Sticheron Idiomelon. Mode pl. 1.

Ἐξάγαγε ἐκ φυλακῆς τὴν ψυχήν μου, τοῦ ἐξομολογήσασθαι τῷ ὀνόματί σου.

Bring my soul out of prison to give thanks to Your name, O Lord. [SAAS]

Δεῦτε πιστοὶ ἐπεργασμεθα, ἐν φωτὶ τὰ ἔργα τοῦ Θεοῦ, ὡς ἐν ἡμέρᾳ εὐσχημόνως περιπατήσωμεν, πᾶσαν ἄδικον συγγραφὴν ἀφ' ἑαυτῶν, τοῦ πλησίον ἀφελώμεθα, μὴ τιθέντες πρόσκομμα τούτῳ εἰς σκάνδαλον, ἀφήσωμεν τῆς σαρκὸς τὴν εὐπάθειαν, αὐξήσωμεν τῆς ψυχῆς τὰ χαρίσματα, δώσωμεν ἐνδεέσιν ἄρτον, καὶ προσέλθωμεν Χριστῷ, ἐν μετανοίᾳ βοῶντες· ὁ Θεὸς ἡμῶν, ἐλέησον ἡμᾶς.

Come, O believers, let us do the works of God in the light; let us conduct ourselves becomingly as in the day. Of our own accord let us get rid of every unjust contract with our neighbor, and not put a stumbling block in his way. Let us abandon the pleasures of the flesh, and instead increase the spiritual gifts of the soul. Let us give bread to those in need. And thus let us go to Christ and cry out in repentance: "O our God, have mercy on us." [SD]

Ἐμὲ ὑπομενοῦσι δίκαιοι, ἕως οὐ ἀνταποδῷς μοι.

The righteous shall wait for me, until You reward me. [SAAS]

Δεῦτε πιστοὶ ἐπεργασμεθα, ἐν φωτὶ τὰ ἔργα τοῦ Θεοῦ, ὡς ἐν ἡμέρᾳ εὐσχημόνως περιπατήσωμεν, πᾶσαν ἄδικον συγγραφὴν ἀφ' ἑαυτῶν, τοῦ πλησίον ἀφελώμεθα, μὴ τιθέντες πρόσκομμα τούτῳ εἰς σκάνδαλον, ἀφήσωμεν τῆς σαρκὸς τὴν εὐπάθειαν, αὐξήσωμεν τῆς ψυχῆς τὰ χαρίσματα, δώσωμεν ἐνδεέσιν ἄρτον, καὶ προσέλθωμεν Χριστῷ, ἐν μετανοίᾳ βοῶντες· ὁ Θεὸς ἡμῶν, ἐλέησον ἡμᾶς.

O living sacrifices, rational whole-burnt offerings, O Martyrs of the Lord, and perfect sacrificial victims of God, who know God and are known by God, O lambs whose fold is inaccessible to wolves: intercede that together with you we also may be shepherded beside the still water of rest. [SD]

Martyr fans all, come now, let us spiritually make merry and celebrate! Today, the martyr Theodore is offering a mystical banquet, which makes us, who are fans of feast days, so glad, that we shout to him: "We salute you and say, Rejoice, O undefeated medalist! You crushed to the ground the threats made by the tyrants. Rejoice, for you gave your clay body over to torture for the sake of Christ God! Rejoice, for by many trials you were shown to be a tried and true soldier of the heavenly army! Therefore we entreat you, O adornment of martyrs: Intercede on behalf of our souls! [SD]

For with the Lord there is mercy, and with Him is abundant redemption; and He shall redeem Israel from all his transgressions. [SAAS]

You extend the God-given grace of your miracles to all who run to you in faith, O martyr Theodore. And we extol you for this and say: You deliver captives, you heal the sick, you give wealth to the poor, and you rescue those who sail the seas. You averted the useless escape of slaves, and you showed robbers what their loss would be. You admonished soldiers to refrain from plunder, and you granted children their requests sympathetically. You are an ardent protector of those who keep your sacred memory. Count us with them, O most holy Martyr, and entreat Christ to grant great mercy to us who extol your martyrdom! [SD]

