Τῷ καιρῷ ἐκείνῳ, ἔστη ὁ Ἰησοῦς ἐπὶ τόπου πεδινοῦ, καὶ ὄχλος μαθητῶν αὐτοῦ, καὶ πλῆθος πολὺ τοῦ λαοῦ ἀπὸ πάσης τῆς Ἰουδαίας καὶ Ἱερουσαλὴμ καὶ τῆς παραλίου Τύρου καὶ Σιδῶνος, οἳ ἦλθον ἀκοῦσαι αὐτοῦ καὶ ἰαθῆναι ἀπὸ τῶν νόσων αὐτῶν, καὶ οἱ ὀχλούμενοι ἀπὸ πνευμάτων ἀκαθάρτων, καὶ ἐθεραπεύοντο· καὶ πᾶς ὁ ὄχλος ἐζήτει ἅπτεσθαι αὐτοῦ, ὅτι δύναμις παρʼ αὐτοῦ ἐξήρχετο καὶ ἰᾶτο πάντας. Καὶ αὐτὸς ἐπάρας τοὺς ὀφθαλμοὺς αὐτοῦ εἰς τοὺς μαθητὰς αὐτοῦ ἔλεγε· Μακάριοι οἱ πτωχοί, ὅτι ὑμετέρα ἐστὶν ἡ βασιλεία τοῦ Θεοῦ. μακάριοι οἱ πεινῶντες νῦν, ὅτι χορτασθήσεσθε. μακάριοι οἱ κλαίοντες νῦν, ὅτι γελάσετε. μακάριοί ἐστε ὅταν μισήσωσιν ὑμᾶς οἱ ἄνθρωποι, καὶ ὅταν ἀφορίσωσιν ὑμᾶς καὶ ὀνειδίσωσι καὶ ἐκβάλωσι τὸ ὄνομα ὑμῶν ὡς πονηρὸν ἕνεκα τοῦ υἱοῦ τοῦ ἀνθρώπου. χαίρετε ἐν ἐκείνῃ τῇ ἡμέρᾳ καὶ σκιρτήσατε· ἰδοὺ γὰρ ὁ μισθὸς ὑμῶν πολὺς ἐν τῷ οὐρανῷ.

At that time, Jesus stood on a level place, with a great crowd of his disciples and a great multitude of people from all Judea and Jerusalem and the seacoast of Tyre and Sidon, who came to hear him and to be healed of their diseases; and those who were troubled with unclean spirits were cured. And all the crowd sought to touch him, for power came forth from him and healed them all. And he lifted up his eyes on His disciples, and said: "Blessed are you poor, for yours is the Kingdom of God. Blessed are you that hunger now, for you shall be satisfied. Blessed are you that weep now, for you shall laugh. Blessed are you when men hate you, and when they exclude you and revile you, and cast out your name as evil, on account of the Son of man! Rejoice in that day, and leap for joy, for behold, your reward is great in heaven." [RSV]

