Translate into Greek:—

Having entered the city he summoned all the inhabitants to the market-place, and addressed them as follows:—We are here, my friends, not for any evil purpose, but to make you partakers of freedom. Do not be deceived. It is not we but your own evil counsellors whom you have to fear. They, under the pretence of guarding you from foreign foes, have for years past been keeping you in bondage.


Express in Greek (without using Greek text):—
1.I know that I am mortal. I know that you are my master. It is evident that he is in error.
2.It is just that he should suffer death. I have unconsciously offended you. What in the world induced you to do this? Why do you keep trifling? Every king at his accession takes this oath. One after another, as fast as they came up, they ran to join those in front. All who (use the article) were on board the ship landed safely on the island.
