The Prophet And The Poet: Parallelism In Biblical Poetry
of Biblical Old Testament
written in poetry?
Entire books Job Psalms Proverbs
the Song of Solomon Lamentations
except for short prose sections.
Large portions of Isaiah Jeremiah
the writings of Minor Prophets
adhere to poetic form and content.
Observe three main divisions
of an inspired Old Testament
the Law the Prophets the Writings
all contain prized poetry
in exultant larger amounts.
Why did God choose poetry?
Why do seven Old Testament books
Leviticus Ruth Ezra Nehemiah
Esther Haggai Malachi lack poetic lines?
assonance rhyme; are rare
in Hebrew Biblical poetry.
an essential formal
of one line
by the content
of the next line
in sense rhythm
The three main types
in biblical poetry
are in each hidden
what secrets cloaked?
