Description

Excerpt from The Holy Bible Containing the Old and New Testaments, Vol. 5: To Which Is Prefixed an Introduction This rhythm of thought is called parallelism; and parallel ism is the one thing that makes Hebrew poetry dif'fer from prose. In most Eastern languages the line between poetry and prose is not so sharply drawn as in our Western languages. When a man made a speech, it often fell quite naturally into poetry. So a good deal of the talk of Jesus, even, seems to have been in the form of Hebrew poetry; as when he said: Be not anxious for your life, what ye shall eat or what ye shall drink, Nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than the food And the body than the raiment? About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
