1. Repetition of two different phrases: one at the beginning and the other at the end of successive paragraphs.
2. The Repetition of two different Phrases: one at the Beginning and the Other at the End of successive Paragraphs... [see Etymology] The figure is so called when two separate phrases are repeated, one at the beginning and the other at the end of successive sentences or paragraphs. When only the words are thus repeated, the figure is called Symploce, which is repeated Epanadiplosis. It is a combination of Anaphora and Epistrophe; but affecting phrases rather than single words. (Bullinger, 364)
1. O give thanks unto the Lord; for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.
