Koine Greek Adaptation and Literal Translation
- Koine Text (Many variations of the first stanza are given here, with a few notes below).
|ΕΣΤΙΝ ΚΥΡΙΟΣ||HE IS LORD|
ἀνέστη ἐκ νεκρῶν
καί ἐστιν κύριος.
πάν γόνυ κάμψει,
πάν στόμα ἐρεῖ,
ὅτι Ἰησοῦς κύριος.

- Parallel Koine Greek / English (given above)
- The wording of Philippians is πᾶσα γλῶσσα ἐξομολογήσηται, which could be substitued for line 6.
- Τhe verb γονυπέτησει (>γονυπετέω) could replace κάμψει. πάντες γονυπέτησοναι in line 5.
This song uses 12 words. I introduce it in one of the first several lessons. It is good for teaching
- The 3rd person singular endings: ἐρεῖ, κάμψει
- Τhe perfect of ἀνιστημι 3rd singular ἀνέστη. Many teach the perfect of ἵστημι, ἔστηκα as a separate vocab word.
- The verb εἰμί 3rd singular ἐστιν along with its accenting at the beginning and as an emphatic statement.
- The nominatives: κύριος, Ἰησους
- Τhe universal genitive plural ending: νεκρῶν
- Third declension nouns γόνυ, στόμα (both body parts)
- ἀνέστη A perfect from ἀνίστημι usually translated in the present 'he is risen'.
- ἐκ νεκρῶν. The word νεκρῶν is plural of the adjective νεκρός 'dead'. Perhaps the full meaning is 'from the place of the dead' ἐκ (τῆς χώρας) νεκρῶν.
- ἐρεῖ . The future of λέγω is not used. ἐρῶ <ἐρέω is used in its place. It looks like a contract verb in its forms.
- ὅτι Ἰησοῦς (ἐστιν) κύριος. The to be verb omitted frequently in Greek. If the word ἐστιν is emphasized meaning "IS", the word should be accented ἐστίν.
Greek Gloss Note ἀνίστημι pf. 'is risen' ἀνέστη (pf. 3rd singular) γόνυ τό knee ἐστιν he is from εἰμί ἐκ from, out of + genitive only ἐρῶ will say ἐρεῖ 3rd singular used as future. Ἰησοῦς -ου ὁ Jesus καὶ and κάμψει will bow, bend fut. of κάμπτω κύριος -ου ὁ lord, master νεκρός -ή -όν dead used as a noun πᾶς, πᾶσα, πᾶν all, every στόμα τό mouth
