Prologue

ܚܒܝ̈ܒܝ: ܟܠܗܝܢ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܟܬܒ ܡܘܫܐ ܪܒܐ ܒܢܒܝ̈ܐ: ܐܝܟ ܢܡܘܣܐ ܕܩܒܠ ܡܢ ܐܠܗܐ: ܠܐ ܗܘܝ̈ ܕܠܐ ܝܘܬܪܢ. ܡܛܠ ܕܗܘ ܢܡܘܣܐ ܗܘܐ ܠܢ ܡܒܕܩܢܐ ܥܠ ܡܫܝܚܐ: ܐܝܟ ܡܠܬܐ ܕܡܕܒܪܢܘܬܐ: ܐܟܡܐ ܕܐܡܪ ܘܐܪܬܝ ܠܢ ܦܘܠܘܣ ܫܠܝܚܐ. 1
Mes bien-aimés, tout ce qu’a écrit Moïse, grand parmi les prophètes, comme une loi reçue de Dieu, n’est pas sans utilité, car c’est la loi qui a été pour nous révélatrice du Christ, selon la parole de l’Économie, comme a dit et nous a instruit l’apôtre Paul. 1

Incipit (Opening Line)

ܗܢܐ ܕܝܢ: ܚܒܝ̈ܒܝ: ܪܒܐ ܘܓܡܝܪܐ ܕܕܚܠܬ ܐܠܗܐ ܐܒܐ ܡܩܪܝܣ ܩܕܝܫܐ ܘܕܟܝܐ ܘܒܬܘܠܐ: ܐܝܬܘܗܝ ܗܘ̣ܐ ܡܢ ܐܒܗ̈ܐ ܟܐܢ̈ܐ: ܘܡܢ ܛܘܗܡܐ ܡܝܩܪܐ ܘܝܕܝܥܐ ܘܡܝܬܪܐ ܒܕܐܠܗܐ ܘܒܕܒܢܝ̈ܢܫܐ: ܕܚܐܿܝܢ ܗܘ̣ܘ ܒܕܚܠܬ ܐܠܗܐ: ܟܕ ܡܫܡܫܝܢ ܠܗ ܣܓܝ... 1
Or, mes bien-aimés, ce grand et parfaitement pieux Abbâ Macaire, homme saint et pur, était le fils de parents justes et d’une famille honorable, connue et vertueuse, selon Dieu et selon les hommes, qui vivaient dans la crainte de Dieu en le servant avec zèle… 1

Explicit (Closing Line)

ܘܗܝܕܝܢ ܚܛܦܗ ܘܚܦܝܗ ܡܢܗܘܢ: ܘܐܥܠܗ ܠܐܘܢ̈ܐ ܕܝܠܗ ܫܒܝ̈ܚܐ ܗܘ ܦܪܘܩܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܡܫܝܚܐ: ܗܘܿ ܕܐܚܒܗ ܡܢ ܠܒܗ. ܬܗܘܐ ܘܬܫܬܡܠܐ ܥܠܝܢ ܐܦ ܚܢܢ: ܕܢܫܬܘܐ ܠܗܢܘܿܢ ܐܘܢ̈ܐ: ܕܐܫܬܘܝ ܠܗܘܢ ܗܘ ܩܕܝܫܐ ܐܒܘܢ ܐܒܐ ܡܩܪܝܣ: ܒܛܝܒܘܬܐ ܘܒܪ̈ܚܡܐ ܘܒܪܚܡܬ ܐܢܫܘܬܐ ܕܝܠܗ ܕܡܪܢ... ܐܡܝܢ. 1
Alors notre Sauveur Jésus-Christ, qu’il avait aimé de tout son coeur, le déroba et le leur cacha et il le fit entrer dans ses demeures glorieuses. Qu’il advienne et qu’il nous soit confirmé que nous soyons jugés dignes de ces demeures desquelles a été jugé digne notre saint Père Abbâ Macaire, par la grâce, la miséricorde et l’amour pour les hommes de notre Seigneur… Amen. 1