Δῶρον Θεοῦ ὑπέρτατον, ἀνεδείχθης Μάρτυς Θεόδωρε, ὅτι καὶ μετὰ τέλος, ὡς ζῶν, τοῖς προστρέχουσι παρέχεις τὰς αἰτήσεις. Ὅθεν υἱὸν ἁρπαγέντα γυναίου ποτέ, δορυάλωτον ἐν ἀλλοπίστῳ στρατῷ, ἐπιστᾶσα ἡ χήρα, τοῖς δάκρυσι τὸν Ναόν σου κατέβρεχεν· αὐτὸς δὲ ὡς συμπαθής, ἐφ' ἵππῳ λευκῷ ἐπιβάς, ταύτης τὸν παῖδα, ἀοράτως παρέστησας, καὶ μετὰ τοῦτο σὺν τούτῳ ἐνεργῶν, τοῖς θαύμασιν οὐκ ἔλιπες. Ἀλλ' αἴτησαι Χριστὸν τὸν Θεόν, σωθῆναι τὰς ψυχὰς ἡμῶν.

You have proved to be a supreme gift of God, according to your name, O martyr Theodore, for you grant the requests of those who pray to you, even after death, as if you were alive. For example, when a widow's son had been taken captive by foreign soldiers, the woman came to your church and drenched it in tears; you, being sympathetic, mounted a white horse and invisibly returned her son. Ever since then you do not cease to do miracles. Now we entreat you to pray to Christ God, for the salvation of our souls. [SD]

Θείων δωρεῶν, ἐπώνυμόν σε γεραίρω, τρισμάκαρ Θεόδωρε· τοῦ φωτὸς γὰρ τοῦ θείου, ἄδυτος φωστὴρ ἀναδειχθείς, κατέλαμψας ἄθλοις σου, τὴν σύμπασαν Κτίσιν, καὶ πυρὸς ἀκμαιότερος φανείς, τὴν φλόγα κατέσβεσας, καὶ τοῦ δολίου δράκοντος, τὴν κάραν συνέτριψας· διὸ ἐν τοῖς ἄθλοις σου, Χριστὸς ἐπικαμφθεὶς ἐστεφάνωσε τὴν θείαν κάραν σου. Μεγαλομάρτυς Ἀθλητά, ὡς ἔχων παῤῥησίαν πρὸς Θεὸν ἐκτενῶς ἱκέτευε, ὑπὲρ τῶν ψυχῶν ἡμῶν.

Thrice-blessed Theodore, I honor you as the namesake of divine gifts. You were shown to be a never-setting luminary of the divine light, and thus you have illumined the entire world with your martyric feats. Being more powerful than fire, you put out the flames and crushed the head of the wily serpent. During your martyrdom, Christ was moved, and He crowned your divine head. O Great Martyr Medalist, since you have confidence before God, fervently entreat Him on behalf of our souls. [SD]

The devil used the tyrant, his fellow apostate, as his instrument. He gave him the foul idea, to attempt to defile the Orthodox people who were purifying themselves by fasting, by compelling them to eat foods that were polluted by pagan sacrifice. But you, O Saint, thwarted his plot with a wiser idea. You appeared to the Archbishop in a dream, and revealed to him the sinister plot, and how awful the consequences would be. For this we offer gratitude, and even call you savior; and every year we remember this miracle. And now we entreat you, O Martyr Theodore, to preserve us unharmed by the plots of the evil one, by your intercessions to God on our behalf. [SD]

Ὁ διὰ σὲ Θεοπάτωρ προφήτης Δαυΐδ, μελῳδικῶς περὶ σοῦ προανεφώνησε, τῷ μεγαλεῖά σοι ποιήσαντι. Παρέστη ἡ Βασίλισσα ἐκ δεξιῶν σου. Σὲ γὰρ μητέρα πρόξενον ζωῆς ἀνέδειξεν, ὁ ἀπάτωρ ἐκ σοῦ ἐνανθρωπῆσαι εὐδοκήσας Θεός, ἵνα τὴν ἑαυτοῦ ἀναπλάσῃ εἰκόνα, φθαρεῖσαν τοῖς πάθεσι, καὶ τὸ πλανηθὲν ὀρειάλωτον εὑρών, πρόβατον τοῖς ὤμοις ἀναλαβών, τῷ Πατρὶ προσαγάγῃ, καὶ τῷ ἰδίῳ θελήματι, ταῖς οὐρανίαις συνάψῃ Δυνάμεσι, καὶ σώσῃ Θεοτόκε τὸν κόσμον, Χριστὸς ὁ ἔχων, τὸ μέγα καὶ πλούσιον ἔλεος.

