It occurs to me that I did not provide much in the way of syntactical
information on how I rendered my translation.

SUGKRINONTES is an adverbial participle of means.  It relates back to
EIDWMEN (we may know).  I t answers the question "How will we know?" "By
means of interpreting..."  

PNEUMATIKA is a Plural Substantive Adjective in the Accusative Case
functioning as a Direct Object.  It semantically parallels the object of
EIDWMEN, "the things given us by God." 

PNEUMATIKOIS is a Plural Substantive Adjective, Dative of Means.  It
semantically parallels the "words taught by the Spirit".

Hope this clarifies where I'm coming from.
God Bless,
