More Greek Paraphrases of Bible Verses

Postby Markos » Wed Feb 19, 2014 4:54 am

I will use this thread to add more Greek paraphrases of Bible verses as I write them. I hope others will contribute their own efforts here. Corrections are welcome.

Below are 17 Ancient Greek paraphrases of Romans 10:9:
Romans 10:9: ὅτι ἐὰν ὁμολογήσῃς ἐν τῷ στόματί σου κύριον Ἰησοῦν, καὶ πιστεύσῃς ἐν τῇ καρδίᾳ σου ὅτι ὁ θεὸς αὐτὸν ἤγειρεν ἐκ νεκρῶν, σωθήσῃ:

1. τοῖς γὰρ ἀνθρώποις φέρει σωτηρίαν ἡ ὁμολογία καὶ πίστις ἐν τῷ ἐγειράμενον Κύριον Ἰησοῦν.

2. ὁ οὖν λέγων ὅτι Ἰησοῦς ἐστιν Κύριος καὶ πιστεύων ὅτι ὁ πάτηρ ἀνέστησεν τοῦτον ἐκ νεκρῶν σωθήσεται.

3. ἵνα σωθῶμεν, δεῖ ἡμᾶς ὁμολογῆσαι τὸν Κύριον Ἰησοῦν καὶ πιστεῦσαι ἐν τῇ ἀναστάσει αὐτοῦ.

4. ὁμολογήσατε, ἀδελφοί, ἐν τοῖς μὲν χείλεσι ὅτι Ἰησοῦς ὁ κυριότης ἐστίν, ἐν τοῖς δὲ θυμοῖς πιστεύσατε ὅτι Ἰησοῦς ἀνέστη ἐκ νεκρῶν, ὅπως σωθῆτε ὑμεῖς.

5. ὁ Θεὸς σῴσει σε ὁμολογοῦντα καὶ πιστεύοντα ὅτι ὁ Κύριος Ἰησοῦς ἠγέρθη.

6. ἡ σωτηρία ἔρχεται διὰ τῆς γλώσσης τῆς ὁμολογησάσης τὸν ἐγέρθεντα Κύριον καὶ τῆς καρδίας τῆς πιστευσάσης ἐν τῷ ἀνάστει αὐτοῦ.

7. ἐὰν γὰρ σὺ εἴπῃς ἐν τῇ γλώσσῃ σου Χριστόν εἶναι κύριον, καὶ ἐὰν σὺ ἦς πεποιθὼς ἐν τῇ ψυχῇ σου ὅτι ὁ πατὴρ αὐτὸν ἐζωποίησεν, αἰώνιον ζωὴν σὺ ἕξεις!

8. ὁμολογήσωμεν στοματικῶς τὸν κύριον Ἰησοῦν καὶ πιστεύσωμεν καρδιακῶς ἐν τῇ ἀναστάσει ὥστε σωθῆναι.

9. σὺ ὁμολογεῖς Κύριον Ἰησοῦν. εἰς δὲ τὴν ἀνάστασιν πιστεύεις. σέσωσται οὖν.

10. οὐδεὶς ὄψεται τὴν τοῦ θεοῦ βασιλείαν εἰ μὴ, ὁμολογήσας κύριον Ἰησοῦν, πιστεύσῃ ἐν τὴν ἔγερσιν αὐτοῦ.

11. ὅτι ἐὰν συμφωνήσῃς ἔμπροσθεν ἀνθρώπων ὅτι κύριος Ἰησοῦς, καὶ κρίνῃ ἐν τῷ πνεύματί σου ὅτι ὁ θεὸς αὐτὸν ἤγειρεν ἐκ νεκρῶν, οὐκ ἀπολέσεις.

12. σωθήτωσαν, πάντες οἱ ὁμολογήσαντές τε καὶ πιστεύσαντες ὅτι ὁ ἐγερθεὶς Ἰησοῦς Κύριός ἐστιν.