David the prophet, forefather of God through you, cried out in song concerning you to the One who has done magnificent things for you. The Queen stands at your right hand. For God, who gladly became man through you without a father, has proclaimed you mother and host of life, so that he might restore in us his image which was corrupted by passion. Having found the stray sheep caught in the mountains, he laid it on his shoulders and brought it to the Father. By his own free will he placed it among the heavenly hosts. Christ, who has great and abundant mercy, O Theotokos, will save the world. [HC]

Ἐκάλεσεν Ἀδὰμ ὀνόματα πᾶσι τοῖς κτήνεσι, καὶ πᾶσι τοῖς πετεινοῖς τοῦ οὐρανοῦ, καὶ πᾶσι τοῖς θηρίοις τῆς γῆς, τῷ δὲ Ἀδὰμ οὐχ εὑρέθη βοηθός, ὅμοιος αὐτῷ. Καὶ ἐπέβαλεν ὁ Θεὸς ἔκστασιν ἐπὶ τὸν Ἀδάμ, καὶ ὕπνωσε, καὶ ἔλαβε μίαν τῶν πλευρῶν αὐτοῦ, καὶ ἀνεπλήρωσε σάρκα ἀντ' αὐτῆς. Καὶ ᾠκοδόμησε Κύριος ὁ Θεὸς τὴν πλευράν, ἣν ἔλαβεν ἀπὸ τοῦ Ἀδάμ, εἰς γυναῖκα, καὶ ἤγαγεν αὐτὴν πρὸς τὸν Ἀδάμ. Καὶ εἶπεν Ἀδάμ· Τοῦτο νῦν ὀστοῦν ἐκ τῶν ὀστῶν μου, καὶ σάρξ ἐκ τῆς σαρκός μου, αὕτη κληθήσεται Γυνή, ὅτι ἐκ τοῦ ἀνδρὸς αὐτῆς ἐλήφθη αὕτη. Ἕνεκεν τούτου, καταλείψει ἄνθρωπος τὸν πατέρα αὐτοῦ καὶ τὴν μητέρα, καὶ προσκολληθήσεται πρὸς τὴν γυναῖκα αὐτοῦ· καὶ ἔσονται οἱ δύο εἰς σάρκα μίαν. Καὶ ἦσαν οἱ δύο γυμνοἰ, ὅ τε Ἀδὰμ καὶ ἡ γυνὴ αὐτοῦ, καὶ οὐκ ᾐσχύνοντο, ὁ δὲ ὄφις ἦν φρονιμώτατος πάντων τῶν θηρίων τῶν ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς, ὧν ἐποίησε Κύριος ὁ Θεός. Καὶ εἶπεν ὁ ὄφις τῇ γυναικί· τί ὅτι εἶπεν ὁ Θεός· οὐ μὴ φάγητε ἀπὸ παντὸς ξύλου τοῦ ἐν τῷ Παραδείσῳ; Καὶ εἶπεν ἡ γυνὴ τῷ ὄφει· Ἀπὸ παντὸς ξύλου τοῦ ἐν τῷ Παραδείσῳ φαγώμεθα, ἀπὸ δὲ τοῦ καρποῦ τοῦ ξύλου, ὅ ἐστιν ἐν μέσῳ τοῦ Παραδείσου, εἶπεν ὁ Θεός, οὐ φάγεσθε ἀπ' αὐτοῦ, οὐδὲ μὴ ἅψησθε αὐτοῦ, ἵνα μὴ θανάτῳ ἀποθανεῖσθε. Καὶ εἶπεν ὁ ὄφις τῇ γυναικί· Οὐ θανάτῳ ἀποθανεῖσθε· ᾔδει γὰρ ὁ Θεός, ὅτι ᾖ δ' ἂν ἡμέρᾳ φάγητε ἀπ' αὐτοῦ, διανοιχθήσονται ὑμῶν οἱ ὀφθαλμοί, καὶ ἔσεσθε ὡς θεοί, γινώσκοντες καλὸν καὶ πονηρόν. Καὶ εἶδεν ἡ γυνή, ὅτι καλὸν τὸ ξύλον εἰς βρῶσιν, καὶ ὅτι ἀρεστὸν τοῖς ὀφθαλμοῖς ἰδεῖν, καὶ ὡραῖόν ἐστι τοῦ κατανοῆσαι, καὶ λαβοῦσα ἡ γυνὴ ἀπὸ τοῦ καρποῦ αὐτοῦ, ἔφαγε, καὶ ἔδωκε καὶ τῷ ἀνδρὶ αὐτῆς μετ' αὐτῆς, καὶ ἔφαγον. Καὶ διηνοίχθησαν οἱ ὀφθαλμοὶ τῶν δύο, καὶ ἔγνωσαν ὅτι γυμνοὶ ἦσαν· καὶ ἔῤῥαψαν φύλλα συκῆς, καὶ ἐποίησαν ἑαυτοῖς περιζώματα. Καὶ ἤκουσαν τῆς φωνῆς Κυρίου τοῦ Θεοῦ, περιπατοῦντος ἐν τῷ Παραδείσῳ τὸ δειλινόν, καὶ ἐκρύβησαν, ὅ τε Ἀδὰμ καὶ ἡ γυνὴ αὐτοῦ, ἀπὸ προσώπου Κυρίου τοῦ Θεοῦ ἐν μέσῳ τοῦ Παραδείσου. Καὶ ἐκάλεσε Κύριος ὁ Θεὸς τὸν Ἀδάμ, καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ· Ἀδάμ, ποῦ εἶ; Καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ· Τῆς φωνῆς σου ἤκουσα, περιπατοῦντος ἐν τῷ Παραδείσῳ, καὶ ἐφοβήθην, ὅτι γυμνός εἰμι, καὶ ἐκρύβην. Καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ ὁ Θεός· τίς ἀνήγγειλέ σοι ὅτι γυμνὸς εἶ; εἰ μὴ ἀπὸ τοῦ ξύλου, οὗ ἐνετειλάμην σοι τούτου μόνον μὴ φαγεῖν, ἀπ' αὐτοῦ ἔφαγες; Καὶ εἶπεν ὁ Ἀδάμ· Ἡ γυνή, ἣν ἔδωκας μετ' ἐμοῦ, αὕτη μοι ἔδωκεν ἀπὸ τοῦ ξύλου, καὶ ἔφαγον. Καὶ εἶπε Κύριος ὁ Θεὸς τῇ γυναικί· τί τοῦτο ἐποίησας; καὶ εἶπεν ἡ γυνή, ὁ ὄφις ἠπάτησέ με, καὶ ἔφαγον. Καὶ εἶπε Κύριος ὁ Θεὸς τῷ ὄφει· Ὅτι ἐποίησας τοῦτο, ἐπικατάρατος εἶ ἀπὸ πάντων τῶν κτηνῶν, καὶ ἀπὸ πάντων τῶν θηρίων τῆς γῆς, ἐπὶ τῷ στήθει σου καὶ τῇ κοιλίᾳ πορεύσῃ, καὶ γῆν φαγῇ πάσας τὰς ἡμέρας τῆς ζωῆς σου, καὶ ἔχθραν θήσω ἀνὰ μέσον σοῦ, καὶ ἀνὰ μέσον τῆς γυναικός, καὶ ἀνὰ μέσον τοῦ σπέρματός σου, καὶ ἀνὰ μέσον τοῦ σπέρματος αὐτῆς, αὐτός σου τηρήσει κεφαλήν, καὶ σὺ τηρήσεις αὐτοῦ πτέρναν. Καὶ τῇ γυναικὶ εἶπε· Πληθύνων πληθυνῶ τὰς λύπας σου, καὶ τὸν στεναγμόν σου, ἐν λύπαις τέξῃ τέκνα, καὶ πρὸς τὸν ἄνδρα σου ἡ ἀποστροφή σου, καὶ αὐτὸς σου κυριεύσει· τῷ δὲ Ἀδὰμ εἶπεν· Ὅτι ἤκουσας τῆς φωνῆς τῆς γυναικός σου, καὶ ἔφαγες ἀπὸ τοῦ ξύλου, οὗ ἐνετειλάμην σοι τούτου μόνου μὴ φαγεῖν, ἀπ' αὐτοῦ ἔφαγες, ἐπικατάρατος ἡ γῆ ἐν τοῖς ἔργοις σου, ἐν λύπαις φαγῇ αὐτὴν πάσας τὰς ἡμέρας τῆς ζωῆς σου, ἀκάνθας καὶ τριβόλους ἀνατελεῖ σοι, καὶ φαγῇ τὸν χόρτον τοῦ ἀγροῦ, ἐν ἱδρῶτι τοῦ προσώπου σου φαγῇ τὸν ἄρτον σου, ἕως τοῦ ἀποστρέψαι σε εἰς τὴν γῆν, ἐξ ἧς ἐλήφθης, ὅτι γῆ εἶ, καὶ εἰς γῆν ἀπελεύσῃ. Καὶ ἐκάλεσεν Ἀδὰμ τὸ ὄνομα τῆς γυναικὸς αὐτοῦ, Ζωή, ὅτι αὕτη μήτηρ πάντων τῶν ζώντων.

