Future perfect

Implied direct object. (2 Tim. 4:18)

In a sentence that consists of two parts it is common to have the verb omitted from the second part.
1 Tim. 4:18 seems to have this happen with the direct object.
r(u/setai/ me o( ku/rioj a)po\ panto\j e)/gou ponhrou= kai\ sw/sei ei)j th\n basilei/an au)tou= th\n e)poura/nion: me is omitted in the second half of the sentence, but it seems to be the object here as well.

Plurality in translation

Hey everyone, my question is when translating sentences into Greek, with all the different plural cases, when do you use the plural and when do you not? For example, one sentence I have to translate is "But the slave says, "It is not possible to carry so many stones out of the field. So you help!" Now, "stones" of course is translated into the plural acc. b/c it's the DO. But, would you translate "out ...

Traducendi Certamen ( lads, there are Nymphs! )

I have been told that there are some sharp minds here so I decide to post a translating challenge. Him who come sufficiently close I will drop 1.00 GBP via paypal. Apart from whiteoctave because that's not fair, or benissimus as he has probably seen it before. It is just a randomly selected few relatively simple lines. It is short but translation must be sound.

*re: the last sentence, you must be aware ...

didnt find this lot too difficult:

1. If the children prefer learning to running, Fronto is ready to teach them.
si liberi discendum currendo praeferunt, Fronto paratus est eos docere.

2. If the barbarians were silent, the praetors sent the wisest ambassadors to learn what was happening.
