Two non-Koine questions

I have two questions petaining to non-NT Greek that I hope someone
will help me wwith, like Carl Conrad. First, I'm having a little
trouble withthe following clause:
ALLA TO THS EUNOIAS PAREIS PROSOCHN ... (by the way, it is common to use
C for Chi and X for Xi right??) If I've read this right it says "the one
who has let fall to the side the attention of favor/goodwill". The LCL,
however says "He will omit the appeal fora favourable hearing". Unless
I've missed something, PAREIS is a 2 Aor act part. from PARIHMI, not a
finite verb. Also, I don't see the word "hearing" anywhere in here and
I don't see "appeal" as a choice in LSJ for EUNOIA. DId I mess this up,
or is the Living Bible versin of Lucian?

    Seccond, I'm dying trying to do this stuff. I have to look up about
90% of the words. Either I need to drop this class or find a way to
look up stuff faster than thumbing back and forth through LSJ. Would
Perseus be faster for searching for and identifying forms? If so, can
someone give me the URL for it please? I don't have it anymore.
