Prologue

ܥܠ ܕܘܒܪ̈ܝܗܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܕܣܗ̈ܕܐ ܩܕܝ̈ܫܐ ܕܐܬܬܕܝܢܘ ܡܢ ܪ̈ܫܝܥܐ: ܘܥܠ ܢܨܚܢܝ̈ܗܘܢ ܠܡܬܢܝܘ ܘܠܡܫܬܥܝܘ ܣܓܝܐܐ ܗܝ. 1
Il y a beaucoup à raconter et à exposer sur les vies et les hauts faits des saints martyrs qui ont été jugés par les impies. 1

Incipit (Opening Line)

ܐܣܬܩܒܠ ܕܝܢ ܛܘܒܢܐ ܩܘܙܡܐ ܢܦܝܩ ܗܘ̣ܐ ܕܢܣܥܘܪ ܟܪ̈ܝܗܐ: ܡܛܠ ܕܫܒܬܗ ܗܘ̣ܬ: ܘܛܘܒܢܐ ܕܡܝܢܐ ܒܚܢܘܬܐ ܐܝܬܘܗܝ ܗܘ̣ܐ. 1
Il arriva que le bienheureux Côme sortait pour visiter les malades, car c’était sa semaine, et le bienheureux Damien était à la boutique. 1

Explicit (Closing Line)

ܟܠܡܢ ܕܝܢ ܕܟܐܒܐ ܐܘ ܐܘܠܨܢܐ ܗܘܿܐ ܠܗ ܒܐܬܪܐ ܗܘܿ: ܠܘܬ ܓܪ̈ܡܝܗܘܢ ܕܛܘ̈ܒܢܐ ܪܗܿܛ ܗܘ̣ܐ: ܘܥܘܕܪܢܐ ܡܢܗܘܢ ܡܩܒܠ ܗܘ̣ܐ: ܟܠ ܝܘ̈ܡܝ ܚܝܘ̈ܗܝ ܕܥܠܡܐ. ܗܢܘܢ ܕܒܨ̈ܠܘܬܗܘܢ... ܐܡܝܢ. 1
Quiconque avait quelque maladie ou quelque nécessité dans cette région, courait aux ossements des bienheureux et il recevait d’eux secours tous les jours de sa vie terrestre. Que par leurs prières… Amen. 1
