Your examples reminded me of 1 Cor 2:13b,
en didaktios pneumatos, pneumatikois pneumatika sugkrinontes.

>For want of a better expression, I labelled this thread curiosa, though I
>am not looking for the really absurd here. What I am looking for are
>passages that happen to illustrate a specific grammatical phenomenon quite
>dramatically. Here are two examples, I hope the collective wisdom of the
>list can come up with many others.
>My favourite verse to illustrate the three grammatical genders is Ephesians
>4:5 EIS SWMA, MIA PISTIS, EN BAPTISMA, nicely summing up all three forms of
>EIS in one verse.
>Another one is 1 Chron 11:2:
>KAI EIPEN KURIOS O QEOS SOU SOI SU POIMANEIS TON LAON MOU TON ISRAHL, with
>three cases of SU in a row.
>I am sure there are many others in the NT and LXX .Feel free to share them.
