Koine Greek - 3/2/2006

Several weeks ago, I put up a brief New Testament passage in Koine Greek. It actually got two comments from the outside world, which is a first for me. Only one of the comments tried to decipher the verse, but was off by several verses. Ian quoted 1 John 3:1. I had put in the greek text of 1 John 3:16:

We know love by this, that He laid down His life for us;
and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren. (NASB)

Well - now I am curious whether I can get any more comments from putting in a new verse. Can anyone translate or identify this verse:

ἐὰν ὁμολογῶμεν τὰς ἁμαρτίας ἡμῶν,
πιστός ἐστιν καὶ δίκαιος ἵνα ἀφῇ ἡμῖν τὰς ἁμαρτίας
καὶ καθαρίσῃ ἡμᾶς ἀπὸ πάσης ἀδικίας.

The answer will be posted in a few days.

And if we confess our sins, He is faithful and just (to) forgive us our sins and (to) cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

1 John 1:9
