Incipit (Opening Line)

ܩܕܝܫܬܐ ܘܫܘܝܬ ܠܛܘ̈ܒܐ ܡܠܢܝܐ ܐܝܬܝܗܿ ܗܘ̣ܬ ܒܓܢܣܗܿ ܡܢ ܐܣܦܢܝܐ: ܐܘ ܟܝܬ ܡܢ ܪܗܘܡܐ: ܒܪܬܗ ܕܡܪܩܠܝܢܘܣ ܐܘܦܗܦܛܘܢ... 1
La sainte et enviable Mélanie était par sa famille originaire d’Espagne ou bien de Rome, fille de Marcellinus, apo hypatôn. 1

Explicit (Closing Line)

ܘܗܟܢܐ ܐܫܩܠܬ ܠܘܬ ܡܫܝܚܐ ܡܪܗܿ. ܗܘܿ ܕܢܬܠ ܠܢ ܒܝܕ ܪ̈ܚܡܘܗܝ: ܕܒܨ̈ܠܘܬܗܿ ܢܬܡܨܐ ܠܡܬܓܢܒܪܘ ܐܟܘܬܗܿ ܒܕܡܘܬܗܿ: ܘܢܚܙܝܗܿ ܥܡ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܩܕܝ̈ܫܐ... ܐܡܝܢ. 1
Et ainsi elle s’envola vers le Christ son Seigneur; qu’il (nous) donne dans sa miséricorde que par ses prières nous puissions être fermes comme elle et la voir avec tous les saints… Amen. 1
