For this is how the holy women who hoped in God used to adorn themselves,
by submitting to their own husbands,
as Sarah obeyed Abraham,
q calling him lord.
And you are her children,

and r do not fear anything that is frightening.

live with your wives in an understanding way,

since they are heirs with you of the grace of life,
You did very well in verse 7.
Psalm 23
yey..praise God for that kuya.
Brent Karding
as Sarah obeyed Abraham,
The Comparison is only 6a-b; it doesn't include 6c-e, at least in the English. Did you look at the Greek at all? Because 6c starts with a relative pronoun referring back to Sarah, which would then make 6c-e the Explanation of 6a-b - so you're correct in that case. :)
Psalm 23
yes kuya, I look at the pronoun "her".
Brent Karding
I like how you made 5-6 a Ground for all of 1-4, since, as you say, it talks about both adorning and submitting.
Psalm 23
wow,really kuya..I'm so happy that I am now applying a bit of what I've observed in how you do things in arcing..
Brent Karding
In answer to your dot note about the Series in v. 1-4, I think that Id-Exp is just a little better than Series. Here's why: starting with 3a, Paul is talking about "conduct," which is an expansion of his description of "respectful and pure conduct" in 2a-b. So 3-4 is giving further details about 1-2, not making a separate and coordinate point, I'd say.
Psalm 23
yes kuya.. thank you for the correction.
Brent Karding
the braiding of hair
You did well in verses 3-4. The only relationship I don't think can be right is Comparison in 3b-d: Paul isn't clarifying the action of 3a by showing what it is like, but by giving more information, thus Id-Exp.
Psalm 23
oh no! I didn't mean for it to be Cf kuya..it should have been Id-exp..I'm sorry..
Brent Karding
when they see your respectful
Why didn't you choose Temporal here? Just curious. Another possibility is making 2a-b a Ground for both 1d and e.
Psalm 23
I choose the Id-exp in 1e and 2ab kuya because I see that the content of 1e is "conduct" and the content of 2ab is also "conduct". And together I made them the Manner of 1d.
Brent Karding
Yes, the content of both is "conduct," but what is 2a-b saying about the conduct? When I look closer, I think that 2a-b should directly modify both 1d-e. That's because the "when" proposition isn't modifying 1e, but actually 1d! "They may be won... when they see." So 1e could be the Manner of 1d, and then 2a-b a Temporal or Ground phrase modifying both 1d-e.
Psalm 23
that makes sense kuya..I agree to your point kuya..thank you so much for the new teaching.
Brent Karding
You're very welcome!
Brent Karding
Likewise, wives,
1a isn't a proposition - there is no verb. Nor is it a prepositional phrase (which are occasionally divided). Rather, it is an adverb and a description ("wives") of the subject of 1b. So 1a-b should be combined into one proposition.

Same thing with 7a-b, for the same reason.
Psalm 23
hehe..okay kuya..I will note that.
