 Gave Up the Ghost

Does anyone know why there are only five specific occurances of "Gave up the Ghost" in the Bible (KJV)? Abraham, Ishmael, Isaac, Jesus, Ananias . . .

(edit) There are two more with "yeilded" - Jacob and Sapphira (and Jesus).

 Re: Gave Up the Ghost

I noticed these also:

Lamentations 1:19
I called for my lovers, but they deceived me: my priests and mine elders gave up the ghost in the city, while they sought their meat to relieve their souls.

of herod also:

Acts 12:23
And immediately the angel of the Lord smote him, because he gave not God the glory: and he was eaten of worms, and gave up the ghost.

but yes this is a great word study and would be a good teaching.
