And they spoke to him, saying, “No, but we will bind, yes, bind you, and give you into their hand, but kill—we will not kill you.” So they bound him with two new ropes and brought him up from the rock. Bible see other translations

“bind, yes, bind.” The text uses the figure of speech polyptoton for emphasis.
