Prologue

Les foules dans les villes ne refusent pas à des gouvernants fraudeurs dont l’administration a été de courte durée de leur faire des portraits honorifiques. 1

Incipit (Opening Line)

ܗܢܐ ܗܟܝܠ ܓܒܪܐ ܕܬܫܒܘܚܬܐ ܕܙܕܝܩܘܬܐ: ܒܐܢܫܘܬܗ ܒܪ ܐܒܗ̈ܐ ܗܘܐ ܝܕܝ̈ܥܐ: ܕܒܥܘܬܪܐ ܟܗܝܢܝܢ ܗܘܘ: ܘܡܢ ܓܢܣܐ ܪܒܐ ܘܡܝܩܪܐ ܐܝܬܘܗܝ ܗܘܐ. 1
Cet homme digne de louange et juste était selon son humanité fils de parents célèbres et possédant une grande richesse, et il était d’une famille grande et estimée. 1

Explicit (Closing Line)

ܥܠ ܗܕܐ ܗܟܝܠ ܚܙܬܐ ܘܥܠ ܗܠܝܢ ܕܘܒܪ̈ܐ: ܘܥܠ ܗܢܐ ܫܪܪܐ ܕܗܢܐ ܒܪܢܫܐ: ܬܚܬܡ ܡܠܬܗ ܕܢܒܝܐ: ܕܛܘܒܘܗܝ ܠܥܡܐ ܕܐܝܟ ܗܟܢܐ ܐܝܬ ܠܗ: ܘܛܘܒܘܗܝ ܠܥܡܐ ܕܐܝܟ ܗܢܐ ܩܡ ܒܗ: ܒܫܡܐ ܕܐܒܐ... ܐܡܝܢ. 1
La parole du prophète peut sceller la vision de cette vie et la vérité de cet homme: «Heureux le peuple à qui il arrive ainsi, et heureux le peuple dans lequel se tient un tel», au nom du Père… Amen. 1
