    @Josué-Pineda Thanks! Id/Exp does seem like the best option. I appreciate your thoughts and reading through your arc. Blessings! -Tim

    I’m studying the Psalms and doing my best to arc them as I go. I understand that arcing may not be the best tool for the Psalms, but it’s what I know. My question is this: what would be the best way to represent intensified parallelism as in Psa 8:3?

    I arced the verse as 3 separate phrases: 1. When I look at your heavens; 2. the work of of your fingers; 3. the moon and the stars, which you have set in place

    In a way, I understand this is a progression that is getting more and more specific. But I also could see this as an Id/Exp. This seems to occur frequently in the psalms and I’m curious how best to represent it. Any thoughts?

    3 When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers,
    the moon and the stars, which you have set in place,
    4 what is man that you are mindful of him,
    and the son of man that you care for him?
    Psalms 8:3-4 ESV

    I’m working through this passage and am trying to decide how the leading questions that Jesus asks Peter should be arced.

    Right now, I’m separating Jesus’ questions in v25 as three separate phrases. 1. What do you think? 2. From whom do the kings take tax? and 3. Do they take from sons or others?
    Is that how you see it, or should there only be two phrases here? Or even 4 by separating the sons and others? I think NASB keeps it to 2 and the ESV has 3.

    Also, how would you arc v26a (And when he said, “From others,”)? My gut reaction is to call it a temporal because of the “when,” as if Matthew isn’t focusing on Peter’s obvious answer but keeping the attention on Jesus’ logic. But it also looks like a Q&A.
