Search Scripture daily!  (Acts 17:11)

This website has been set up to encourage personal Bible discovery by paying attention to the literary structure of Scripture and the flow of thought.  Look out for chiasms in  daily Bible reading – and after that compare with what others have proposed. The website also includes tables on bible echoes.

  1. I like the analysis in the first section of Luke 2. However, the middle can be further structured as follows:
    D. praising God, and saying,
    (14) Glory to God
    in the highest,
    and on earth
    peace,
    good will toward men.

  2. Luke 2;13
    Sorry, I forgot that indentation does not work in comments
    D. praising God, and saying,
    E (14) Glory to God
    F in the highest,
    F and on earth
    E peace,
    D good will toward men.

    This shows a nice comparison between heaven and earth. It also shows that the awkward phrase in English “and on earth peace” is excellent Hebrew poetry.

  3. It would be really helpful to have some sort of rating system for all the various chiasm proposals. That way there would be a mechanism for everyone to offer whether or not they think the proposed chiasm is accurate or not. Maybe a 1-5 star system.
