I make this my mainpoint since 10a sums up “love” in 9h and “does no wrong” in 9a-g (specifically 9b-e)
I arced 8a & 8b first to have a combined meaning: “owe to love each other” For me, it needs to be combined since the subordinate 8c-10 means “fulfilling the law through love” “Fulfilling” seems to be directly related with “owing”
I followed your advice kuya that 9h could be an Interpretaion or summary of 9a-g (fact)

I agree with your dot note on 8a-b, that they are summarized as "Owe love to each other." Well done.
Brent Karding
I like your improvements! The only thing that isn't quite right, I think, is that 10b should be the Inference of 10a, and then all of 10 should be the third piece of the Bilateral. It is all of 10, not just 10b, that is the Inference from 9, and says the same thing as 8c.

kuya, I hope it's fine with you that I still express my observation in verse 10.

As for me kuya, if I connect 10a to 10b first, I think the relationship between v.9 and v.10 will change. It will probably become Id-explanation if I'm not mistaken kuya, since the thought in v.9 about not doing wrong to others- list is also present in v.10a..so I think v.9 and v.10 will look like Id-explanation to me than part of a bilateral kuya. :-)
Brent Karding
Yes, 10a is saying a similar thing to 9. It's a summary of sorts of 9. I think your thoughts are valid, and that it would be fine to leave it as it is. It's a hard decision to make!
Mildred Codilla-Salilig
These verses are tricky kuya. Thank you for guiding.
Brent Karding
You're welcome!

Kuya, can you please check my edited version of the arc?

I put my thoughts in the DOT NOTE on why I arced it that way.

Thank you kuya for the support.
Brent Karding
I would say that these three arcs aren't all saying the same thing. Rather, 9 is grounding 8, starting with "for." But I think 9 is grounding only 8c specifically, so that 9 should be arced as part of the Ground.

And even though 10 is very similar to 8, it is specifically reacting to 9h, with its use of "neighbour." 10 sums up the whole argument. Maybe we could say that 8c and 10 are the two Inferences of verse 9 - thus a Bilateral. Thoughts?
Brent Karding
Good work in verse 9! That was a tricky verse. The only thing I'm not sure about is Gn-Sp. It doesn't fit the definition. The only other one I can think of is Fact-Interpretation: 9a-g is the "fact," and 9h is the "interpretation" of those facts, a summary of them.
