SCRIPTURE PASSAGES on breath
By the word of God the heavens were made, and by the breath of God’s the stars appeared.
[Job said:] The Spirit of God has made me, and the breath of the Almighty gives me life.
Letting out a loud cry, Jesus breathed his last.
And yet, as we read together recently from John…
When he had said, [“Peace to you”],
Jesus breathed on them and said to them, “Receive the Holy Spirit.”
Thus says God, who created the heavens and stretched them out, who spread out the earth and what comes from it, who gives breath to the people on it and spirit to those who walk in it:
[I call you as healers to sing a new song.]
Let everything that has breath praise the Creator!
