We have explained in our article
Biblical Formatting located on the world wide web at
that the Biblical Author indicated a bulleted or table
structure by skillful use of repated keywords.
That is, if a modern
author wanted to get a point across using a underline
then the Biblical
Author would use repetition.
We illustrate this using verse
present in modern notation with the
repeating words indicating underline.
God's response to the daughter's of Zelophehad who wanted to inherit their father's property, the issue being that their father had no sons,
The daughters of Zelophehad speak right:
thou shalt give give them a possession of an
inheritance among their father's brethren;
and thou shalt cause the inheritance of their father to pass unto them.
The underlined repeated words from the verse,
give give are the Biblical way of indicating emphasis.
In modern notation the word give would be written
once with an underline. Rashi clarifies the purpose of the emphasis:
They are right generally. Give them
all things related to inheritance:
(a) give them their father's estate (as they requested);
(b) Also give them their portion due in Israel
(All survivors of Egypt received a portion in Isreal).
