Prologue

ܐܬܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܡܟܝܠ ܠܘܬ ܬܫܥܝܬܐ ܚܢܝܓܬܐ ܘܫܪܒܐ ܕܩܛܠܗ ܕܣܗܕܐ ܩܕܝܫܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ: ܡܪܝ ܫܡܥܘܢ ܪܫ ܐܦܣܩ̈ܘܦܐ ܘܩܬܘܠܝܩܐ ܕܥܕܬܐ ܕܡܕܢܚܐ: ܕܗܘ ܩܕܡܝܐ ܐܬܢܨܚ ܒܐܪܥܐ ܕܡܕܢܚܐ ܒܣܗܕܘܬܐ ܛܒܬܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ. 1
Nous en venons donc à l’histoire douloureuse et au récit du meurtre du saint martyr de Dieu Mâr Simon, archevêque et catholicos de l’Église d’Orient, qui fut le premier à triompher dans la terre d’Orient par le bon martyre de Dieu. 1

Incipit (Opening Line)

ܢܫܪܐ ܒܗܿ ܡܟܝܠ ܒܬܫܥܝܬܐ ܕܪܕܘܦܝܗܘܢ ܘܕܩܛܠܝ̈ܗܘܢ ܕܣܗ̈ܕܐ ܩܕܝ̈ܫܐ: ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܡܢ ܠܥܠ ܫܡܗܝ̈ܗܘܢ ܐܬܥܗܕܢܢ. ܒܫܢܬ ܫܬܡܐܐ ܘܚܡܫܝܢ ܘܚܡܫ ܕܡܠܟܘܬܗ ܕܐܠܟܣܢܕܪܘܣ: ܕܗܝ ܗ̣ܝ ܫܢܬ ܡܐܬܝܢ ܘܬܫܥܝܢ ܘܫܬ ܕܡܢ ܒܬܪ ܙܩܝܦܘܬܗ ܕܡܪܢ: ܕܐܝܬܝܗܿ ܫܢܬ ܡܐܐ ܘܫܒܥܣܪ̈ܐ ܫܢ̈ܝܢ ܠܡܠܟܘܬܐ ܕܦܪ̈ܣܝܐ: ܕܗܝ ܗ̣ܝ ܫܢܬ ܬܠܬܝܢ ܘܚܕܐ ܕܫܒܘܪ ܡܠܟܐ ܒܪܗ ܕܗܘܪܡܝܙܕ... 1
Commençons donc l’histoire des persécutions et des meurtres des saints martyrs dont nous avons mentionné les noms ci-dessus. En l’an 655 du règne d’Alexandre, qui est l’an 296 après la crucifixion de notre Seigneur, 117 du règne des Perses, 31 du roi Shahpour fils de Hormizd… 1

Explicit (Closing Line)

ܘܐܝܟ ܚܐܿܣ ܗܘ̣ܐ ܥܠܝܗܘܢ: ܡܛܠ ܕܓܠܘܝ̈ܐ ܗܘ̣ܘ. ܗܠܝܢ ܕܝܢ ܕܥܕܡܐ ܠܗܪܟܐ ܗܟܢܐ ܐܣܬܥܪ. ܫܘܠܡܐ ܗܟܝܠ ܕܬܫܥܝܬܐ ܕܢܨܚܢܘ̈ܗܝ ܕܩܕܝܫܐ ܫܡܥܘܢ ܐܦܣܩܘܦܐ ܩܬܘܠܝܩܐ ܕܡܕܢܚܐ: ܗܘܿ ܕܡܬܩܪܐ ܒܪܨܒܥ̈ܐ... ܕܨܠܘܬܗܘܢ ܥܠ ܟܠܢ: ܐܡܝܢ. 1
Et, en quelque sorte, il les épargnait parce qu’ils étaient des exilés. Tout ce qui a été dit jusqu’ici a été fait ainsi. Fin donc de l’histoire des hauts faits de saint Simon, évêque catholicos de l’Orient, appelé Barsabba‘é… dont la prière soit sur nous tous. Amen. 1
