Participles: which case do I use?

I can't figure out when to make a participle agree with the sujbect, the object or when to make the whole thing an ablative absolute. I'm going through N&H's composition book, and the solutions seem random. For example, I know that when the participial phrase shares neither subject nor object with the main clause, then I use the ablative absolute, but N&H used it when the clauses do share a subject (D below).

Absolutes

I believe in an absolute right and wrong.

I don't believe that truth changes with people's perceptions of it.

I also believe that the majority of the civilized and educated world will disagree with me.

relative seldom repeated

Goodwin & Gulick 1039 say 'A relative is seldom repeated *in a new case* in the same sentence. Either it is omitted and understood in the latter part of the sentence, or a personal or demonstrative pronoun takes its place.' -- but they give only a few examples.

Does anyone know of a fuller treatment?

Many thanks

Matthew 2:20

I'm a bit confused by the verb (I hate this verb :evil: ) here:

teqnh/kasin ga\r zhtou~ntes th\n yuxh\n tou~ paidi/ou

have the jealous/envious killed the spirit of the child? it seems odd, yet to say they have been killed by the spirit of the child makes even less sense, both in the story and grammatically.
please help!