So Adam gave names to all the cattle, to all the birds of heaven, and to all the wild animals of the field. But for Adam there was not found a helper comparable to him. Thus God brought a trance upon Adam, and he slept; and He took one of his ribs, and filled up the flesh in its place. Then the Lord God built the rib He took from Adam into a woman, and brought her to him. So Adam said, “This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh. She shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man. For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife; and the two shall become one flesh.” Now the two were naked, both Adam and his wife, and were not ashamed. Now the serpent was more cunning than all the wild animals the Lord God made on the earth. And he said to the woman, “Has God indeed said, ‘You shall not eat from every tree of the garden’?” And the woman said to the serpent, “We may eat the fruit from the trees of the garden; but from the fruit of the tree in the middle of the garden, God said, ‘You shall not eat from it, nor shall you touch it, lest you die.’ ” Then the serpent said to the woman, “You shall not die by death. For God knows in the day you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like gods, knowing good and evil.” So when the woman saw the tree was good for food, was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree beautiful to contemplate, she took its fruit and ate. She also gave it to her husband with her, and he ate. Then the eyes of the two were opened, and they knew they were naked. So they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves coverings. Then they heard the voice of the Lord God walking in the garden that afternoon, and Adam and his wife hid themselves within the tree in the middle of the garden from the presence of the Lord God. So the Lord God called Adam and said to him, “Adam, where are you?” He replied, “I heard Your voice as You were walking in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked; so I hid myself.” Thus He said, “Who said you were naked? Have you eaten from the one tree from which I commanded you not to eat?” Then Adam said, “The woman You gave me, gave me of the tree, and I ate.” So the Lord God said to the woman, “What is this you have done?” The woman said, “The serpent deceived me, and I ate.” Thus the Lord God said to the serpent, “Because you have done this, you are cursed more than all cattle, and more than all the wild animals of the earth. On your breast and belly you shall go, and you shall eat dust all the days of your life. I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your seed and her seed. He shall bruise your head, and you shall be on guard for His heel.” To the woman He said, “I will greatly multiply your pain and your groaning, and in pain you shall bring forth children. Your recourse will be to your husband, and he shall rule over you.” Then to Adam He said, “Because you heeded the voice of your wife, and ate from the one tree of which I commanded you, saying, ‘You shall not eat from it,’ cursed is the ground in your labors. In toil you shall eat from it all the days of your life. Both thorns and thistles it shall bring forth for you, and you shall eat the herb of the field. In the sweat of your face you shall eat bread till you return to the ground from which you were taken. Earth you are, and to earth you shall return.” So Adam called his wife’s name Life, because she was the mother of all living. [SAAS]

