Jesus Prayer in Greek
« on: April 12, 2010, 11:52:09 PM »
I speak English but I think it would be odd if I said this at school in english.
I'd rather say this in a language that no one speaks here so I can say it whenever i need to say it out loud.
Psalms 23:6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.

You could always just say it in your head!

But, if you must:

Κύριε Ἰησοῦ Χριστέ, Υἱέ τοῦ Θεοῦ, ἐλέησόν με τὸν ἁμαρτωλόν (τὴν ἁμαρτωλόν if prayed by a female)

Kírie Isú Christé, Ié tu Theú, eléison me, ton amartolón (tin amartolón)

Can we get some Latin too? My Latin is terrible.
You are right. I apologize for having sacked Constantinople. I really need to stop doing that.

Thanks for providing this prayer in Greek, but how does one pronounce this?

No need to yell.  :)

I should have worded my question a little different I guess.  I would like maybe a phonetic pronunciation (which wynd does not give) such as what is found in this thread: http://www.christianforums.com/t2984140/  Scroll down to Ioan cel Nou's post where he gives the phonetic pronunciation of the Jesus Prayer in Romanian.  This is what I'm needing.

KEE-ree-eh ee-ee-SOOH khree-STEH ee-ee-EH theh-OOH eh-LEH-ee-SON meh ton (masc.), teen (femin.) ah-mah-rtoh-LON
IPA:
/'ciri.e i.i.'su xri'ste i.i'e θe'u e'le.i,son me ton (m) tin (f) amarto'lon/
Note:
-Capital letters denote stress
-The KEE in KEE-ree-eh (Κύριε) is palatalized (in IPA phonetic representation: /ci/)
-Try to pronounce the x- in Χριστέ like the Scottish -ch- (in Loch)
- The meh (με: accusative singular form of personal pronoun ἐγώ) in eh-LEH-ee-SON meh is enclitic, it "leans" on the host word and its stress moves back to the ultima of the preceding word, not having an independent accent. That's why, ελέησόν με has two accents on ελέησόν
