    Each line is synonymous but each additional line adds to the thought of the first making it more specific. The mutuality of the lovers does not imply that they are identical. How do their experiences and descriptions differ? I will not be afraid of ten thousands of people, that have set themselves against me round about".

    Synonymous--the thought of the first line is basically repeated in different words in the second line ; ; For example, the book of Amos, which begins by offering a particular time and location for the prophet's speech Amoscontains a series of oracles that address the audience in the voice of God, as in Amos —2 : "Hear this word that the Lord has spoken against you, O people of Israel, against the whole family that I brought up out of the land of Egypt: You only have I known of all the families of the earth; therefore I will punish you for all your iniquities. Ps 56 above is an example of the genre of individual lament. With trumpets and the blast of a horn shout praise before the King, the Lord.

    Much Western poetry is characterized by meter, rhyme, and lineation. Psalms 9 and 10 should be taken as a single poem by the evidence of the acrostic structure which starts in 9 and finds completion in The peculiar sublimity of the poems of the Old Testament is due partly to the high development of monotheism which finds expression therein and partly to the beauty of the moral ideals which they exalt.

A new sound in Hebrew poetry by Miryam Segal Download PDF Ebook

Informed by a sophisticated understanding of the significance of prosodic developments, as well as by an innate and well trained sensitivity to the music of poetry, Miryam Segal's book will not be bypassed by serious historians of modern Hebrew literature and culture.

For example, the lament psalm typically has the following components in the following order: 1 address to God; 2 complaint; 3 petition; 4 confession of trust in God; and 5 vow of praise to God.

In everyday writing of modern Hebrew, niqqud are absent; however, patterns of how words are derived from Hebrew roots called shorashim or "triliterals" allow Hebrew speakers to determine the vowel-structure of a given word from its consonants based on the word's context and part of speech.
