My question was regarding the and that had been added between the verbs in
the infinitive and the participle.  Of course, to belongs with un loose,
that is the infinitive.  Where does the conjunction belong?  As I am
observing the KJV translation style, I am thinking the conjunction should be
tagged with the participle.  They seem to translate the participle with this
style in many places.
