Shortest sentences in the Greek New Testament

Rod Decker has a post on the one word sentences in the New Testament:

Matt 11:9 προφήτην;

Mark 4:3 Ἀκούετε.

Luke 7:26 προφήτην;

Acts 15:29 Ἔρρωσθε.

Rom 3:9 προεχόμεθα;

Rom 3:27 ἐξεκλείσθη.

2 Pet 3:18 ἀμήν. (There is a similar instance of ἀμήν in the short ending of Mark.)

If we get down to the number of letters, that makes 2 Peter 3:18 the verse that contains the shortest sentence.

Logos Bible software has done it again. (Didn’t I recently mention that; they really need to stop doing it :).

They are providing an online tool for automatically transliterating pasted Greek and Hebrew text. The new website is Transliterate.com. With the plethora of tools now available in Bible software like Logos and online this is not as needed as it was when I was studying Greek and Hebrew but it is nevertheless a welcome development.
