<P><FONT SIZE=2>It would seem that the shift from Aorist aspect of the participles in </FONT>
<BR><FONT SIZE=2>verses 4,5, 6a into Present aspect participles in 6b and 6c would be</FONT>
<BR><FONT SIZE=2>significant. Possibly, the Present aspect participles emphasize the ongoing</FONT>
<BR><FONT SIZE=2>activity even continuing right now...right before our eyes.</FONT>

<P><FONT SIZE=2>What is even more interesting about the 2 present participles:</FONT>

<P><FONT SIZE=2>Are they causal indicating &quot;since&quot;?</FONT>

<P><FONT SIZE=2>Are they temporal indicating &quot;while, as long as&quot;?</FONT>

<P><FONT SIZE=2>Are they conditional indicating &quot;if&quot;?</FONT>

<P><FONT SIZE=2>In Robertson's Word Pictures of the New Testament, he</FONT>
<BR><FONT SIZE=2>present active participles.&nbsp; Is that correct?&nbsp; What</FONT>
<BR><FONT SIZE=2>does that mean in context of this verse?&nbsp; Does that</FONT>
<BR><FONT SIZE=2>indicate the time of the action?</FONT>

<P><FONT SIZE=2>Thanks</FONT>
