Koine Greek - 3/10/2006

Zack Hubert, the host of zhubert.com, correctly identified the last verse as 1 John 1:9. While his translation is certainly a good one, here is the NASB translation, which is my prefered English translation for Bible study:

If we confess our sins,
He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins
and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

Here is a new verse for this week:

τοὺς δὲ βεβήλους καὶ γραώδεις μύθους παραιτοῦ.
γύμναζε δὲ σεαυτὸν πρὸς εὐσέβειαν:
ἡ γὰρ σωματικὴ γυμνασία πρὸς ὀλίγον ἐστὶν ὠφέλιμος,
ἡ δὲ εὐσέβεια πρὸς πάντα ὠφέλιμός ἐστιν,
ἐπαγγελίαν ἔχουσα ζωῆς τῆς νῦν καὶ τῆς μελλούσης.

This passage is a little longer. It spans two verses of the New Testament. Any takers?
