Enclosed you will find a zip file of 2Timothy chapter 3. The file is a Greek sentence diagram built using a modified Reed/Kellogg method of "Stick" diagramming. The diagram is built using L3 but easily converts to L4.

One important feature of this diagram is the TOV, my personal Greek to English translation:


            3  You can be certain of this- in the last days there will be terrifying times. People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, callous, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, haters of good, traitorous, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having the outward appearance of godliness but denying its true reality. Avoid such people. For among them are those who worm their way into homes and gain control over weak, submissive women who are overwhelmed by their sins and are easily swayed by all sorts of desires, always learning but they never come to know the truth. And just as Jannes and Jambres opposed Moses, so also these men oppose the truth, men of depraved minds, who, as far as the faith is concerned, are rejected. But they will not get very far because, as in the case of those two men, their folly will be obvious to everyone.

            You however have carefully followed my teaching, my way of life, my purpose, faith, patience, love, endurance, as well as the persecutions and other horrible things I suffered in Antioch, Iconium and Lystra. Oh, the persecutions I have endured and yet, the Lord rescued me from all of them! The fact is, everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution. Evil and unscrupulous con men will go from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived. You however, must remain faithful to the things you have been taught and believed, knowing those whom you learned from, and how from infancy you have known the Holy Scriptures that are able to give you wisdom that leads to salvation, through faith in Christ Jesus. All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful for teaching, rebuking error, correcting and training in righteousness so the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.

Terry!   *smile*                    Peace to you!                           ........and! .......

                                                                                    Always Joy in the Lord!

          I do indeed remain thankful for this and all other sentence diagrams you have shared.  My Pastor was over to visit me a couple of days ago; and we checked out various items on my L4 including one of your sentence diagrams.  He also liked the sentence diagramming!              *smile*

                Also, I know it's not likely that you will publish the TOV!    *smile*          However, it is quite a good translation; and I enjoy comparing with other translations and the original Greek!

Finally .............    Indeed!   and Indeed!   sDg

Philippians 4:  4 Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, Rejoice. 5 Let your reasonableness be known to everyone. The Lord is at hand..........
