Psalm 24 9 Meaning Repetition for Emphasis
This repetition, no doubt, is to emphasize what’s being said and heighten the excitement surrounding the entering of the Ark into Jerusalem.
9 [Lift up your heads/Look up], O ye gates;
[even/and] [lift them/rise] up, ye [everlasting/ancient/eternal] doors;
[and/that/then] the [King of glory/majestic king] [shall/may/will] [come in/enter].
|Lift up||your heads||O ye gates|
|even lift up||ye everlasting doors||and the King of glory shall come in|
“Lift, gates, your heads. And lift, ancient doorways. And he will come in, the king of the glory.”Tags: Old Testament Poetry Old Testament Wisdom
