java ≿ JavaScript ≿ php ≿ python ≿ ruby ≿ golang ≿ perl ≿ clojure ≿ ocaml ≿ haskell ≿ scheme ≿ emacs lisp

which programing language is more powerful or expressive but remain readable?

This one is hard to say.

ruby ≿ scheme ≿ python ≿ perl ≿ php ≿ golang ≿ JavaScript ≿ clojure ≿ java ≿ emacs lisp.

by the way, the only way to know and judge a programing language is to actually learn it and code it for say 6 months. Years of reading other people's blogs are useless, unless the gap or nature is big, such as C vs haskell.
