SWZOMENOIS

In the Bible in 1 Corinthians 1:18, the word "SWZOMENOIS" is an adverbial participle dative plural, right? And it should be translated out as " are being saved?" Is that correct?

well, it could be medium or passive so either: they, who are being saved
they, who are saving
or they, who save
they, who were saved...
all depends on the context in Greek you see...
