Τοὺς τρεῖς μαθητὰς προσλαβὼν ὁ δεσπότης
ὄρους ἀνῆλθεν εἰς βάσεις Θαβωρίου
δεῖξαι θελήσας τὴν ἄφραστον οὐσίαν,
ὡς ἦν ἐφικτὸν τοῖς φοροῦσι σαρκίον.
ἄγει σὺν αὐτοῖς καὶ νόμου τοὺς προκρίτους
ἐκ τῶν νεκάδων, ἐκ πυλῶν οὐρανίων.
εἶτ’ ἀγλαὸν φῶς ἀστραποβόλον μέγα
ἤστραψε τὸ πρόσωπον ἡλίου πλέον,
χιτῶνες ἐξέλαμπον αἴγλην φωσφόρον·
νεκροὶ μαθηταὶ τῆς ξένης θεωρίας.
