Adding Diacritical Marks to Greek Texts

The following two texts are from the image above. They are without diacritical marks. Can someone add diacritical marks to the two below texts so that they may correspond to the texts in the scanned copy?

A.: “Και φυτευσει την σκηνην του πραιτωριου αυτου 'Απεδνω μεταξυ των θαλασσων εν ορει ενδοξω και αγιω, και ηξει εως τελους αυτου.”

Σ.: “Και εκτενει τας σκηνας του ιπποστασιου αυτου μεταξυ των θαλασσων εις το ορος της δυναμεως το αγιον, και ηξει εως ακρου αυτου.”

1) Καὶ φυτεύσει τὴν σκηνὴν τοῦ πραιτωρίου αὐτοῦ Ἀπεδνὼ μεταξὺ τῶν θαλασσῶν ἐν ὄρει ἐνδόξῳ καὶ ἁγίῳ, καὶ ἥξει ἕως τέλους αὐτοῦ.
Ῥήθεντα ὑπὸ τοῦ μεγάλου ῥήτορος Δονάλδου Τρᾶμπ·

"Ἡμᾶς μὲν δεῖ τεῖχος οἰκοδομῆσαι, αὐτὸ δὲ ταχέως οἰκοδομηθῆναι."
"Συνίημι τοὺς λόγους. Ἔχω δὴ τοὺς ἀρίστους λόγους."
"Ὀλίγόν μοι ἐδανείσεν ὁ πατήρ, ἑκατομύριον δολάρια."
"Μοι δὲ ἀρέσκουσι οἱ μὴ ζωγρηθέντες."

Thank you. I do not know how to add diacritical marks in Microsoft Word, since I do not use the Greek language.

There is lots of support for typing polytonic Greek online. I found some interesting discussion online with people having difficulty setting up a polytonic Greek keyboard for Win10, but I found the instruction below still worked quite well for my Win10 computers:

If you have a Mac,

What I like about doing it on a Mac is that if you can't remember some of the odder combinations, you can use the single keys, such as alt-i for iota subscript and [ for a circumflex and it works just fine.
