<x-flowed>Looking at 1 Peter 3, in Greek and English, I notice that the printed
editions of both the NRSV and the NJB, choose to follow the layout of N/A
27 in indenting -- and italicizing -- vv. 10-12, as befits a Psalm quotation,

But when it comes to vv. 18-19, neither English version makes any
typographical distinction, whereas N/A 27 again indents ( without
italicization, this time ).

It's only a small point, but have you any idea why N/A should indent vv. 18-19?

I know that a connection can be made between:
>>19 in which also he went and made a proclamation to the spirits in
prison, <<
( i.e the "descent of Jesus" ) and passages from 1 Enoch; however, N/A 27
has several marginal citations, ( including 2 from Enoch ) to vv. 18-19
and normally it indents only for a single quotation ( as in the case of
the Psalm )
