Prologue

    ܕܘܒܪ̈ܐ ܫܦܝܪ̈ܐ ܘܡܫܡ̈ܠܝܐ ܕܐܢܫ̈ܐ ܬܩ̈ܢܐ ܥܬܝܪ̈ܝ ܒܐܠܗܐ. ܘܡܣ̈ܟܢܐ ܕܡܢ ܩܢܝ̈ܢܐ ܥܒܘܪ̈ܐ ܩܪ̈ܒܬܢܐ ܕܠܘܩܒܠ ܛܘܥܝܝ. ܚܝܠܬ̈ܢܐ ܕܠܘܩܒܠ ܒܥܠܕܪܐ. ܪ̈ܚܡܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܘܒܥܠܕܒ̈ܒܐ ܕܣܛܢܐ. ܒܟܠ ܐܬܪ ܘܒܟܠ ܡܕܝܢܐ. ܐܬܟܬܒܘ ܘܐܬܚܬܡܘ ܠܫܘܪܪܐ ܕܦܠܝܓܘܬ ܪܥܝܢܐ ܪܦܝܐ. 1
    Les vies belles et parfaites des hommes droits, riches en Dieu et pauvres des biens passagers, combatifs contre l’erreur, forts contre l’Adversaire, amis de Dieu et ennemis de Satan, ont été écrites et achevées dans tous les pays et dans toutes les villes pour affermir le doute du troupeau hésitant. 1

Incipit (Opening Line)

    ܗܢܐ ܗܟܝܠ ܛܘܒܢܐ ܡܪܝ ܡܥܝܢ ܐܝܬܘܗܝ ܗܘܐ ܡܢ ܫܝܓܪ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܕܒܝܬ ܦܪ̈ܣܝܐ. ܘܣܓܝ ܐܬܪܕܝ ܒܣܦܪܐ ܘܒܡܓܘܫܘܬܐ. 1
    Or donc ce bienheureux Mâr Ma‘în était originaire de la ville de Sînjar en Perse et il avait été éduqué abondamment dans les lettres et dans la science des mages. 1

Explicit (Closing Line)

    ܘܥܡܪ ܬ̈ܠܬܝܢ ܘܫ̈ܒܥ ܫ̈ܢܝܢ ܒܛܘܪܐ ܕܫܝܓܪ. ܟܕ ܒܢܐ ܕܝܪ̈ܬܐ. ܘܫ̈ܒܥ ܫ̈ܢܝܢ ܒܟܘܪܚܐ ܕܥܢܬ ܥܠ ܓܒ ܦܪܬ. ܘܫܬ ܫ̈ܢܝܢ ܒܛܘܪܐ ܒܫܕܒܘ ܩܪܝܬܐ. ܘܫܠܡ ܝܘܡ̈ܬܗ ܒܫܡܐ ܫܦܝܪܐ. ܕܘܟܪܢܗ ܠܒܘܪܟܬܐ... ܐܡܝܢ. 1
    Et il passa trente-sept ans dans la montagne de Sînjar, bâtissant des monastères, sept ans dans la cellule de ‘Anat au bord de l’Euphrate, et six ans dans la montagne au village de Shadbô, et il acheva ses jours dans une belle réputation. Que sa mémoire soit source de bénédiction… Amen. 1