Παρ 3:19-34

Pr 3:21-37

Ὁ Θεὸς τῇ σοφίᾳ ἐθεμελίωσε τὴν γῆν, ἡτοίμασε δὲ οὐρανοὺς ἐν φρονήσει. Ἐν αἰσθήσει αὐτοῦ ἄβυσσοι ἐῤῥάγησαν, νέφη δὲ ἐῤῥύει δρόσον. Υἱέ, μὴ παραῤῥυῇς, τήρησον δὲ ἐμὴν βουλὴν καὶ ἔννοιαν, ἵνα ζῇ σὴ ψυχή, καὶ χάρις ᾗ περὶ τῷ τραχήλῳ· ἔσται δὲ ἴασις ταῖς σαρξί σου, καὶ ἐπιμέλεια τοῖς ὀστέοις σου· ἵνα πορεύῃ πεποιθὼς ἐν εἰρήνῃ πάσας τὰς ὁδούς σου, ὁ δὲ πούς σου οὐ μὴ προσκόπτῃ. Ἐὰν γὰρ κάθῃ, ἄφοβος ἔσῃ, ἐὰν δὲ καθεύδῃς, ἠδέως ὑπνώσεις, καὶ οὐ φοβηθήσῃ πτόησιν ἐπελθοῦσαν, οὐδὲ ὁρμὰς ἀσεβῶν ἐπερχομένας· ὁ γὰρ Κύριος ἔσται ἐπὶ πασῶν ὁδῶν σου, καὶ ἐρείσει σὸν πόδα, μὴ ἀγρευθῇς. Μὴ ἀπόσχου εὖ ποιεῖν ἐνδεῆ, ἡνίκα ἂν ἔχῃ ἡ χείρ σου βοηθεῖν. Μὴ εἴπῃς· Ἐπανελθὼν ἐπάνηκε, καὶ αὔριον δώσω, δυνατοῦ σου ὄντος εὖ ποιεῖν· οὐ γὰρ οἶδας τὶ τέξεται ἡ ἐπιοῦσα. Μὴ τέκταινε ἐπὶ σὸν φίλον κακά, παροικοῦντα καὶ πεποιθότα ἐπὶ σοί. Μὴ φιλεχθρήσῃς πρὸς ἄνθρωπον μάτην, ἵνα μήτι εἰς σὲ ἐργάσητε κακόν. Μὴ κτήσῃ κακῶν ἀνδρῶν ὀνείδη, μηδὲ ζήλου τὰς ὁδούς αὐτῶν· ἀκάθαρτος γὰρ ἔναντι Κυρίου πᾶς παράνομος, ἐν δὲ δικαίοις οὐ συνεδρεύει. Κατάρα Κυρίου ἐν οἴκοις ἀσεβῶν, ἐπαύλεις δὲ δικαίων εὐλογοῦνται. Κύριος ὑπερηφάνοις ἀντιτάσσεται, ταπεινοῖς δὲ δίδωσι χάριν.

God by wisdom founded the earth and prepared the heavens with discernment. With perception the depths were broken up, and the clouds flowed with dew. My son, do not be careless, but keep my counsel and thinking, that your soul may live, and grace may be around your neck. And there will be healing for your flesh and care for your bones, that you may walk confidently in peace in all your ways, and your foot may not stumble. For if you sit down, you will be without fear, and if you lie down, your sleep will be pleasant. And do not be afraid of intimidation when it comes upon you, nor of the attack of the ungodly when it comes at you; for the Lord will be over all your ways, and He will plant your feet firmly, that you may not be shaken. Do not withhold doing good to the needy, when you may give a helping hand; do not say, when you are able to do good, “Come back tomorrow, and I will give you something”; for you do not know what the next day will bring forth. Do not devise evil things against your friend who dwells beside you and trusts in you. Do not be ready to quarrel with a man in vain, lest he do you some harm. Do not incur the reproach of evil men, neither seek their ways; for every lawless man is unclean before the Lord, and he does not sit among the righteous. The curse of God is in the houses of the ungodly, but He blesses the dwellings of the righteous. The Lord opposes the arrogant, but He gives grace to the humble. [SAAS]
