Occurrence 21744
(formerly occ/5599)

τὴν βίβλον εἴ τις τῆνδε τοῦ χρυσοστόμου:
καὶ χρυσολαμποῦς καὶ διαυγοῦς ποιμένος:
πιστῶς διέλθοι καὶ φιλευσεβῶς ἅμα:
εἰς νοῦν βαθύνει τῶν σοφῶν συνταγμάτων:
καὶ πρὸς λόγων ἄβυσσον ἢ νοημάτων:
τὴν γλῶτταν ὡς ἄγκιστρον ἐγκαθελκύσει:
θησαυρὸν εὕροι μὴ ῥέοντα τῶ χρόνω:
τὸν μαργαρίτην ἔνδοθεν κεκτημένον:
ψυχὰς πενιχρὰς τὸν τελοῦντα πλουσίως:
τὴν γνῶσιν αὐγάζοντα τὴν ὑπὲρ φύσιν:
τὴν πίστιν ἀστράπτοντα πάση τῆ κτίσει:
τὸ κάλλος ἐκλάμποντα τῶν διδαγμάτων:
τὸ κέρδος ἐκφαίνοντα τὸ ψυχοτρόφον:
