There are two COMPARISON / CONSTRASTS in this split ALTERNATION:

1) In A and A′, there is good consistency between these. The temple is God′s temple and the Holy Spirit dwells there. See also 2 Corinthians 6:15,16 to see that Christ, the living God, also lives there.

2) B and B′ are a CONTRAST; the first is about destroying that temple when it has been abandoned while the second looks at glorifying that temple because it has been purchased for a price.

3) The CONCLUDING SUMMARY implores us to glorify God in our bodies.
