Things That Don’t Go Together

This is a subsidiary post of Grammatical, Syntactical, and Idiomatic Structures in the Scriptures.

Here are words that normally do not go with each other.  That is, their meanings oppose one another; they’re usually antonyms.   Minimally, the presence of one idea is inconsistent with the presence of the other.  That is, they are not the same thing!
