Latin translation from Greek

Postby reptilia5 » Sat Mar 15, 2014 7:37 pm

Salvete omnes. So I'm looking into a Koine Greek program for my son and this was an example that was used:

Χαίρετε ἐν κυρίῳ πάντοτε: πάλιν ἐρῶ, χαίρετε.

I decided to put my Latin grammar and vocabulary to a test and attempt a translation. Here is what I have come up with:

Semper in Dominvm exsvlta: itervm exsvlta dico.

My Greek vocabulary is extremely small and my knowledge of Greek grammar is microscopic at best. However I believe I am at least 48% correct in the Latin translation. Thanks to any and all who can help me out with this one.

Χαῖρε, ὦ φίλε. Ὁ δὲ ἅγιος Παῦλος οὐκ ἑνὶ ἐλάλουν, ἀλλὰ πολλοῖς.



Salve, amice. Sanctus autem Paulus non uni loquebatur, sed multis.
