This ABA ALTERNATION is often quoted to show the origin and value of the Holy Scriptures.

1) The CENTER POINT, that is the B element, contains the main emphasis: all Scripture is inspired by God and valuable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness.

2) Included in this center point is a SUBSTRUCTURE ALTERNATION. In this case, it is similar to a CONJUNCTION LIST using the word for as the separator between each element. Conjunction lists ask the reader to slow down and consider each element separately, savoring each for its own value.
