Saying kaparos this year, I noticed that Iyov 33:24, which is included in the rite, has all its words mil'el, i.e. with the penultimate rather than the ultimate syllable stressed. (Most words in Hebrew have ultimate stress; in Tanach, the rest have penultimate stress.) That got me wondering: What other entire verses have every word with penultimate stress?

  • Kind of similar: simanim points out that the pasuk ושמרתם מצותי in rishon of שור או כשב has a mafsik on every word. – Heshy Oct 21 '18 at 0:24
  • בפקודיך אשיחה ואביטה ארחתיך. דרך פקודיך הבינני ואשיחה בנפלאותיך Seems likely there are a fair amount of others. Can you include some reason to think someone already put together a complete list or that it's worth investing our time to do so? If you're just curious if others exist, then the above should be a sufficient answer. – Double AA Oct 21 '18 at 1:41
