Hi all:

Rom 5.18: ARA OUN hWS DI' hENOS PARAPTWMATOS EIS PANTAS ANQRWPOUS EIS
KATAKRIMA, hOUTWS KAI DI' hENOS DIKAIWMATOS EIS PANTAS ANQRWPOUS EIS
DIKAIWSIN ZWHS ...

We have here a complex sentence with an independent clause and a subordinate
comparative clause. Outside of conjunctions and adverbs, we basically have
two strings of prepositional phrases. My question is: What verb or verbs (or
other word(s)) are implied that make sense of the strings of prepositional
phrases? I don't think I have run across anything quite like this before.
The several prepositional phrases don't look like they can all make sense
construed with only one implied verb.
