Hebrews 6:9

But we are persuaded (pepeismeta de).
Perfect passive indicative of peitw, literary plural. Note Paul's use of pepeismai in 2 Timothy 1:12.

Better things (ta kreissona).
"The better things" than those pictures in Hebrews 6:4-8.

That accompany salvation (exomena swthriav).
"Things holding on to salvation" (Mark 1:38), a common Greek phrase exomena, present middle participle of exw.

Though we thus speak (ei kai outwv laloumen).
Concessive condition of the first class. Explanatory, not apologetic, of his plain talk.

Not unrighteous to forget (ou gar adikov epilatestai).
Second aorist middle infinitive of epilantanw with genitive case (ergou, work, agaphv, love). But even God cannot remember what they did not do.

In that ye ministered and still do minister (diakonhsantev kai diakonountev).
First aorist active and present active participle of the one verb diakonew, the sole difference being the tense (single act aorist, repeated acts present).