13. τὸ μὲν στόμα ὁμολογεῖ, ἡ δὲ καρδία πιστεύει, ὁ δὲ ἄνθρωπος σῴζεται ἐν τῷ ἐγερθέντι Χριστοῦ.

14. εἰ σὺ, ὁμολογῶν κύριον Ἰησοῦν, πιστεύσειας ἐν τῷ ἀνάστει, σῳθείης ἄν.

15. ὅτι ἐὰν άρνῇ ἐν τῷ στόματί ὅτι Ἰησοῦς οὐκ ἔστιν κύριος, καὶ ἐὰν ἀπιστήσῃ ἐν τῇ καρδίᾳ σου ὅτι ὁ θεὸς αὐτὸν οὐκ ἤγειρεν ἐκ νεκρῶν, ἐλεύσῃ εἰς αἰώνιον κόλασιν.

16. ὅτι ἐὰν φράσῃ ἐν τῇ φωνῇ σου ὅτι πάντῃ πάντα τῷ Ἰησοῦ ὕποχα, καὶ νομίσῃς ἐν ταῖς φρεσί σου ὅτι ἀνέστη ἐκ τοῦ σκοτενοῦ ζόφου τοῦ ᾅδου, ἐκ θανάτου ῥύσθῃ.

17. σὺ οὐ σωθήσῃ πρὶν ἂν ὁμολογήσῃς κύριον Ἰησοῦν. οὐδὲ σωτηρίαν ἕξεις ἕως ἂν πιστεύσῃς ὅτι ὁ θεὸς τὸν Ἰησοῦν ἤγειρεν ἐκ νεκρῶν.
I am writing in Ancient Greek not because I know Greek well, but because I hope that it will improve my fluency in reading. I got the idea for this from Adrianus over on the Latin forum here at Textkit.

καὶ ἔστενεν αὐτὸς Ἰησοῦς ὄμμασιν ἀκλαύτοισιν ἀήθεα δάκρυα λείβων.

Below are 10 Greek paraphrases of Mark 7:27b. Corrections are welcome.
Mk 7:27b: οὐ γάρ καλόν ἐστιν λαβεῖν τὸν ἄρτον τῶν τέκνων καὶ βαλεῖν τοῖς κυναρίοις.


1. καλὸν γὰρ οὐκ ἔστι λαμβόντα τὰ τῶν τεκνίων βρώματα παρέχειν τοῖς κυσί.
2. οὐ γὰρ καθῆκει δοῦναι τὴν βρῶσιν τοῦ παιδὸς τῷ σκύλακι.
3. μὴ λάβῃς τὸν ἄρτον τῶν τέκνων μηδὲ τοῖς κυναρίοις βάλῃς.
4. οὐκ ἐπαινῶ τὸν βαλόντα τοῖς κυναρίοις τὸν τῶν τέκνων ἄρτον.
5. ἐὰν, λαβὼν τοὺς ἄρτους ἐκ τῶν υἱῶν, σὺ βάλοις τοῖς κυσί, καλὸν οὐκ ἂν εἴη.
6. τὰ μὲν τέκνα δέξεται τὸν ἄρτον, τὰ κυνάρια δ' οὔ.
7. οὐ δοτέος τοῖς κύννεσι ὁ τοῦ κληρονόμου ἄρτος.
8. οὐ γάρ ἐστιν καλὸν λαβεῖν τὰ τῶν Ἰουδαίων καὶ τοῖς ἔθνεσι βαλεῖν.
9. τὸ λαβεῖν τὰ δῶρα τῶν ἁγίων καὶ τὸ πέμψαι τοῖς ἁμαρτωλοῖς οὐ δίκαιόν ἐστιν.

Mk 7:27b (Alexandrian:) οὐ γάρ ἐστιν καλὸν λαβεῖν τὸν ἄρτον τῶν τέκνων καὶ τοῖς κυναρίοις βαλεῖν.
