I have thought of this for a while and was wondering what literary convention does the following reflect, and why was it used?
Daniel 12:4 - "But you, Daniel, keep the words secret and the book sealed until the time of the end".

“Synonymous Parallelism“ is used in Daniel 12:4. Secrets are concealed, so the phrase in [12:4] “close up the words and seal the book” ( סְתֹ֧ם הַדְּבָרִ֛ים וַֽחֲתֹ֥ם הַסֵּ֖פֶר ) - states the same idea 2 different ways.
