in whose hand is the life of every living thing, and the breath of all mankind?

Young's Literal Translation
In whose hand is the breath of every living thing, And the spirit of all flesh of man.'

Job 12:10 Parallel
Commentary
Clarke's Commentary on the Bible

In whose hand is the soul of every living thing - נפש כל חי nephesh col chai, "the soul of all life."

And the breath of all mankind - ורוח כל בשר veruach col besar, "and the spirit or breath of all flesh." Does not the first refer to the immortal soul, the principle of all intellectual life; and the latter to the breath, respiration, the grand means by which animal existence is continued? See Job 10:1.

Whether, for Salvation, it is Necessary to Believe Anything which is Beyond Natural Reason
Whether, for Salvation, it is Necessary to Believe Anything which is Beyond Natural Reason We proceed to the third article thus: 1. It seems that for salvation it is not necessary to believe anything which is beyond natural reason. For it seems that what naturally belongs to a thing is sufficient for its salvation and perfection. Now the things of faith are beyond natural reason, since they are unseen, as was said in Q. 1, Art. 4. To believe in them is therefore unnecessary for salvation. 2. Again,

Whether Prudence is in us by Nature?
Objection 1: It would seem that prudence is in us by nature. The Philosopher says that things connected with prudence "seem to be natural," namely "synesis, gnome" [*{synesis} and {gnome}, Cf. [2754]FS, Q[57], A[6]] and the like, but not those which are connected with speculative wisdom. Now things belonging to the same genus have the same kind of origin. Therefore prudence also is in us from nature. Objection 2: Further, the changes of age are according to nature. Now prudence results from age,
