I can’t figure out what logic was used to decide which words to italicize in the Bible. I would assume it is to add empahasis, but the word choice appears pretty random. Reading it with emphasis on the italicized words makes it sound pretty bizaare, IMHO. You get things like “He is the Word and the Light and the Truth.” Or is my sense of “rhythym” out of whack and it sounds perfectly fine to you?
“Happiness is nonetheless true happiness because it must come to an end, nor do thought and love lose their value because they are not everlasting.”
- Bertrand Russell
