“They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them” (Luke 16:29).

This is a metonomy, because “Moses and the prophets” stands for the writings of Moses and the prophets.

“It is one God, which shall justify the circumcision by faith and the uncircumcision through faith” (Rom. 3:30).

In this metonomy, “circumcision” and “uncircumcision” is another way of saying “Jew” and Gentile.”

“Then went out to him Jerusalem, and all Judea, and all the region round about Jordan, and were baptized of him in Jordan” (Matt. 3:5- 6). It was not the city of Jerusalem that moved, but the people who lived in it.

Also see Genesis 42:38; Proverbs 23:26; Matthew 23:22;Luke 1:46; Ephesians 5:16.
