Why does God like a broken spirit? Wat does it mean to be broken spiritually?

Vivien, it means a heart which is much worried for the sins committed against God ! A penitent soul or a sorrowful soul for the subs committed against God .
I quote below a comment by a man called Clarke on this verse. ...... Verse 17. The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit] As my crimes are such as admit of no legal atonement, so thou hast reserved them to be punished by exemplary acts of justice, or to be pardoned by a sovereign act of mercy: but in order to find this mercy, thou requirest that the heart and soul should deeply feel the transgression, and turn to thee with the fullest compunction and remorse. This thou hast enabled me to do. I have the broken spirit, ruach nishbarah; and the broken and contrite heart, leb nishbar venidkeh. These words are very expressive. shabar signifies exactly the same as our word shiver, to break into pieces, to reduce into splinters; and dakah, signifies to beat out thin,-to beat out masses of metal, c., into laminae or thin plates. The spirit broken all to pieces, and the heart broken all to pieces, stamped and beaten out, are the sacrifices which, in such cases, thou requirest and these "thou wilt not despise." We may now suppose that God had shone upon his soul, healed his broken spirit, and renewed and removed his broken and distracted heart; and that he had now received the answer to the preceding prayers. And here the Psalm properly ends; as, in the two following verses, there is nothing similar to what we find in the rest of this very nervous and most important composition. ,...... Hope it is clear bro .

Please what is the different between the spirit of God and the spirit of man. because in genesis the word says "and God breaths in Adam and he became human" so which is the spirit that God gave to him(Adam) and which is the spirit of God. i don't understand please any help?

There are two types of Spirits in context to Human.. Spirit of Elohim and Spirit of Human.. Spirit of Human is only thing which makes us unique among other living souls.. Spirit of Human is the one responsible for intellectual thinking - reasoning, creativity, decision making and attitude.. Without which we all will be similar like animals.. This spirit also makes us possible to connect with Spirit of Elohim.. It serves a direct connection to Human and his creator.. Human spirit gives us the ability to think act and love on Human level.. While Elohim's Holy Spirit gives us the ability to think act and love beyond Human level.. But we physical humans aren't alive because of Spirit.. We are alive because of the oxygenated blood circulation like all other animals..
Note: These spirits on their own cannot think or act on their own.. They don't have Consciousness on their own..
