Hi guys,

I am looking for a way to find the different ways the Bible use figurative speech to refer to humans in any way. For example:

1 Pet 1:24 "
      All flesh is like grass
      and all its glory like the flower of grass.
      The grass withers,
      and the flower falls"


James 4:14 "For you are a mist that appears for a little time and then vanishes."

any help would be appreciated. Big Smile

I suggest starting by using Bible Browser to explore the Figurative Language data set.

In the main Bible Browser window, expand Figurative Language, then Target. There are various targets that identify humans: Person, Believers, Christian, Disciple, People, etc. Examining these various tagged instances may provide the information you're looking for, or may provide more specificity to create a Figurative Language search.
