  1. From Ruth
    Is there a wider chiasm?

    Ps 118:14-21

    A 14 art become my salvation
    B 15 the voice of rejoicing in the tabernacle of the righteous
    C 17 I shall not die but live and declare the works of the LORD
    C’ 18 the LORD hath chastened me sore but he hath not given me over unto death
    B’ 19, open to me the gates of righteousness, I will go into them and I will praise the LORD 20 this gate of the LORD into which the righteous shall enter
    A’ 21 art become my salvation

    C’. the right hand of the LORD doeth valiantly.
    B’.(17) I shall not die, but live, and declare the works of the LORD.
    A’.(18) The LORD hath chastened me sore: but he hath not given me over unto death.