Ἐλέησόν με, ὁ Θεός, κατὰ τὸ μέγα ἔλεός σου, καὶ κατὰ τὸ πλῆθος τῶν οἰκτιρμῶν σου ἐξάλειψον τὸ ἀνόμημά μου. Ἐπὶ πλεῖον πλῦνόν με ἀπὸ τῆς ἀνομίας μου, καὶ απὸ τῆς ἁμαρτίας μου καθάρισόν με. Ὅτι τὴν ἀνομίαν μου ἐγὼ γινώσκω, καὶ ἡ ἁμαρτία μου ἐνώπιόν μού ἐστι διὰ παντός. Σοὶ μόνῳ ἥμαρτον καὶ τὸ πονηρὸν ἐνώπιόν σου ἐποίησα, ὅπως ἂν δικαιωθῇς ἐν τοῖς λόγοις σου, καὶ νικήσῃς ἐν τῷ κρίνεσθαί σε. Ἰδοὺ γὰρ ἐν ἀνομίαις συνελήφθην, καὶ ἐν ἁμαρτίαις ἐκίσσησέ με ἡ μήτηρ μου. Ἰδοὺ γὰρ ἀλήθειαν ἠγάπησας, τὰ ἄδηλα καὶ τὰ κρύφια τῆς σοφίας σου ἐδήλωσάς μοι. Ῥαντιεῖς με ὑσσώπῳ, καὶ καθαρισθήσομαι, πλυνεῖς με, καὶ ὑπὲρ χιόνα λευκανθήσομαι. Ἀκουτιεῖς μοι ἀγαλλίασιν καὶ εὐφροσύνην, ἀγαλλιάσονται ὀστέα τεταπεινωμένα. Ἀπόστρεψον τὸ πρόσωπόν σου ἀπὸ τῶν ἁμαρτιῶν μου, καὶ πάσας τὰς ἀνομίας μου ἐξάλειψον. Καρδίαν καθαρὰν κτίσον ἐν ἐμοί, ὁ Θεός, καὶ πνεῦμα εὐθὲς ἐγκαίνισον ἐν τοῖς ἐγκάτοις μου. Μὴ ἀποῤῥίψῃς με ἀπὸ τοῦ προσώπου σου καὶ τὸ πνεῦμά σου τὸ ἅγιον μὴ ἀντανέλῃς ἀπ᾽ ἐμοῦ. Ἀπόδος μοι τὴν ἀγαλλίασιν τοῦ σωτηρίου σου καὶ πνεύματι ἡγεμονικῷ στήριξόν με. Διδάξω ἀνόμους τὰς ὁδούς σου, καὶ ἀσεβεῖς ἐπὶ σὲ ἐπιστρέψουσι. Ῥῦσαί με ἐξ αἱμάτων, ὁ Θεός, ὁ Θεὸς τῆς σωτηρίας μου· ἀγαλλιάσεται ἡ γλῶσσά μου τὴν δικαιοσύνην σου. Κύριε, τὰ χείλη μου ἀνοίξεις, καὶ τὸ στόμα μου ἀναγγελεῖ τὴν αἴνεσίν σου. Ὅτι εἰ ἠθέλησας θυσίαν, ἔδωκα ἄν· ὁλοκαυτώματα οὐκ εὐδοκήσεις. Θυσία τῷ Θεῷ πνεῦμα συντετριμμένον, καρδίαν συντετριμμένην καὶ τεταπεινωμένην ὁ Θεὸς οὐκ ἐξουδενώσει. Ἀγάθυνον, Κύριε, ἐν τῇ εὐδοκίᾳ σου τὴν Σιών, καὶ οἰκοδομηθήτω τὰ τείχη Ἰερουσαλήμ. Τότε εὐδοκήσεις θυσίαν δικαιοσύνης, ἀναφορὰν καὶ ὁλοκαυτώματα. Τότε ἀνοίσουσιν ἐπὶ τὸ θυσιαστήριόν σου μόσχους.

Have mercy on me, O God, according to Your great mercy; and according to the abundance of Your compassion, blot out my transgression. Wash me thoroughly from my lawlessness and cleanse me from my sin. For I know my lawlessness, and my sin is always before me. Against You only have I sinned and done evil in Your sight; that You may be justified in Your words, and overcome when You are judged. For behold, I was conceived in transgressions, and in sins my mother bore me. Behold, You love truth; You showed me the unknown and secret things of Your wisdom. You shall sprinkle me with hyssop, and I will be cleansed; You shall wash me, and I will be made whiter than snow. You shall make me hear joy and gladness; my bones that were humbled shall greatly rejoice. Turn Your face from my sins, and blot out all my transgressions. Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me. Do not cast me away from Your presence, and do not take Your Holy Spirit from me. Restore to me the joy of Your salvation, and uphold me with Your guiding Spirit. I will teach transgressors Your ways, and the ungodly shall turn back to You. Deliver me from bloodguiltiness, O God, the God of my salvation, and my tongue shall greatly rejoice in Your righteousness. O Lord, You shall open my lips, and my mouth will declare Your praise. For if You desired sacrifice, I would give it; You will not be pleased with whole burnt offerings. A sacrifice to God is a broken spirit, a broken and humbled heart God will not despise. Do good, O Lord, in Your good pleasure to Zion, and let the walls of Jerusalem be built; then You will be pleased with a sacrifice of righteousness, with offerings and whole burnt offerings; then shall they offer young bulls on Your altar.

