Biblical poetry (especially in the Old Testament) does not rhyme, but it does use parallelism: ideas are repeated with synonyms or contrasted with antonyms.  What examples do you see in #6-20?

  •  Circle related clusters of ideas (e.g. v. 6-8)

 

  • Write down what idea these clusters advance. (e.g. v. 6-8 are related to enthusiasm.)

 

  • Why are such side by side comparisons helpful?

 

Who is talked about in these verses?

  • List them
  • Summarize what it says about them

  • Which you like the most

 

  • Which is hardest to keep
