Strong's Greek Dictionary

5590
ψυχή (psychḗ)
from 5594; breath, i.e. (by implication) spirit, abstractly or concretely (the animal sentient principle only; thus distinguished on the one hand from 4151, which is the rational and immortal soul; and on the other from 2222, which is mere vitality, even of plants: these terms thus exactly correspond respectively to the Hebrew 5315, 7307 and 2416)
:--heart (+ -ily), life, mind, soul, + us, + you.
