Not much in the way of commentary is necessary. One thought worth noting is that this structure is far less dependent on particles and conjunctions than many of Paul’s other writings (that I have had the chance to study). Compare this structure with one of the Roman’s structures, for example, and you will easily note the differences. I usually highlight the Greek particles and conjunctions in the text, but not in this case. I have posted a handy one page list of Particles & Conjunctions in the “About Me” page (links area). It is based on Wheeler’s Greek Syntax Notes. The student should always pay attention to the Greek particles and conjunctions since these are normally a primary objective and linguistic means the writers use to signal structural transition.
