Composition Critique needed:

My pastor has been doing a series of dreadfully boring sermons, so to prevent nodding off, I've been trying to translate some of the morning hymns into greek. Can someone critique the following effort?

pas eteros xqonos esti ammos kataduwn



(I haven't learned accents yet)

One question also: where would I place the article in this section
pas eteros xqonos ?
Also, if i wanted to use ...

genitive case question

In my Greek new testament book it has a practice sentance that says;

h glwssa pollwn estin aitia kakwn Meaning, "the tongue is the cause of many evils" but the translation I did was, "the tongue of many is the cause of evils."(which does not make sense anyway.)

But my question is what rules, if any, are available to let me know that pollwn goes with kakwn? Would I know that they form the phrase ...

Is Greek the most exact language?

Greetings and Salutations:

I have often read and heard that Greek (specifically thinking of Ancient or Koine) is the most exact language ever created. I guess my questions would be as follows:

Is that true?

If it's true, then why is that statement true?

If anyone can kindly reply or at the very least point me to a website or book illustrating this notion that Greek is the most (or one of the most) exact ...

new method for learning NT Greek. Feedback desired.

Hello all,

I'm developing a novel way to teach and learn Greek. I have a website where this method can be explored.

http://www3.telus.net/norbertre/index.html

You need a Polytonic Greek unicode font to be able to read the stories. There are links on the site where you can download them.

My approach is to teach paradigms and vocabulary in a story context. The user can interact with controls and select things like plural/singular, 1,2 and 3rd person, ...

Penmanship

The quick sly fox jumped over the lazy brown dog.

That sentence uses every letter in the Eng. alphabet. Does anyone know of a Bible verse in Greek which does the same? This would be helpful for teaching greek penmanship to children.

Anyone here reading the Septuagint?

I started learning Greek in May, and since I enjoy reading the Bible, particularly in Hebrew, I thought trying to read it in Greek while I'm learning would be a lot of fun, and it is!
