However, we do find instances in which there are both (such as Aramaic, Syriac, Ge'ez, etc.), and those with one or the other, for example, we find some texts saying "with all your heart, soul and strength/might/power" (same word translated variously in English), while others say "with all your heart, soul and strength/might/power." We see this here, for example:

Thanks for that. I looked up "nephesh"; and while it is usually translated as "soul," there are a few times when the KJV translates it as "mind" since it can mean that also. I incline to think "nephesh" includes both "nous" and "psyche." If that is true, using one word to translate Moses would be inadequate.
