/* Second example */ linked [[paronomasia]]
An amplification of the text that states, "He came and lived in a city called Nazareth; that it might be fulfilled which was spoken through the prophets: “He will be called a Nazarene.” Luke 2:39; Matthew 2:23; Isaiah 11:1; Jeremiah 23:5 and 33:15; Zechariah 3:8 and 6:12<blockquote>When they had accomplished all things that were according to the law of the Lord, they returned into Galilee, to their own city, Nazareth. He came and lived in a city called Nazareth; that it might be fulfilled which was spoken through the prophets: “He will be called a Nazarene” (which means "Branch"). As it is written in Isaiah, "A shoot will come out of the stock of Jesse, and a branch out of his roots will bear fruit." And in Jeremiah, “'Behold, the days come,' says Yahweh, 'that I will raise to David a righteous Branch',” and “In those days and at that time, I will cause a Branch of righteousness to grow up to David.” And Zechariah: "Behold, I will bring out my servant, the Branch"; “Behold, the man whose name is the Branch: and he shall grow up out of his place; and he shall build Yahweh’s temple”</blockquote>
A marginal note explains the ''[[paronomasia]]'' or biblical word-play on the name "Nazareth" as related to the Hebrew words for "branch", ''netzer'', and for "nazirite", ''nazir''.
