Prologue

ܡܘܫܐ ܐܠܗܝܐ ܣܐܿܡ ܢܡܘܣܐ: ܗܘܿ ܕܠܐܫܬܗ ܕܝܡܐ ܓ̣ܠܐ: ܘܐܪܥܐ ܨܗܝܬܐ ܒܡܝ̈ܐ ܐܛܝܦ: ܘܐܚܪ̈ܢܝܬܐ ܬܕܡܪ̈ܬܐ ܣܓܝ̈ܐܬܐ ܥܒܕ: ܘܕܘܒܪ̈ܐ ܕܩܕܝ̈ܫܐ ܕܗܘܘ ܒܙܒ̈ܢܐ ܩܕܡܝ̈ܐ ܐܟܬܒ. 1
Moïse, législateur de Dieu, celui qui a découvert le fond de la mer, qui a inondé la terre aride, et qui a accompli beaucoup d’autres choses admirables, a aussi écrit les vies des saints qui furent dans les premiers temps. 1

Incipit (Opening Line)

ܢܨܝܒܝܢ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܐܝܬܝܗܿ ܒܝܬ ܬܚܘܡܐ ܕܪ̈ܗܘܡܝܐ ܘܕܦܪ̈ܣܝܐ: ܗܝܿ ܕܡܢ ܩܕܝܡ ܡܕܐܬܐ ܠܪܗܘܡܐ ܡܣܩܐ ܗܘ̣ܬ: ܘܬܚܝܬ ܫܘܠܛܢܗܘܢ ܐܝܬܝܗܿ ܗܘ̣ܬ. ܡܢܗܿ ܕܗܕܐ ܐܝܬܘܗܝ ܗܘ̣ܐ ܛܘܒܢܐ ܝܥܩܘܒ. 1
Nisibe est une ville aux confins de la Romanie et de la Perse, qui auparavant payait tribut à Rome et se trouvait sous leur pouvoir. De cette ville était le bienheureux Jacques. 1

Explicit (Closing Line)

ܘܒܫܘܒܚܐ ܪܒܐ ܡܢ ܥܠܡܐ ܗܢܐ ܢܦܩ. ܗܠܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܕܘܒܪ̈ܘܗܝ ܕܗܢܐ ܡܝܬܪܐ: ܕܒܨ̈ܠܘܬܗ ܢܚܕܪ ܡܪܝܐ ܠܥܕܬܗ ܢܛܘܪܘܬܐ ܕܡܠܐܟܘ̈ܗܝ ܩܕܝ̈ܫܐ... ܐܡܝܢ. 1
Et avec une grande gloire il sortit de ce monde. Telle fut la vie de cet excellent homme; par ses prières que le Seigneur entoure son Église de la garde de ses saints anges… Amen. 1
