Hebrew Parallelism

Hebrew poetry makes use of a literary device called parallelism, a thought rhyme in which the second line of a section echoes or reiterates the thought of the first line.

Bless the Lord, O my soul,

   and all that is within me, bless his holy name. (NRSV)

These two lines carry the same thought.
