Incipit (Opening Line)

ܡܢܐ ܟܝ ܡܩ̈ܒܝܐ. ܕܗܠܝܢ ܗܘ ܓܝܪ ܚܓܐ ܕܩܐܿܡ. ܕܠܘ ܠܘܬ ܣ̈ܓܝܐܐ ܡܿܢ ܡܬܝܩܪܝܢ: ܡܛܠ ܕܠܘ ܒܬܪ ܡܫܝܚܐ ܗܝ ܐܬܠܝܛܘܬܗܘܢ. 1
Pourquoi donc les Maccabées? Parce que la présente fête est la leur, eux qui ne sont pas honorés par beaucoup parce que leur combat ne fut pas livré après le Christ. 1

Explicit (Closing Line)

ܐܝܟܢܐ ܕܐܦ ܒܝܕ ܥܬܝܩܬܐ ܘܚܕܬܐ̣. ܢܨܠܚ ܐܠܗܐ ܒܢ. ܗܿܘ ܕܒܒܪܐ ܘܒܪܘܚܐ ܩܕܝܫܐ ܡܫܬܒܚ. ܘܝܕܥܿ ܠܗܿܢܘܢ ܕܝܠܗ ܘܡܬܝܕܥ ܡܢ ܗܿܢܘܢ ܕܝܠܗ. ܟܕ ܡܬܬܘܕܐ ܘܡܿܘܕܐ. ܘܡܫܬܒܚ ܘܡܫܒܚ. ܒܗ ܒܡܫܝܚܐ ܡܪܢ. ܕܠܗ ܫܘܒܚܐ ܘܐܘܚܕܢܐ ܗܫܘ ܘܒܟܠܙܒܢ ܫܠܥܠܡ ܥܠܡܝܢ ܐܡܝܢ. 1
Pour que Dieu prospère en nous, lui qui est loué dans le Fils et dans l’Esprit Saint, lui qui connaît les siens et est connu d’eux, lui qui est confessé et confesse, lui qui est loué et loue dans le Christ notre Seigneur; à lui la gloire et le pouvoir, maintenant et en tout temps et dans les siècles des siècles. Amen. 1
