so, i took an intro course to new testament greek a year or so ago, and i remember some things but we didn't do pronunciation beyond some cursory "this is how we will say it in class" stuff. i am writing a song right now and i was wondering if any of y'ins could help me with pronunciation of the following two items:

τίς με ρύσεται εκ του σώματος του θανάτου τούτου; - currently going with something along th lines of: "tis mɛ rysɛtai ɛk tu somatɔs tu θanatu tutu" but my IPA could be real bad by now and i'm never good with vowels

and th classic "κυριε ελεησον / χριστε ελεησον" - is that even koine? ah must admit ah do not know and wikipedia ain't helpin.

mercy bookoo
