I appreciated the translation of epiousion.

How about ΧΑΙΡΕ ?
How about ΚΕΧΑΡΙΤΩΜΕΝΗ ?

Both of these of course from Luke 1:
ΚΑΙ ΕΙΣΕΛΘΩΝ ΠΡΟΣ ΑΥΤΗΝ ΕΙΠΕΝ ΧΑΙΡΕ ΚΕΧΑΡΙΤΩΜΕΝΗ Ο ΚΥΡΙΟΣ ΜΕΤΑ ΣΟΥ

Is ΚΕΧΑΡΙΤΩΜΕΝΗ a verb or noun in the sentence?

Thanks much,
rjt (Robert Joseph)

Hi Robert,

Κεχαριτωμένη is a participle meaning someone full of Grace

Χαῖρε is the imperative of the verb χαίρειν (be joyful)

Thank you George. Participles in English are generally adjectives. That is still the sense here but then there doesn't seem to be a noun that it refers to. Is that a feature of the Greek language? Or is something missing?

Since a particle (verbal) in English can be past or present, is there any tense specified in ΚΕΧΑΡΙΤΩΜΕΝΗ ?

Thanks,
Bob

It is present perfect; the noun is (implied) virgin Mary.
