“There Shall Be Stink”

Brant Gardner

Literary analysis: Contrasting with the list of excessive ornamentation is the cursing that is also a list of cursings. Thus the lists versified into 18-23 matches thematically and literarily with the list that is contained in the single verse 24. The meaning is still the same. The excess will lead to a cursing, and the list of cursings indicates that the cursing will be commensurate with the sin.
