We have explained in our article
Biblical Formatting located on the world wide web at
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.
the requirement to give charity
illustrates this repetition principle. It states
If there is among you a poor man of one of your brothers inside any of your gates in your land which the Lord your God gives you, you shall not harden your heart, nor shut your hand from your poor brother;
But you shall open your hand wide to him, and shall surely load load him sufficient for his need, in that which he lacks.
Rashi commenting on the repeated underlined words, load, load states
Load him, as indicated, with a charity gift. If he doesn't want a charity
gift load him with a loan. (In other words load in any way possible.)
