is the rendering in the A.V. of the N.T. for two Greek words of somewhat kindred signification:
1, as opposed to artificial, φυσιχός, applied only to the animal nature of men (Romans 1:26-27; Judges 1:10) or beasts (2 Peter 2:12);
2, as opposed to spiritual, ψυχικός, applied to inanimate objects (1 Corinthians 15:44; 1 Corinthians 15:46), and to men in their unconverated state (1 Corinthians 2:14), or as depraved (James 3:15; Judges 1:19). (See CARNAL).
