Yes, the soul dies. The soul is the whole person. The Bible even speaks of the souls of animals meaning the individual creatures. 

Ezekiel 18:4  Behold, all souls are mine; as the soul of the father, so also the soul of the son is mine: the soul that sinneth, it shall die. 

Romans 3:23  For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;

The logic is plain:

  • The soul that sins shall die
  • All souls sin
  • Therefore all souls die

In Genesis 2 we read that God created Adam out of the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life and man became a living soul. What happens if God removes the breath of life?  Man becomes a dead soul.

  •  * Dust of the Ground + Breath of Life = a Living Soul

* Dust of the Ground - Breath of Life = a Dead Soul

Job 34:14,15  If he set his heart upon man, if he gather unto himself his spirit and his breath; 15 All flesh shall perish together, and man shall turn again unto dust.
