Synthetic Parallelism

  The 2nd line repeats the thought of the 1st line in different words plus adds a
         conclusion or completes the sense of the 1st line.
  The relationship is supplementary.


  Psalm 95:6.
     Come, let us worship, and bow down,
     Let us kneel before the Lord our Maker.

[all of the above is a direct quote from Module 7, BE 101, Parallelism Handout, 3]
