How about Luke 23:43?
AMHN SOI LEGW, SHMERON MET EMOU ESHi EN TWi PARADEISWi
AMHN SOI LEGW SHMERON, MET EMOU ESHi EN TWi PARADEISWi
"say unto you, Today you will..."
"say unto you today, you will..."
Or, the following (copied from Moon-Ryul Jung's B-Greek post of Oct. 1,
2001) of Gal. 3:11:
hOTI DE EN NOMWi OUDEIS DIKAIOUNTAI PARA TWi QEWi DHLON, hOTI
hO DIKAIOS EK PISTEWS ZHSETAI.
"The above, with its decision to place the comma after DHLON,
is usually translated as:
That in the law nobody is justified before God is obvious,
because the righteous shall live by faith.
"If we put the comma before DHLON as:
hOTI DE EN NOMWi OUDEIS DIKAIOUNTAI PARA TWi QEWi, DHLON hOTI
hO DIKAIOS EK PISTEWS ZHSETAI,
"it will be translated as:
Because in the law nobody is justified before God, it is
obvious that the righteous shall live by faith."
