Ruach HaKodesh (Hebrew: רוח הקודש, meaning Divine Spirit or Divine Inspiration, literally "Holy Spirit", also transliterated Ruah Ha-qodesh) is the term used in the Jewish Hebrew Bible (Tanakh) to refer to the Spirit of YHVH. The Ketuvim (works of Biblical wisdom literature) are believed to have been written under the Ruach HaKodesh, a level less than that of prophecy.
