Leviticus 26:11-13 And I shall certainly put my tabernacle in the midst of YOU, and my soul will not abhor YOU. And I shall indeed walk in the midst of YOU and prove myself YOUR God, and YOU, on YOUR part, will prove myself YOUR God, and YOU, on YOUR part will prove yourselves my people. I am Jehovah YOUR God, who brought YOU out of the land of Egypt from acting as slaves to them, and I proceeded to break the bars of YOUR yoke and make YOU walk erect.

Christendom's doctrine of the immortality of the soul is derived from Greek philosophy. It was not revealed through God's revelations to Israel or through the first-century congregation of anointed Christians.
Watchtower - August 1, 1996, page 5
Right in the very first book of the Bible, Genesis, we are told that the soul is not something you have, it is something you are. We read of the creation of Adam, the first human being: "The man came to be a living soul." (Genesis 2:7) The Hebrew word used here for soul, ne'phesh, occurs well over 700 times in the Hebrew Scriptures, never once conveying the idea of a separate, ethereal, spiritual part of man. On the contrary, the soul is tangible, concrete, physical.
