στίχοι μακαρίου
 
Ὅρα ἀδελφὲ τὰ πάντα
ἀκριβῶς τὰ γεγραμμένα: |
ὅσα ἐν τῆ βίβλω ταύτη
κ(α)τετέθησ(αν) ἐγγράφ(ως)· |
ὅπ(ως) σὺ ὁ ἔχων ταύτ(ην),
ταῦτ(α) πάντ(α) ἐκκαρποῦσαι· |
(καὶ) διδάσκεσαι καθ' ὥραν
(καὶ) φωτίζεσαι τῆ γνώσει. |
ἀλλὰ μή π(ως) τῆ οἰήσει
δι' αὐτῶν εἰς σὲ προσάξης· |
ἀλλὰ μᾶλλον μετὰ φόβου
τοῦ θ(εο)ῦ (καὶ) ταπεινώσει, |
οὕτ(ως) ταῦτ(α) (καὶ) μετέρχου
(καὶ) ἐν τῆ καρδία ἔχε, |
μιμνησκόμ(εν)ο(ς) καθ' ὥραν,
ποῦ ἐστ(ιν) ὁ ταῦτ(α) γράψ(ας). |
οὐχ᾽ ἡ γῆ (καὶ) τέφρα πέλει,
(καὶ) ἐν τάφω ἀπεκλείσθη· |
οὕτ(ως) πᾶς τ(ις) ζῶν ἐνταῦθ(α),
κἂν μὴ θέλει· λοιπ(ὸν) θνήσκει· |
(καὶ) οὐ τέχνη λοιπ(ὸν) μένει·
οὐδὲ ὤφελος ἐκ ταύτ(ης), |
εἰ μὴ πρᾶξιν ἀγαθήν τε,
φέρει ἐν αὐτῶ ὡς θέμ(ις). |
(καὶ) σὺ οὖν ἀγαπητ(έ) μου,
σπούδαξε κτισθῆν(αι) πράξιν, |
(καὶ) μὴ ὡς ἐγὼ ὁ τάλας,
ὁ μηδὲν ἀγαθὸν ἔχων· |
οὕτ(ως) γ(ὰρ) ἐν ταπεινώσει,
εἰς τὸ ἀγαθὸν ἐργάξη, |
ὤφελος εἰς σὲ ἐκ ταύτ(ης),
οὐ μικρ(ὸν) τ(ῆς) βίβλου κτήση· |
αὕτη γ(ὰρ) θησαυρὸς πέλει
ἀνεξάντλητο(ς) δι' ὅλου· |
ὅσα γάρ τ(ις) τῶν χρημάτ(ων)
κτήσητ(αι) ἐν τῶ νῦν κόσμω, |
φθείροντ(αι) κ(αὶ) ἀλλοιοῦντ(αι)
ἐν μιᾶ ῥοπῆ τὰ πάντα. |
αὕτη δὲ ἡ βίβλ(ος) πέλει,
ἄφθαρτ(ον) τ(ὸν) πλοῦτ(ον) ἔχων |
(καὶ) ψυχὴ (καὶ) σώματί σου,
εἰς αἰῶν(ας) τῶν αἰώνων+
