tied, and bound
within all
Psuche & Pneuma
of mankind

Godís creations

Sleep and awake
soul and spirit
life and death
soul and spirit
memory and book of life
soul and spirit

The bodyís the vessel
the soul the life
the spirit the way
to one with
the Father
the Son
and the almighty Comforter.

I really liked the last stanza. The wording throughout seemed to be more prose than poetry, but maybe it's just me. Great take on the topic, though. God bless!

I actually considered doing something along this line -- psuche and pneuma. You conveyed the difference very well. I'm a bit surprised you haven't had more comments, but then I love the study of the Greek and Hebrew words! Very nice! :)
