Repeated Words and Phrases in KJV

Just working on repeated words and phrases in the Bible Repeated phrases in the Word of God speak of emphasis, finality, intensity and completion. Repetition… Repetition

The Lord focuses on 2 or 3 witnesses…

Gen 41:32 dreams doubled
Deu 19:15 2 or 3 witness
John 8:17 2 or 3 witness

There is also a word for this …

I’m sure there are more. I’ll add them as I stumble onto them…
