In this age we have gotten used to certain natural rhythms. We find these rhythms in everything we read. But if everything we read is from this age, we know nothing about the more elevated rhythms that give older writings their power. And it is no wonder, because these rhythms cannot be crafted by following the rules we have today. Today, we are blessed with a number of books that set down guidelines. These guidelines tell us how to best structure our sentences so that readers can easily understand them, and so that they are the most effective. But although these guidelines indeed produce strong writing, they cannot produce the rhythms tbat we find in older prose. For if we choose the least number of words each time, and the most pointed of them, and arrange them in the manner those guidelines dictate, we will always produce the plainest rhythms. Therefore a higher set of guidelines must exist tbat enables us to produce more beautiful ones. And yet, if we look at the King James Bible, we see that the prose is indeed clear, not following the rules completely, but enough to make us wonder if perhaps it has something that violates the natural agreement of words.
