2 Corinthians 1:3-11
You help us by prayer
We set our hope in His deliverance.
To make us rely on God.
We don’t want you to be ignorant of our severe affliction.
Our hope for you is unshaken.
Our affliction is for your comfort.
We share in comfort in Christ.
Celebrating devine comfort.
Deliverance from affliction.
f Blessed be the g God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and h God of all comfort ,
i who comforts us in all our affliction,
so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction,
with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.
For as we share abundantly in j Christ’s sufferings,
so through Christ we share abundantly in comfort too. 1
k If we are afflicted,
it is for your comfort and salvation;
and if we are comforted,
it is for your comfort,
which you experience
when you patiently endure the same sufferings that we suffer.
Our hope for you is unshaken,
for we know that
as you l share in our sufferings,
you will also share in our comfort.
For we do not want you to be unaware, brothers, 1 of m the affliction we experienced in Asia.
For we were so utterly burdened beyond our strength
that we despaired of life itself.
Indeed, we felt that we had received the sentence of death.
But that was to make us n rely not on ourselves
o but on God
p who raises the dead.
q He delivered us from such a deadly peril,
and he will deliver us.
r On him we have set our hope that he will deliver us again.
s You also must help us
by prayer,
so that many will give thanks on our behalf
t for the blessing granted us
through the prayers of many.

I have noticed kuya that you did not make a comment on the biggest arcs, and also the second bigger arcs..I’m hoping that means it is correct.
Brent Karding
Overall, yes, I'd say they're correct. I'm just looking again, and I'm not sure that 8a and following are an Explanation of all of 3-7. I agree that it's an explanation, but I think it is connected to a smaller unit, like perhaps 7.
Mildred Queenie CS
This is hard kuya. If v.8-11 is indeed series, then the mainpoints are: (a) we don’t want you to be unaware of our affliction. (b) you also must help us by prayer. In this case, it is hard to find out as to where it will be connected next.
Mildred Queenie CS
Thanks kuya. This comments help a lot.
Brent Karding
Excellent work in verse 11. I would only say that Ac-Pur is better than Ac-Res, since surely the statement of many giving thanks would motivate the Corinthians to give, so that other people's thankfulness would be the purpose of their giving.
Mildred Queenie CS
I thought it is Ac-res kuya because when I look-up for the conjunction “so that”, the meaning refers to a Result. I’m a little bit confused kuya as to when to follow the meaning of the word and the meaning through context clues. I’m sorry kuya.
Brent Karding
Yes, result is one possibility. But purpose is also possible with "so that." The key is to look at whether the Action has a motivation behind it, thus Purpose.
Mildred Queenie CS
Yes kuya, I will remember it. Motivation.
Brent Karding
Indeed, we felt that we had received the sentence of death.
Verse 9 isn't the Purpose of 8b-c, since 9a doesn't fit as part of a purpose. But 9b-d is the Purpose of 9a. It would be better to have Id-Exp to relate 8b-c to 9.
Mildred Queenie CS
Wow, this is a nice thought kuya.
Brent Karding
The rest of verses 3-7 are very good! I like your Ac-Res in 5-6, and your Inference in 5-7.
Mildred Queenie CS
Thanks kuya!
Brent Karding
and if we are comforted,
6a-b and 6c-f are contrasted, with affliction and comfort in each section. Thus Neg-Pos would be a good choice.
Mildred Queenie CS
Yeah, I only see it now.
Brent Karding
If we are afflicted,
I would call this an Ac-Res, since the result of Paul's affliction is the "comfort and salvation" of the Corinthians. Same with 6c-f.
Mildred Queenie CS
Yes kuya.
