Modern Greek Bible
« on: November 20, 2016, 02:17:06 PM »
Is there any Modern Greek translation of the Bible written in such a way to be the nearest possible to original Koine Greek? I'm specially expecting NT, but LXX-based OT would be good.
"He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty." (Psalm 90:1)

You mean Katharevousa?
Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

Demotic would be more useful. I'd like to read the Bible in Modern Greek since I'm trying to learn some of it, but in such a way to be the most equivalent to the Koine possible.

See if this is what you had in mine. I have a more complete pdf version.

More or less, I can see a couple of excerpts where they could have used forms nearer to the Koine... but this is good.
