ܒܛܝܒܘܬܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ: ܣܒܪܬܐ ܬܚܝܬ ܫܡܝܐ ܒܐܪܥܐ ܟܠܗܿ ܐܙܕܪܥܬ: ܡܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܡܫܝܚܐ ܦܪܘܩܐ ܕܟܠܗܘܢ ܒܢܝ̈ܢܫܐ: ܕܢܗܝܡܢ ܟܠܢܫ ܒܐܠܗܐ ܐܚܝܕ ܟܠ: ܘܒܝܫܘܥ ܡܫܝܚܐ ܒܪܐ ܝܚܝܕܝܐ: ܘܒܪܘܚܐ ܚܝܐ ܘܩܕܝܫܐ. 1

Explicit (Closing Line)

ܘܟܕ ܐܡܪ ܗܠܝܢ: ܐܝܠܠ ܒܩܠܐ ܪܡܐ ܘܐܨܛܪܝ ܠܬܪܝܢ: ܘܐܬܒܕܪ ܒܣܪܗ ܡܢܗ: ܘܓܪ̈ܡܘܗܝ ܠܐ ܐܫܬܟܚܘ. ܗܕܐ ܒܢܒܝܘܬܐ ܗܘܬ ܠܗ. ܕܒܝܕ ܨ̈ܠܘܬܐ ܕܝܠܕܬ ܐܠܗܐ ܒܬܘܠܬܐ ܡܪܝܡ... ܘܢܪܡܪܡ ܩܪܢܐ ܕܟܪ̈ܣܛܝܢܐ ܠܥܠܡ ܥܠܡܝܢ: ܐܡܝܢ. 1
Et après avoir dit cela, il poussa une forte lamentation et il se déchira en deux, et sa chair se répandit et ses os devinrent introuvables. Cela lui advint conformément à la prophétie. Par les prières de la Mère de Dieu la Vierge Marie… qu’il exalte la puissance des chrétiens pour les siècles des siècles. Amen. 1
