cubibobi is quite right.
To make it easier, I must have copied the English translation somewhere else and made revisions to it. You can see that at the start of #4:
“Further, great king, with the removal of vitakka/vicāra (but savitakka/savicāra remain),..”
At the second jhana, you get rid of any kāma and akusala thoughts.
– But nekkamma and kusala thoughts remain. Those will remain from that point on.
I need to revise the original post to make this clear. Thanks to TripleGemStudent for pointing that out.

That is right. All sankhara are anicca nature. But we need to cultivate “punnabhisankhara” and “kusala-mula sankhara” until we get to the Arahant stage.
– Note that punnabhisankhara AUTOMATICALLY BECOME kusala-mula sankhara as one comprehends Tilakkhana/Paticca Samuppada/Four Noble Noble Truths.
P.S. I just revised #4 of the post, “Jhānic Experience in Detail – Sāmaññaphala Sutta (DN 2)”
