Hello brother, I'm a filipino, and I admire your faithfulness to the Scripture and I can rely on your knowledge in arcing. 

I just would like to ask regarding this arc. 

Will it be also correct to put Idea-explanation for verses 7 & 8?...I noticed that the 2 verses have same content..

Is it also okay to put IDEA for verse 11a and EXPLANATION for verses 9&10..

and then IF for v.9 to 11a and THEN for 11b..

and then make the whole verses 9,10&11 as GROUND of verses 7&8..
