When you were tilled by God, you proved yourself clearly to be a very worthy tiller of piety, for you had gathered in the sheaves of virtues for yourself.

Who kept the Disciple's hand from being burnt up, when it approached the fiery side of the Lord? Who gave it the daring, and it was able to touch the flaming bone? By all means, it was the very side that was touched. For had not the side empowered the right hand of clay, how could it have touched the wounds that shook the world above and below? This grace was given to Thomas, to be able to touch it and to cry out to Christ, "You are my Lord and my God." (SD)

(28:16-20)

Τῷ καιρῷ ἐκείνῳ, οἱ ἕνδεκα μαθηταὶ ἐπορεύθησαν εἰς τὴν Γαλιλαίαν εἰς τὸ ὄρος οὗ ἐτάξατο αὐτοῖς ὁ Ἰησοῦς, καὶ ἰδόντες αὐτὸν προσεκύνησαν, οἱ δὲ ἐδίστασαν. καὶ προσελθὼν ὁ Ἰησοῦς ἐλάλησεν αὐτοῖς λέγων, Ἐδόθη μοι πᾶσα ἐξουσία ἐν οὐρανῷ καὶ ἐπὶ γῆς. πορευθέντες οὖν μαθητεύσατε πάντα τὰ ἔθνη, βαπτίζοντες αὐτοὺς εἰς τὸ ὄνομα τοῦ πατρὸς καὶ τοῦ υἱοῦ καὶ τοῦ ἁγίου πνεύματος, διδάσκοντες αὐτοὺς τηρεῖν πάντα ὅσα ἐνετειλάμην ὑμῖν· καὶ ἰδοὺ ἐγὼ μεθ' ὑμῶν εἰμι πάσας τὰς ἡμέρας ἕως τῆς συντελείας τοῦ αἰῶνος.

At that time, the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain to which Jesus had directed them. And when they saw him they worshipped him; but some doubted. And Jesus came and said to them, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, to the close of the age. Amen." (RSV)

Come, all faithful, let us venerate the holy Resurrection of Christ; for behold, through the Cross, joy has come to the whole world.

Ἐλέησόν με, ὁ Θεός, κατὰ τὸ μέγα ἔλεός σου καὶ κατὰ τὸ πλῆθος τῶν οἰκτιρμῶν σου ἐξάλειψον τὸ ἀνόμημά μου.

Have mercy on me, O God, according to Your great mercy; and according to the abundance of Your compassion, blot out my transgression.

Ἐπὶ πλεῖον πλῦνόν με ἀπὸ τῆς ἀνομίας μου καὶ ἀπὸ τῆς ἁμαρτίας μου καθάρισόν με.

Wash me thoroughly from my lawlessness and cleanse me from my sin.

Ὅτι τὴν ἀνομίαν μου ἐγὼ γινώσκω, καὶ ἡ ἁμαρτία μου ἐνώπιόν μού ἐστι διαπαντός.

For I know my lawlessness, and my sin is always before me.

Σοὶ μόνῳ ἥμαρτον καὶ τὸ πονηρὸν ἐνώπιόν σου ἐποίησα, ὅπως ἂν δικαιωθῇς ἐν τοῖς λόγοις σου, καὶ νικήσῃς ἐν τῷ κρίνεσθαί σε.

Against You only have I sinned and done evil in Your sight; that You may be justified in Your words, and overcome when You are judged.

Ἰδοὺ γὰρ ἐν ἀνομίαις συνελήφθην, καὶ ἐν ἁμαρτίαις ἐκίσσησέ με ἡ μήτηρ μου.

For behold, I was conceived in transgressions, and in sins my mother bore me.

Ἰδοὺ γὰρ ἀλήθειαν ἠγάπησας, τὰ ἄδηλα καὶ τὰ κρύφια τῆς σοφίας σου ἐδήλωσάς μοι.

Behold, You love truth; You showed me the unknown and secret things of Your wisdom.

Ῥαντιεῖς με ὑσσώπῳ, καὶ καθαρισθήσομαι, πλυνεῖς με, καὶ ὑπὲρ χιόνα λευκανθήσομαι.

You shall sprinkle me with hyssop, and I will be cleansed; You shall wash me, and I will be made whiter than snow.

Ἀκουτιεῖς μοι ἀγαλλίασιν καὶ εὐφροσύνην, ἀγαλλιάσονται ὀστέα τεταπεινωμένα.

You shall make me hear joy and gladness; my bones that were humbled shall greatly rejoice.

Ἀπόστρεψον τὸ πρόσωπόν σου ἀπὸ τῶν ἁμαρτιῶν μου, καὶ πάσας τὰς ἀνομίας μου ἐξάλειψον.

