Ruah is mentioned 389 times in the Hebrew Scriptures. Judaism is a Bronze Age religion. Ruah was breath. Ruah meant breath. It meant spirit. It meant wind. It meant all those things. Retroactively people made it fancy into some magical skin pore breaching thing from another dimension. But Bronze Age religion, it was breath because that’s when all animals and humans are first alive and viable: when they can breathe. Take away the breath of life, and you have the non-breath of death because you can’t breathe.
