Breathe the breath of lives, or, another Bible Study reason to believe into Jesus Christ the LORD / Christ Jehovah / Messiah YHVeH

Genesis 7 (King James Version)

 21And all flesh died that moved upon the earth, both of fowl, and of cattle, and of beast, and of every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth,
and every man

 22All in whose nostrils was the breath of life, of all that was in the dry land, died.

 וַיִּגְוַ֞ע כָּל־בָּשָׂ֣ר ׀ הָרֹמֵ֣שׂ עַל־הָאָ֗רֶץ בָּעֹ֤וף וּבַבְּהֵמָה֙ וּבַ֣חַיָּ֔ה וּבְכָל־הַשֶּׁ֖רֶץ הַשֹּׁרֵ֣ץ עַל־הָאָ֑רֶץ וְכֹ֖ל הָאָדָֽם׃

  כֹּ֡ל אֲשֶׁר֩ נִשְׁמַת־ר֨וּחַ חַיִּ֜ים בְּאַפָּ֗יו מִכֹּ֛ל אֲשֶׁ֥ר בֶּחָֽרָבָ֖ה מֵֽתוּ׃

In Genesis 7:22 there is the death of all who on land that "nishmat-ruach hayyim" / "breathed the breath of lives" , referring especially to the last word of the preceding verse of Genesis 7:21, at least it is so in the  Hebrew ... and that word is  "hadam" / "mankind".  The particular use of hayyim, "lives", is meant to serve as a distinction as relating particularly to humanity, and I believe that the underlined is meant to be read together, even though it has been distinguished by the Massoretes and tradition springing from them as if these two verses it were to be somehow separated.  The Hebrew and the fluidity of the reading suggests that this just isn't supposed to be the case.

Nishmat (the first emboldened word of Genesis 7:22 above, as we read right to left) as tinshemet is "animal", which seems to come from nasham, "to pant", which is used only once in Isaiah 42:14.  But a closer look at the Theology of the Bible tells us that G-D has taken to Himself the inhale masculine and exhale feminine sounds of our breathing, YH and VeH and combined them.
Hence, when we look at the origin of Nashamah, a literal breath (of air) or breathing (in and out), we are to read it as a Trinity of a one and two letter root word combining as a three letter whole.  The letter Nun pronounced as if followed by an invisible  Alef  (or as "NA" - "to pray, ask, entreat, exhort") and Shem - '(the) Name"  or  Sham - "there". 

  "The Name" is a Hebraic expression that refers to the tetragrammaton NAME of YHVH, sometimes pronounced as Yahweh, YHVeH, or Jehovah.  In effect, we now see a Gematriac related alternate translation of the Nashamah to the effect as either "to ask or pray to Yahweh" or "to ask or pray there."   

But there is also a third possibility.   If Shem is not implied, then Shamah is the singular of heaven ( pl. - 'hashamayim '  or "the heavens").   The translation after the alternate Gematriac translation using multiple word root combinations, without getting to the numerically synonyms, would then translate to the effect of "to ask or pray Heaven"...or by inference, "to as or pray to GOD."

When the pre-incarnate Yeshua / Jesus breathed into man the breath of the second life

 (cf. Lamentations 4:20
 20The breath of our nostrils, the Anointed of the LORD / Messhiach YHVeH/ Messiah (the) LORD / Christ Jehovah, was taken in their pits, of whom we said, Under his shadow we shall live among the heathen.
 20 ר֤וּחַ אַפֵּ֙ינוּ֙ מְשִׁ֣יחַ יְהוָ֔ה נִלְכַּ֖ד בִּשְׁחִיתֹותָ֑ם אֲשֶׁ֣ר אָמַ֔רְנוּ בְּצִלֹּ֖ו נִֽחְיֶ֥ה בַגֹּויִֽם׃

 Genesis 2:7
  7And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.
  7 וַיִּיצֶר֩ יְהוָ֨ה אֱלֹהִ֜ים אֶת־הָֽאָדָ֗ם עָפָר֙ מִן־הָ֣אֲדָמָ֔ה וַיִּפַּ֥ח בְּאַפָּ֖יו נִשְׁמַ֣ת חַיִּ֑ים וַֽיְהִ֥י הָֽאָדָ֖ם לְנֶ֥פֶשׁ חַיָּֽה׃

, et al. ),

 He  (Jesus / YHVeH Messiah / GOD the Son)  breathed into our forefather Adam the "breath of Heaven" as it were, as if the smallest sliver of the spirit and soul of G-D; and this is what is meant when we read that Adam received the breath of  "hayyim", the breath of "lives".  It appears to me that Adam (in Genesis 2:7) is actually being told us that he (at his creation by the Creator) gained that access to the second life and eternity in Heaven with GOD the Creator by the very interaction exhale breath (VeH) of GOD (YH). 

In breathing into man the second life, G-D gave us a new ability to discern with the heart and mind between right and wrong, and on how we are to think about and know G-D.  In a way, G-D planted a spiritual seed of Himself within man, who was first given a physical body or "basar" with 5 external senses in which to house G-D's spiritual seed planted in Adam, and then G-D watched it grow.

At the moment of conception, when G-D breathed into Adam the breath of lives, Adam became a "son of G-D", a little higher than the angels in his formation and creation.  When Adam fell, he chose to exercise a misuse of the ability to discern between right and wrong and how to think on G-D (cf. Hebrew- Ruach / Greek -  pneuma).  He followed a mood, a state of mind involving appetite and inclination (cf. Hebrew -Nephesh / Greek- psyche).      The living soul, the living mood and appetite and inclination unto G-D was slain, and with it the living spirit died within man also (and along with it, his ability to discern between right and wrong and how to think on G-D.  

To right the wrong, for whatever reason, G-D thought it prudent to inhabit a house of flesh fit to be inhabited, born of the seed of David, of the virgin daughter of the seed of David, using a well-spring source of water from Heaven springing up in the virgin's womb

(John 4:14 -  But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.)

to form a man child in the womb.  Man died from believing the words of a murderer. So man would come to live by believing the One who gave life to man at the Beginning...by believing into Yeshua, His words, His atonement, His Death - Burial - Resurrection - Ascension to Heaven.   Believing is a life-long endeavor, it is a process of learning and growing...of bearing fruit year after year, so that we, like the tree of life, might be removed from Earth

 (Genesis 3:22-24
 22And the LORD God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever:
 23Therefore the LORD God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from whence he was taken.
 24So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life.    )

to the presence of G-D in Heaven

 (Revelation 22:1- 2 
 1And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb.
 2In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.   ).

As believers, we are to identify with the Tree of Life, planted by the river of life pouring forth out from and flowing forth in the presence of GOD the Father and the Lamb, Jesus Christ; and recall the first three verses of the First Psalm:
 1Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.
 2But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.
 3And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.

May you believe into the LORD Jesus Christ and be eternally spiritually saved, redeemed in ways wonderful beyond the mere comprehension of this physical life only,  as we know it now.

(Romans 10:9-10,13
 9That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
 10For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

 13For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. )

 Shalom / Peace in mind- body - and spirit.
