A master summary of Bible Time Accounting Meter import, is in pages 1-5 at brainout.net(/)Ephesians1REPARSED(.)doc . That doc covers Paul's meter, which is the most sophisticated of all. PP4-5 contain all links to associated videos and webpages, except the Magnificat. The latter I just learned, and is a new playlist on my brainouty Youtube channel. Turns out Paul's meter is based on Mary's; both seem to use Roman AUC to plot their meters: it's their own Anno Domini (so either means Christ was born at the end of 4BC or 2BC, depending on which AUC they use). You need Bibleworks fonts to read the doc.
There are 30 rules or characteristics in a Time Poem (for lack of a better term) that make analysis, self-auditing. So parsing mistakes stick out; helps one properly diagnose whether a passage really is a Time Poem. One day I'll write up a doc about the rules. Still discovering them right now, within each text.
I plot Bible Meter in 'brainouty' Youtube videos. BHS Isaiah 53 Meter syllable groups: 42 (Isa52:13-14), 35 (v15), 56 (53:1-2), 70 (v3-4, each 35), 56 (v5-6), 70 (v7-8), 28 (v9), 35 (v10), 28 (v11), 42 (v12).
Matt 1 keys off 42 to make honor roll of 42 generations. Luke 3 keys 35 to make 77 sons (42+35). Isaiah keys off Psalm 90 @63 (v1-3), 84 (v1-4), then three 70's (v5-8, 9-11,12-15), with a final 56 (v16-17). Dan9's explicit 490 derives from meter. So too Magnificat, Eph1:3-14 (via GNT). There are many more.
It's a genre: TIME meters syntactically divisible by 7. Meter interacts with text (as in Dan9). 1 consonantal sound + 1 vowel sound = 1 syllable = 1 year. No additions; subtract only for elision. Time is accounted backward then forward full-circle from Adam's Fall to a scheduled (pre-Church) Millennium, had Israel accepted Christ. Since she didn't, NT meters stop @62nd week (Eph1:3-14 = 434 syllables).
Has anyone else recognized this meter system? Thank you for your time.
