Vocabulary for Chapter 17

You have already learned these verbs, but I thought I would show you what each verb looks lke in its different tenses. There is nothing here to memorize (unless you really want to); it is more for the curious among you.

If the tense form does not occur in the Greek Testament, there is a dash. The tense forms are in this order:

  • Imperfect (in parenthesis); no dash if not occur in Greek Testament
  • Future active/middle
  • Aorist active/middle
  • Perfect active
  • Perfect middle/passive
  • Aorist passive (from which is also formed the future passive)
