Exercise 6 Adjectives

Translate, parse the underlined words, and explain the function of the adjectives used.

1. John 12:48 ὁ λόγος ... κρινεῖ (he/she/it will judge) αὐτὸν ἐν τῇ ἐσχάτῇ ἡμέρᾳ.

2. Mark 15:25 ἦν δὲ ὥρα τρίτη καὶ ἐσταύρωσαν (they crucified) αὐτόν.

3. Eph 5:16 αἱ ἡμέραι πονηραί εἰσιν.

4. John 20:27 μὴ γίνου (Be!) ἄπιστος ἀλλὰ πιστός.
(ἄπιστος = + πιστός. In English, to form the negative of a word we use prefixes such as "un" ("unaccountable") or "ir" ("irreplaceable"). In Greek, they use the prefix alpha, which is called an "alpha privative." What do you think ἄπιστος means?)

5. Matt 13:38 τὰ δὲ ζιζάνιά (weeds) εἰσιν οἱ υἱοὶ τοῦ πονηροῦ.

6. Matt 20:16 ἔσονται (they will be) οἱ ἔσχατοι πρῶτοι καὶ οἱ πρῶτοι ἔσχατοι.

7. Rom 12:21 μὴ νικῶ (Be conquered!) ὑπὸ τοῦ κακοῦ ἀλλὰ νίκα (Conquer!) ἐν τῷ ἀγαθῷ τὸ κακόν.
