Synonymous Parallelism

  The 2nd line repeats the thought of the 1st line in different words.


 Examples

 Psalm 2:4.

     He who sits in the heavens laughs,
     The Lord scoffs at them.

  Psalm 2:9.
     You shall break them with a rod of iron,
     You shall shatter them like earthenware.

[all of the above is a direct quote from Module 7, BE 101, Parallelism Handout, 2]
