The fact that a language is compiled doesn't mean it cannot be
dynamic. Lua itself is compiled, even if only to bytecode. But LuaJIT
compiles to bytecode and then translate the same bytecode to machine
instructions (the bare metal). Lisp languages have been compiled to
machine code for more than 30 years. Today there are very good Common
Lisp and Scheme compilers that generate very good machine code
directly. There are also those that compile to C, effectively using it
as an intermediate language.
