No. This verse is a sentence fragment, continuing from the previous verse, 
where you'll find the verb. It's the sort of thing we would handle in English 
with a dash. The same goes for the following verse, although the marker is not 
included there, probably because it governs both phrases.
>Would the sentence mean the same without it?

Generally speaking, yes, although it does help to signal the grammatical 
connection between this verse and what precedes it.