Turn Your face from my sins, and blot out all my transgressions.

Καρδίαν καθαρὰν κτίσον ἐν ἐμοί, ὁ Θεός, καὶ πνεῦμα εὐθὲς ἐγκαίνισον ἐν τοῖς ἐγκάτοις μου.

Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me.

Μὴ ἀποῤῥίψῃς με ἀπὸ τοῦ προσώπου σου καὶ τὸ πνεῦμά σου τὸ ἅγιον μὴ ἀντανέλῃς ἀπ' ἐμοῦ.

Do not cast me away from Your presence, and do not take Your Holy Spirit from me.

Deliver me from bloodguiltiness, O God, the God of my salvation, and my tongue shall greatly rejoice in Your righteousness.

O Lord, You shall open my lips, and my mouth will declare Your praise.

Ὅτι εἰ ἠθέλησας θυσίαν, ἔδωκα ἄν· ὁλοκαυτώματα οὐκ εὐδοκήσεις.

For if You desired sacrifice, I would give it; You will not be pleased with whole burnt offerings.

Θυσία τῷ Θεῷ πνεῦμα συντετριμμένον, καρδίαν συντετριμμένην καὶ τεταπεινωμένην ὁ Θεὸς οὐκ ἐξουδενώσει.

A sacrifice to God is a broken spirit, a broken and humbled heart God will not despise.

Do good, O Lord, in Your good pleasure to Zion, and let the walls of Jerusalem be built.

Τότε εὐδοκήσεις θυσίαν δικαιοσύνης, ἀναφορὰν καὶ ὁλοκαυτώματα.

Then You will be pleased with a sacrifice of righteousness, with offerings and whole burnt offerings.

Thomas, who was also called the Twin, * was not there when You appeared * to the Disciples, O Lord, and therefore he did not believe * that You resurrected. * Thus emphatically he cried* aloud to those who saw You, "Unless I put my finger in His side * and the wounds created by the nails, * I will not believe that He indeed arose." (SD)

Αἰνεῖτε αὐτὸν ἐπὶ ταῖς δυναστείαις αὐτοῦ, αἰνεῖτε αὐτὸν κατὰ τὸ πλῆθος τῆς μεγαλωσύνης αὐτοῦ.

Praise Him for His mighty acts; praise Him according to the abundance of His greatness. (SAAS)

Ὡς θέλεις ψηλάφησον Χριστὸς τῷ Θωμᾷ ἐβόησε· βάλε τὴν χεῖρα καὶ γνῶθί με ὀστέα ἔχοντα, καὶ γεῶδες σῶμα, καὶ μὴ γίνου ἄπιστος, ἐπίσης δὲ τοῖς ἄλλοις πιστώθητι, ὁ δὲ ἐβόησεν· ὁ Θεός μου καὶ ὁ Κύριος, σὺ ὑπάρχεις, δόξα τῇ Ἐγέρσει σου.

"O Thomas, according to your wish, * handle Me," said Christ to him. * "Put out your hand, and be cognizant that I have flesh and bones, * and an earthen body. * Be not one who disbelieves. * But rather with the others be confident." And he in turn cried out, * "You, O Jesus, are my Lord and God, * and my Savior. * Glory to Your resurrection." (SD)

Αἰνεῖτε αὐτὸν ἐν ἤχῳ σάλπιγγος, αἰνεῖτε αὐτὸν ἐν ψαλτηρίῳ καὶ κιθάρᾳ.

Praise Him with the sound of trumpet; praise Him with the harp and lyre. (SAAS)

Δεῦτε, τὴν πανέορτον φαιδράν, ἔνδοξον Ἀνάστασιν πάντες, πανηγυρίσαντες, πάλιν ἑορτάσωμεν, φαιδρὰν πανήγυριν, Γεωργίου τοῦ Μάρτυρος, καὶ στέψωμεν τοῦτον, ἐαρινοὶς ἄνθεσιν, ὄντα ἀήττητον, ὅπως ταῖς αὐτοῦ ἱκεσίαις, λάβωμεν τῶν θλίψεων ἅμα, καὶ πλημμελημάτων ἀπολύτρωσιν.

Come all, having celebrated Christ's * glorious and bright Resurrection, the joyous feast of feasts, * let us once again observe the sacred festival * of the glorious Martyr George, * and crown him with vernal * blossoms as is due to one who is invincible, * so that by his fervent entreaties * we might be absolved of transgressions * and also be delivered from adversities. (SD)

Αἰνεῖτε αὐτὸν ἐν τυμπάνῳ καὶ χορῷ, αἰνεῖτε αὐτὸν ἐν χορδαῖς καὶ ὀργάνῳ.