To deal retribution to the nations, reproving among the peoples.

Τοῦ δῆσαι τοὺς βασιλεῖς αὐτῶν ἐν πέδαις καὶ τοὺς ἐνδόξους αὐτῶν ἐν χειροπέδαις σιδηραῖς.

To shackle their kings with chains and their nobles with fetters of iron.

Τοῦ ποιῆσαι ἐν αὐτοῖς κρῖμα ἔγγραπτον· δόξα αὕτη ἔσται πᾶσι τοῖς ὁσίοις αὐτοῦ.

To fulfill among them the written judgment: this glory have all His holy ones.

Αἰνεῖτε τὸν Θεὸν ἐν τοῖς ἁγίοις αὐτοῦ, αἰνεῖτε αὐτὸν ἐν στερεώματι τῆς δυνάμεως αὐτοῦ.

Praise God in His saints; praise Him in the firmament of His power.

Χαίροις ἀσκητικῶν.

Αἰνεῖτε αὐτὸν ἐπὶ ταῖς δυναστείαις αὐτοῦ, αἰνεῖτε αὐτὸν κατὰ τὸ πλῆθος τῆς μεγαλωσύνης αὐτοῦ.

Praise Him for His mighty acts; praise Him according to the abundance of His greatness. [SAAS]

Οἶκον τῶν ἱερῶν ἀρετῶν, προκαταστήσας σεαυτὸν Θεοδόσιε, τὸν θεῖον τῆς Θεοτόκου, κατηξιώθης ναόν, κατοικεῖν καὶ τοῦτον ἐπισκέπτεσθαι· Θεοῦ τὴν λαμπρότητα, θεωρεῖν γὰρ ἠγάπησας· τῆς ἀληθοῦς δέ, νῦν σκηνῆς τὴν εὐπρέπειαν, καὶ τὴν ἄφραστον, καθορᾷς ὡραιότητα· ἥν περ ἐθεμελίωσεν, ὁ Ὕψιστος Ὅσιε, καὶ κατοικίζει προθύμως, τοὺς πρὸς αὐτὸν ἀνανεύοντας. Αὐτὸν δωρηθῆναι, ταῖς ψυχαῖς ἡμῶν δυσώπει, τὸ μέγα ἔλεος.

O devout Theodosios, you made yourself into a house of the sacred virtues; then you were counted worthy to visit and live in the holy shrine of the Theotokos. You loved to contemplate the radiance of God. Now you behold the grandeur of the true tabernacle and its inexpressible beauty. This was founded by God Most High, and He gladly lets those who aspire to Him dwell there. Entreat Him to grant great mercy to our souls. [SD]

Αἰνεῖτε αὐτὸν ἐν ἤχῳ σάλπιγγος, αἰνεῖτε αὐτὸν ἐν ψαλτηρίῳ καὶ κιθάρᾳ.

Praise Him with the sound of trumpet; praise Him with the harp and lyre. [SAAS]

Πόνοις ἀσκητικοῖς σεαυτόν, ἀνακαθάρας μιμητὴς ἐχρημάτισας, παμμάκαρ, τοῦ σοῦ Δεσπότου· τῆς γὰρ κρασπέδων τῶν σῶν, ἁψαμένης πάθος ἐθεράπευσας· λιμῷ τηκομένους, ἐν τῇ ἐρήμῳ δὲ ἔθρεψας, ἐξ ἀκενώτου, χορηγῶν θησαυρίσματος, ὡς φερώνυμος, Θεοῦ δόσις γενόμενος. Πίστιν δὲ τὴν ὀρθόδοξον, ἐκήρυξας Ὅσιε, τὴν τοῦ τυράννου μανίαν, ἀντʼ οὐδενὸς λογισάμενος, Χριστὸν ἱκετεύων, ταῖς ψυχαῖς ἡμῶν δοθῆναι, τὸ μέγα ἔλεος.

