comment Saying korbonos
See this related answer to a different question: mi.yodeya.com/questions/1810/repeating-seder-hakitores/… In it, Shalom mentions that the purpose of saying this paragraph is to fill in for the karbanos we are failing to bring.

It would probably be easier to explain why the two whole clauses are parallel than to single out that implied pair. This is how Rash"i explains the פסוק, pointing out that it is impossible to ignore the parallel between the two clauses.
