New Defender's Study Bible Notes

20:27 spirit of man. The human “spirit” (Hebrew neshamah) has been imparted directly to man by God Himself (Genesis 2:7), and is part of the “image of God” (Genesis 1:27). That image is severely marred by sin, but is still there, serving as God’s “candle” to illuminate his thoughts and enable him to respond in saving faith to God’s provision of salvation and restoration.
