Jonah’s Psalm


  1. This poem of Jonah is not only appropriate to Psalms by its content but also by form. For, it, as well as the Psalms contain both the syllables meter (and on the syllables meter see my blog in the “website” field). The specific syllables meter of this poem is 7->5->5, and the endings of the lines after this pattern are in free meter. So that we can conclude that this poem is similar to the Psalms (i.e. have syllables meter) yet a bit different (i.e. having free meter endings of lines).