Praise Him with timbrel and dance; praise Him with strings and flute. (SAAS)

Ὅλον, προσενήνοχας σαυτόν, τῷ σοὶ δεδωκότι παμμάκαρ, ζωὴν ὁλόκληρον, ὥσπερ ὁλοκάρπωσιν, ζῶσαν καὶ ἔμψυχον, καὶ θυσίαν εὐπρόσδεκτον, καὶ καθαρωτάτην· ὅθεν ἐχρημάτισας, πρέσβυς θερμότατος, ζάλης ἐξαιρούμενος πάντας, πίστει τοὺς ὑμνοῦντάς σε Μάρτυς, καὶ προσκαλουμένους σε Γεώργιε.

As a whole burnt offering, O Saint, * animate and live, did you offer yourself entirely * and as an acceptable and most clean sacrifice, O all-blessed one, unto Him * who gave you His whole life. * Wherefore you became an earnest interceder for us, * rescuing all those who extol you * and with ardent faith call upon you * from the storms of life, all- holy Martyr George. (SD)

Αἰνεῖτε αὐτὸν ἐν κυμβάλοις εὐήχοις, αἰνεῖτε αὐτὸν ἐν κυμβάλοις ἀλαλαγμοῦ. Πᾶσα πνοὴ αἰνεσάτω τὸν Κύριον.

Praise Him with resounding cymbals; praise Him with triumphant cymbals. Let everything that breathes praise the Lord. (SAAS)

Σπόρον, γεωργήσας ἐμμελῶς, τὸν καταβληθέντα τοῦ λόγου, τῇ καθαρᾷ σου ψυχῇ, τοῦτον ἐπλεόνασας, πόνοις ἀθλήσεως, καὶ σοφῶς ἀποθέμενος, ἐν ἐπουρανίαις, θήκαις τὴν ἀκήρατον, εὗρες ἀπόλαυσιν, ἧς νῦν, ἐμφορούμενος Μάκαρ, ταῖς πρὸς τὸν Θεόν σου πρεσβείαις, τοὺς πιστῶς ὑμνοῦντάς σε περίσῳζε.

When you conscientiously had tilled * the seed of the word that was planted within your purest soul, * you increased it through the labors of your martyrdom. * Having wisely stowed it away * in heavenly storage, * blessed one, you therefore gained the undefiled reward. * Hence, now as you fully enjoy this, * by your intercessions with Christ God * save the lives of those who laud you faithfully. (SD)

Ἀνέτειλε τὸ ἔαρ, δεῦτε εὐωχηθῶμεν, ἐξέλαμψεν ἡ Ἀνάστασις Χριστοῦ, δεῦτε εὐφρανθῶμεν ἡ τοῦ Ἀθλοφόρου μνήμη, τοὺς πιστοὺς φαιδρύνουσα ἀνεδείχθη· διὸ φιλέορτοι, δεῦτε μυστικῶς αὐτὴν πανηγυρίσωμεν· οὗτος γὰρ ὡς καλὸς στρατιώτης, ἠνδρίσατο κατὰ τῶν τυράννων, καὶ τούτους κατῄσχυνε, μιμητὴς γενόμενος τοῦ πάθους τοῦ Σωτῆρος Χριστοῦ, οὐκ ἠλέησε τὸ σκεῦος τὸ πήλινον τὸ ἑαυτοῦ, ἀλλὰ γυμνὸν ἀνεχάλκευσεν, ἐν βασάνοις αὐτὸ προσαμειβόμενος, αὐτῷ βοήσωμεν· Ἀθλοφόρε ἱκέτευε, εἰς τὸ σωθῆναι τὰς ψυχὰς ἡμῶν.

Spring is here: come, let us be merry. And Christ's resurrection has shone brightly: come, let us be joyous. The memory of the prize-winning Martyr has come upon us, gladdening the faithful. Therefore, come all who are fond of feasts, let us celebrate it mystically. For as a good soldier, he stood up manfully against the tyrants and put them utterly to shame, and thus emulated the Passion of Christ the Savior. He had no mercy on the clay vessel of his own body, but rather taking it naked he reforged and exchanged it by means of tortures. Unto him let us cry aloud: O victorious Martyr, earnestly entreat for the salvation of our souls. (SD)

After eight days from Your resurrection, O Jesus our King, and the Father's only-begotten Word, You appeared to Your Disciples, the doors being shut; and You granted them Your peace. And to the disbelieving Disciple You showed the marks on Your body. "Come and touch my hands and my feet, and my uncorrupt side." And he believed and cried to You, "My Lord and my God, glory to You."
