    Well, a personification is a comparison of a non-human thing to a human quality. SO, tell me, is that personification?

    A simile is a comparison of two unlike things using the words "like or as". So, does that verse use the words like or as?

    I hope you figured your answer out then- it's A. Metaphor is a comparison of two unlike things without using the words like or as.
