We have explained in our article

that the Biblical Author indicates bold, italics, underline by using
repetition. In other words if a modern author wanted to emphasize
a word they would either underline, bold or italicize it. However when the Biblical
author wishes to emphasize a word He repeats it. The effect - whether
thru repetition or using underline - is the same. It is only the
means of conveying this emphasis that is different.
Joseph's dream of the standing sheafs
for, behold, we were binding sheaves in the field, and, lo,
my sheaf arose, and also stood upright; and, behold, your sheaves came round about, and bowed down to my sheaf.'
Note the repetition indicated by the underlined words.
This repetition creates an unspecified emphasis. Rashi
The phrase arose and also stood upright connotes a permanant standing
in which the sheaf remains standing. (An ordinary object, stood up, would
fall if its center of gravity was high enough...so the dream showed a standing
that remained without subsequent falling).
Advanced Rashi: Undoubtedly, the permanant standing connotes
the non-transient reign of Joseph.
