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 ...

kai usage

So, suppose I want to say something like "many dreadful noises" (accusative), would I say it like this:

polla\j deina\j klagga/j

or like this:

polla\j kai\ deina\j klagga/j?

I think I'm supposed to do the latter form....

Thanks.

We who are dead to sin, how yet shall we live in it?

The pronoun threw me off. Any comments would be helpful.
