Matthew 12:33-37
n “Either make the tree good
and its fruit good,
or make the tree bad
and its fruit bad,
o for the tree is known by its fruit.
p You brood of vipers!
How can you speak good,
q when you are evil?
r For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks.
r The good person out of his good treasure brings forth good,
and the evil person out of his evil treasure brings forth evil.
I tell you,
s on the day of judgment
t people will give account for u every careless word they speak,
for v by your words you will be justified,
and by your words you will be condemned.”
I think v.36 is expounded in v.37..the words GIVE ACCOUNT (v.36) is translated as BEING JUSTIFIED and BEING CONDEMNED (v.37)
Alternative akong gi’use ani kay dili man pwede both 37a &37b kay mahitabo sa isa ka’tao..isa raman jud mahitabo sa iya..
In v.35, BRINGS FORTH is similar to speaking out of the abundance (34b)
I tell you that people will be judged on judgment day.
What the heart is filled, the mouth spilled.
Evil vipers can not speak good.
I think EITHER OR is a conjunction that pertains to Alternative
At first I can see that it is a GROUND because of the conjunction FOR.. But if I use GROUND, then it would sound like this: “ what you make with the tree (good or bad) will be revealed in its fruits (good or bad) BECAUSE the tree is known by its fruits” It’s almost the same kuya. A restatement kuya.
The tree is known by its fruit
I make v.33 about tree being known by its fruit as a COMPARISON for v.34 the evil that cannot speak good because v.33 tells something about an object, and I believe that objects are used for comparing.
I use PROGRESSION here kuya because in greek interlinear it uses FURTHER. And if I use INFERENCE, it would sound like this: “you evil cannot speak good THEREFORE I tell you that people will be judged in the last day” (This seems awkward) So I use PROGRESSION kuya, it sounds like this: “you evil cannot speak good, FURTHER I tell you that people will be judged in the last day”

Very good arc, Mildred!
Mildred Queenie CS
Yehey! Thank you so much for the guidance kuya.
Brent Karding
I tell you,
I agree with you about Progression here. Good choice!
Mildred Queenie CS
Thanks kuya.
Brent Karding
For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks.
Notice the close connection between 34b-c and 34d: speaking. So I'd say that 34d-35b connects with 34 as its Ground, not with all of 33-34.
Mildred Queenie CS
Oh,I have not noticed that both v.34 & v.35 have a common denominator or common word that makes a close connection between them kuya.
Brent Karding
“Either make the tree good
Very good choices of Alternative and Cf.
Mildred Queenie CS
Thank you kuya.
Brent Karding
for the tree is known by its fruit.
I read your explanation of Id-Exp in 33, Mildred, but I still think Ground is better. "Making the tree good will make its fruit good, because you can tell the quality of a tree by its fruit." The latter is a principle, the reason why making the tree good will make its fruit good too.
Mildred Queenie CS
Yes kuya. I’m not sure what to call with v.33 kuya, because it is not an imperative, it is more like a comment or something, how do you call it kuya?
Mildred Queenie CS
I’ve learned that v.34c is called a logical truth kuya, I think.
