Ἀθλητικαὶ ἐνστάσεις ἐπὶ τῷ σκάμματι, τυραννικαὶ αἰκίσεις ἐπὶ τοὺς Μάρτυρας, καὶ ἵσταντο χοροὶ τῶν Ἀσωμάτων, βραβεῖα κατέχοντες τῆς νίκης, ἐξέστησαν τυράννους, καὶ Βασιλεῖς οἱ σοφοί, καθεῖλον τὸν Βελίαρ, ὁμολογίᾳ Χριστοῦ, ὁ ἐνισχύσας αὐτούς, Κύριε δόξα σοι.

The martyr athletes offered resistance in the ring, * contesting for the faith, and the tyrants tortured them. * The hosts of Incorporeals observed and were holding the victory medals. * The truly wise contestants amazed the tyrants and kings. * They overturned the devil by their confession of Christ. * O Lord, who strengthened them, glory to You. [SD]

Στίχ. Θαυμαστὸς ὁ Θεὸς ἐν τοῖς ἁγίοις αὐτοῦ.

Verse: God is wondrous in His saints. [SAAS]

Ἀθλητικὸν ἀγῶνα ὑπομείναντες οἱ Ἅγιοι, καὶ τὰ βραβεῖα τῆς νίκης παρὰ σοῦ κομισάμενοι, κατήργησαν τὰς ἐπινοίας τῶν παρανόμων, ἐδέξαντο τοὺς στεφάνους τῆς ἀφθαρσίας. Διʼ αὐτῶν ὁ Θεὸς δυσωπούμενος, δώρησαι ἡμῖν τὸ μέγα ἔλεος.

The holy athletes endured the contest, and they received from You the medals of victory. They destroyed the machinations of the lawless, and they received the crowns of incorruption. Through them, O God, save our souls. [SD]

Στίχ. Τοῖς ἁγίοις τοῖς ἐν τῇ γῇ αὐτοῦ ἐθαυμάστωσεν ὁ Κύριος.

Verse: To the saints on His earth, in them He magnified all His will. [SAAS]

Τῶν Ἁγίων σου ἡ μνήμη Κύριε, ἀνεδείχθη ὡς παράδεισος ὁ ἐν Ἐδέμ· ἐν αὐτῇ γὰρ ἀγάλλεται πᾶσα ἡ κτίσις. Διὸ παράσχου ἡμῖν, τῇ αὐτῶν παρακλήσει, εἰρήνην καὶ τὸ μέγα ἔλεος.

O Lord, the memory of Your Saints is like the Garden of Eden, for all creation greatly rejoices in it. Grant us peace and great mercy, by their intercessions. [SD]

Δόξα· καὶ νῦν. Θεοτοκίον.

Ὁ τὴν εὐλογημένην καλέσας σου Μητέρα ἦλθες ἐπὶ τὸ πάθος ἑκουσίᾳ βουλῇ, λάμψας ἐν τῷ Σταυρῷ, ἀναζητῆσαι θέλων τὸν Ἀδάμ, λέγων τοῖς Ἀγγέλοις· Συγχάρητέ μοι, ὅτι εὑρέθη ἡ ἀπολομένη δραχμή, ὁ πάντα σοφῶς οἰκονομήσας, δόξα σοι.

O Lord, who called the blessed Maid Your Mother, You came to the Passion of Your own will and intent. Adam You wished to seek; You therefore shone upon the Cross, saying to the Angels, "Rejoice with me together, for I have found the coin that was lost." O Lord, You have disposed all things wisely. Glory to You. [SD]

Ἡ στιχολογία τοῦ Ἀμώμου εἰς δύο στάσεις γίνεται. Ὁ ἀναγνώστης ἄρχεται καὶ ἀναγινώσκει χῦμα ὅλους τοὺς στίχους μέχρι τοῦ "Εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα οὐ μὴ ἐπιλάθωμαι…," ὅστις ψάλλεται τρίς. Ὁ ἱερεὺς μνημονεύει τῶν κεκοιμημένων· καὶ μετὰ τὴν ἐκφώνησιν ἄρχεται ὁ ἀναγνώστης ἀπὸ τοῦ στίχου "Σός εἰμι ἐγώ, σῶσόν με.." μέχρι τέλους· τὸ δὲ τέλος ἁπὸ τοῦ "Ζήσεται ἡ ψυχή μου…" ψάλλεται πάλιν τρίς. Καὶ εὐθὺς ἐπισυνάπτονται τὰ νεκρώσιμα εὐλογητάρια. Εἶτα ὁ ἱερεὺς ἐπαναλαμβάνει τὴν δέησιν ὑπὲρ τῶν κεκοιμημένων καὶ μετʼ αὐτὴν ψάλλεται τὸ κάθισμα. Ἐν ταῖς ἐνορίαις, παραλειπομένου συνήθως τοῦ Ἀμώμου, εὐθὺς μετὰ τὰ καθίσματα τῆς αʹ στιχολογίας ψάλλονται τὰ εὐλογητάρια, γίνεται ἅπαξ ἡ δέησις καὶ μετʼ αὐτὴν ψάλλονται τὰ ἕτερα καθίσματα.

