measureless vs. immeasurable

< Previous | Next >

You would measure time the measureless and the immeasurable.
You would adjust your conduct and even direct the course of your spirit according to hours and seasons.
Of time you would make a stream upon whose bank you would sit and watch its flowing.

The Prophet
by Kahlil Gibran

Do 'measureless' and 'immeasurable' mean the same thing?
Is the juxtaposition of both only intended for emphasis?
Please help. Thank you.