All-blessed Saint, after you purified yourself through ascetic labors, you began to imitate your Master; for you cured the illness of the woman who touched the hem of your garment; you fed those in the desert who were suffering from famine. Your name means God's gift, and you lived up to it, ever giving from the endless treasure. Devout Theodosios, you proclaimed the Orthodox Faith, and thought nothing of the tyrant's anger. Entreat Christ to grant great mercy to our souls. [SD]

Αἰνεῖτε αὐτὸν ἐν τυμπάνῳ καὶ χορῷ, αἰνεῖτε αὐτὸν ἐν χορδαῖς καὶ ὀργάνῳ.

Praise Him with timbrel and dance; praise Him with strings and flute. [SAAS]

Φλόγα τῆς πρὸς Θεὸν ἀκλινοῦς, καὶ διαπύρου καὶ θερμῆς ἀγαπήσεως, ἐξάψας τὸν οὐρανόθεν, ἀντεκομίσω πυρσόν, εὐδοκίαν θείαν σοι μηνύοντα, ναὸν ἁγιώτατον, ἀρετῆς παιδευτήριον, οἰκοδομῆσαι, καὶ ψυχῶν φροντιστήριον· ὃν ἀρξάμενος, εὐσεβῶς ἐτελείωσας· ἔνθα καὶ τὸ πολύαθλον, κατάκειται σῶμά σου, θήκαις ὁσίαις Παμμάκαρ, διαφερόντως τιμώμενον. Χριστὸν δωρηθῆναι, ταῖς ψυχαῖς ἡμῶν δυσώπει, τὸ μέγα ἔλεος.

You kindled in yourself the flame of ardent and fervent and unyielding love for God; and from heaven you received a beacon of fire in return, showing God's good pleasure, which instructed you to build a most holy church, a school of virtue, and a training ground of souls. You started it, and piously finished it. * Now your body, which labored much, reposes there, and it is especially honored among the other sacred caskets. O all-blessed Father, entreat Christ to grant great mercy to our souls. [SD]

Αἰνεῖτε αὐτὸν ἐν κυμβάλοις εὐήχοις, αἰνεῖτε αὐτὸν ἐν κυμβάλοις ἀλαλαγμοῦ. Πᾶσα πνοὴ αἰνεσάτω τὸν Κύριον.

Praise Him with resounding cymbals; praise Him with triumphant cymbals; let everything that breathes praise the Lord. [SAAS]

Ὄντως ἕως σκηνῆς θαυμαστῆς, ἕως τοῦ οἴκου τοῦ Θεοῦ Θεοδόσιε, διῆλθες ἀγαλλιάσει, καὶ εὐφροσύνῃ ψυχῆς, ἔνθα ἦχος Πάτερ ἐορτάζοντος, τερπνῆς ἀκουσάμενος, καὶ γλυκείας ὑμνήσεως, καὶ τῆς ἀφράστου, θυμηδίας καὶ τέρψεως, γενησόμενος, ἐν μεθέξει μακάριε, ἧς μόνης ἐφιέμενος, τὴν σάρκα ἐνέκρωσας, ἧς καὶ ἐπέτυχες θείᾳ, δικαιοσύνῃ κοσμούμενος, Χριστὸν ἱκετεύων, ταῖς ψυχαῖς ἡμῶν δοθῆναι, τὸ μέγα ἔλεος.

O Theodosios, you have truly gone over to the wondrous tabernacle, the house of God, with joy and gladness, where are heard delightful sounds of festive songs, and the sweet voices of those who celebrate, and where you also are participating in joy of heart and ineffable delight. For you mortified the flesh, and desired only that joy; and having found it, O Father, you are adorned with God's righteousness. Entreat Christ to grant great mercy on our souls. [SD]

That ladder of the virtues, he proved to be an example for us on earth. So let us extol him, as the jewel of ascetics. He truly practiced ascetic discipline, like Anthony the Great, and he attained immense humility. He shepherded his people in Orthodox manner, and herded them into the holy fold, where the host of Saints has settled. Let us say to him earnestly: "Do not ever forget your flock, O all-blessed Theodosios, but intercede with the Lord to save us, we pray." [SD]

Today Christ came to be baptized in the Jordan. Today John touches the head of the Master. The hosts of heaven were astounded seeing the paradoxal mystery. The sea beheld it and fled; when the Jordan saw, it retreated. And we who are now illumined cry aloud, * "Glory be to God who appeared, and who was seen on earth, and who illumined the world." [SD]
