Here is the text from my source: Cyclopedic Indexed bible - Strong's expended Concordance
(the text goes on to explain how the allegory works.)
The online version for verse 24 might look something like this: From Bible gateway
(in this version they are saying it just in the wording and how those words are interpreted.)
From Merriam Webster:Figurative * of words, language, etc. : used with a meaning that is different from the basic meaning and that expresses an idea in an interesting way by using language that usually describes something else : not literal
: showing people and things in a way that resembles how they really look : not abstract
Note: Allegory are abstract!
Notice in addition the words "are being taken figuratively" it makes it seem unclear as oppose to the definite statement "which things are an allegory"
By myself I'm a movement, with you I'm a force!
