LIVE: “to be, to have life; to experience,” also “to supply oneself with food, to pass life (in some condition), to remain, to persist, persevere, continue”. Another meaning: “to make a residence, dwell”.

LIFE: “existence, lifetime, way of life, condition of being a living thing, opposite of death,” Much of the modern range of meanings was present in Old English. Meaning “art which distinguishes living from non-living matter”, sense of “vitality, energy” extended to “term of duration (of inanimate objects).”

BELIEF used to mean “trust in God,” while faith meant “loyalty to a person based promise or duty” (a sense preserved in keep one’s faith, in good (or bad) and in common usage of faithful (or faithless), which contain no notion of divinity). But faith, as cognate of Latin fides, took on the religious sense and belief became limited to “mental acceptance of something as truth,” from the religious use in the sense of “truth as a matter of religious doctrine”.
