I'm using a Bible program to read the Bible in greek. It is the e-sword:
http://www.e-sword.net

The greek text has some letters showing what kind of word is there... Like V-PPI-3S. I imagine that this means that the word is a verb in present passiv indicative, third person singular... I want to know if there is a table of the meanings of all these codes...

But the main question is about Heb 9:23. There ...

"PAS HO PISTEUON" = IS A NOMINATIVE PRESENT PARTIC

I) "WHOEVER BELIEVES" IS A NOMINATIVE PRESENT PARTICIPLE PORTRAYING A SINGLE MOMENT OF BELIEVING AND NOT A CONTINUOUS ONE

Dr. Dan Wallace on ho pisteuon

I have question I just got done reading this excerpt from Dr. Dan Wallace's Greek Grammar Beyond the Basics and wanted to get a second opinion so to speak on whether his conclusions are spot on.

the Sabbath

Mark 1:21 reads in part, ...και ευθυς τοις σαββασιν εισελθων....
σαββατον, being second declension, would seem to me to be declined as follows: σαββατο(the root) + ις(plural,dative,neuter) giving σαββατοις. Instead it looks like third declension using σιν(plural,dative,neuter). What am I missing?
Thanks for any help.
