Continuing the story

Continuing from the prior post on 2 Chronicles 25, the parable of the thorn has identical music in both this chapter and 2 Kings 14. Does this mean it really is punctuation or just a well known ballad?

2 Chronicles 25:18
e tar,B e rev,B e zar,seg,ger,B rev,tal,ger,C qad,z-q,e f g# ^A e tar,C qad,B z-q,g# e 2
2 Kings 14:9
e tar,B e rev,B e zar,seg,ger,B rev,tal,ger,C qad,z-q,e f g# ^A e tar,C qad,B z-q,g# e 2

This coding is something I display as I read so I can plug the string into a query to see if there are other matches that are worth looking at.

The words have slight differences (e.g. the different spelling of the king's name Joash/Jehoash), but the shape of the music is identical. It is possible in principal to compare multiple verses for similar shapes with a program like Beyond Compare or its equivalent.

2 Kings 14:9 = 2 Chronicles 25:18 except for the northern king's name
