The Greek word analusis

Found just once in the New Testament (2 Tim. 4:62 Tim. 4:6
English: American Standard Version (1901) - ASV

6 For I am already being offered, and the time of my departure is come.

), the Greek noun “analusis” described “death” or a “loosening” (departure).

Just as a ship can be “loosened” from what holds it, so Paul knew he would soon “depart” this life (i.e. die).

People are not only “loosed” from this life by death, their body is “loosed” from their everlasting spirit (Jas. 2:26Jas. 2:26
English: American Standard Version (1901) - ASV

26 For as the body apart from the spirit is dead, even so faith apart from works is dead.
