Trying to explain my arcing to a friend... After splitting the passage into the individual propositions I began to arc them, starting with easier ones and then wrestling with how the other ones connected. In 1a his basic statement is: Therefore every one of you who judges has no excuse. Then in 1b-2b he gives us the reason or grounds for this statement (as in the reason why we have no excuse). In 1b-1c he says that the result of the action of passing judgment is that we condemn ourselves (so 1b and 1c are arced together as an action result pair). Then in 1d he explains that the reason or the grounds for this condemnation is that “you, the judge, practice the very same things.” So in summary: 1b is the action , 1c is the result ; and 1d is the reason or grounds for why we are condemned for our action. And all of that, 1b-1d , is further explaining his original statement 1a , that we have no excuse. Now what about 2a-2b ? Initially I thought it might be the start of an independent thought. But upon further reflection I came to the conclusion that it is a further reason or grounds for the fact that we are condemning ourselves. He says that “we know” as in, this is not new information nor a surprise to us. Since we KNOW that God judges those who practice those things, it is further grounds for our condemnation and is therefore also included in the arc which is the grounds for why we have no excuse.

ground

that the judgment of God rightly falls on those who practice such things.
ideaexplanation
[...] O man
--you who judge those who practice such things
and yet do them yourself--
situationresponse
[Do you suppose] that you will escape the judgment of God?
Or do you presume on the riches of his kindness and forbearance and patience,
not knowing that God's kindness
is meant to lead you to repentance?

alternative
But because of your hard and impenitent heart
you are storing up wrath for yourself
on the day of wrath when God's righteous judgment will be revealed.
inference
temporal
He will render to each one according to his works:
to those who seek for glory and honor and immortality
[by patience in well-doing],
he will give eternal life;
but for those who are self-seeking
and do not obey the truth,
but obey unrighteousness,
negativepositive
series
there will be wrath and fury.
There will be tribulation and distress
for every human being who does evil,
the Jew first and also the Greek,
but glory and honor and peace
for everyone who does good,
the Jew first and also the Greek.
For God shows no partiality.
