Hebrews 4:13

I'm interested in comments on the grammar and translation of Heb 4:13c
(PROS hON hHMIN hO LOGOS). What is the function of the dative here? And the
meaning of LOGOS? Most translations assume a verb like ESTIN and hHMIN as
the indirect object: so, "before whom the account is to us" = "before whom
we must give an account". Fair enough?

Thanks in anticipation,