Psalm 118 is recited in two stanzas. The reader begins reading up to v. 93 ("I will never forget…," which is sung three times. Then the priest does the litany for the deceased. After the exclamation, the reader resumes reading, from v. 94 ("I am Yours…") until the end, at which point v. 175 and v. 176 are joined ("My soul shall live… I went astray…") and sung three times, followed immediately by the Evlogetaria for the Dead. Then the priest repeats the litany for the deceased. After that, the hymns of the second kathisma are sung. In the parishes, where the Psalm is typically not read, the hymns of the first kathisma are immediately followed by the Evlogetaria for the Dead; then the litany for the deceased is done, once, followed by the he hymns of the second kathisma.

Of old You created me from nothing and honored me with Your divine image. But when I disobeyed Your commandment, O Lord, You cast me down to the earth from where I was taken. Lead me back again to Your likeness, and renew my original beauty. [HC]

Εὐλογητὸς εἶ, Κύριε, δίδαξόν με τὰ δικαιώματά σου.

Blessed are You, O Lord, teach me Your statutes.

Εἰκών εἰμι, τῆς ἀῤῥήτου δόξης σου, εἰ καὶ στίγματα φέρω πταισμάτων, οἰκτείρησον τὸ σὸν πλάσμα, Δέσποτα, καὶ καθάρισον σῇ εὐσπλαγχνίᾳ, καὶ τὴν ποθεινὴν πατρίδα παράσχου μοι, Παραδείσου πάλιν ποιῶν πολίτην με.

I am an image of Your ineffable glory, though I bear the scars of my transgressions. On Your creation, Master, take pity and cleanse me by Your compassion. Grant me the homeland for which I long and once again make me a citizen of Paradise. [HC]

Ἀνάπαυσον, ὁ Θεὸς τοὺς δούλούς σου, καὶ κατάταξον αὐτοὺς ἐν Παραδείσῳ, ὅπου χοροὶ τῶν Ἁγίων, Κύριε, καὶ οἱ δίκαιοι ἐκλάμψουσιν ὡς φωστῆρες, τοὺς κεκοιμημένους δούλους σου ἀνάπαυσον, παρορῶν αὐτῶν πάντα τὰ ἐγκλήματα.

Give rest, O God, to Your servant, and place him (her) in Paradise where the choirs of the Saints and the righteous will shine as the stars of heaven. To Your departed servant give rest, O Lord, and forgive all his (her) offenses. [HC]

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.

Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will to men. We praise you, we bless you, we worship you, we glorify you, and we thank you, for your great glory. Lord, King, Heavenly God, Father Almighty; only-begotten Son, Lord Jesus Christ and Holy Spirit. Lord God, the Lamb of God, the Son of the Father, who take away the sin of the world, have mercy on us, you who take away the sins of the world. Accept our supplication, you who sit at the right of the Father, and have mercy on us. For you are the only Holy One, you are the only Lord, Jesus Christ, to the glory of God the Father. Amen. Every day I shall bless you, and I shall praise your name forever, and unto the ages of ages. Lord, you have become for us a refuge from generation to generation. I have said: Lord, have mercy on me, heal my soul, for I have sinned against you. Lord, to you I have fled; teach me to do your will, for you are my God. For with you is the fountain of life; in your light we shall see light. Extend your mercy to those who know you. Grant, O Lord, that in this day we may be kept without sin. Blessed are you, O Lord, the God of our Fathers, and praised and glorified is your name unto the ages. Amen. Let your mercy, Lord, come upon us, just as we have hoped in you. Blessed are you, O Lord, teach me your commandments. Blessed are you, O Master, make me understand your commandments. Blessed are you, O Holy One, enlighten me with your commandments. Lord, your mercy remains forever, do not turn away from the works of your hands. To you belongs praise, to you belongs a hymn, to you belongs glory, to the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, now and ever and to the ages of ages. Amen.
