     division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart. 
    – Division of soul and spirit
    – Division of joints and marrow
    – Discernins the Thoughts and intentions

    Division- two separate. Not necessarily equal.
    Discern- whether a thing is good, evil, or may even transcend the limiting notion of duality.

    Duality- an instance of opposition or contrast between two concepts or two aspects of something; a dualism.

    Joints and marrow.

    Joints- are the areas where 2 or more bones meet. Most joints are mobile, allowing the bones to move. Joints consist of 7 things in order to function properly.

    Marrow- a soft fatty substance in the cavities of bones, in which blood cells are produced (often taken as typifying strength and vitality)

    Therefore, two ‘independent’ things in three separate categories.
    Category 1
    Division of the soul
    Division of the spirit
    Category 2
    Division of the joints
    Division of the marrow
    Category 3
    Discern the thoughts
    Discern the intention

    Category 3 is interesting. Why are they not mentioned and not included in Trichotamy or Dichotamy?

    Maybe spirit and soul are actually a Category as body is for joints and marrow.

    Thoughts and intentions. They are actions resulting from emotion, right? Or not?
    The heart is not ignored in scripture.
