Palinodia; or Retracting

Resource Toolbox

Approval of one Thing after reproving for another Thing

Pal´-i-noôd´-i-a. Greek, παλινῳδία, a song repeated a second time; hence a retracting of a former one.

The Figure is used when, having spoken against or reproved any person or thing, we speak well of him or it.

Examples may be found in some of the Epistles to the Seven Churches.

Ephesus: Revelation 2:6, after the reproof of verses 4 and 5.

Sardis: Revelation 3:4; Revelation 5:1-14, after the reproof of verse 1.
