Ἄριστα λία καὶ θεόπνευστα πάντα,
Τὰ συγγράμματα πατέρων τῶν ὁσίων·
Τοῦ δέ γε θείου τὸ παρὸν ἰωάννου,
Πόνημα καὶ μάλιστα διαφερόντως·
Ὅτι καλλίστως καὶ εὐκρινῶς ἐν τούτῳ,
Ἐξαποπλέκει πλεκτάνας παθημάτων:
Εἴκειν δ’ εὐφυῶς, τῷ λόγῳ ὑφηγεῖται·
Σκαιῶν δ’ἐννοιῶν καὶ σκοτεινῶν πνευμάτων·
Ποιεῖ τηλαυγῶς διακρίνειν τὴν πλάνην·
Τίς δ’οὗτος εἱρμὸν ἢ σύνθεσιν ἢ τάξιν,
Ἀρετῆς ἐκδέδωκεν ὥσπερ ἐκεῖνος·
Ταύτην τευχάνας οἱονεὶ καὶ συθήρας·
Ὣςπέρ τινα κλίμακα τοὺς ἑλομένους·
Εἰς ὕψος ἀνάγουσαν θεολογί(ας)·
Θεωρίας τε τ(ῆς) ἀκτίστου καὶ θείας·
Καὶ μακαρίας ζωαρχικῆς τριάδος·
Ἣν εἰλικρινῶς σέβοιμεν εἰς αἰῶνας·-
