Occurrence 24318
(formerly occ/8281)

Τοῦ πν(εύματο)ς τὰ θεῖα τόξα (καὶ) βέλη,
τείνας ὁ δα(υι)δ ψαλμοκινεῖτω λύρα:
ἅπασαν ὄντως πρὸ(ς) βολὴν μὲν δαιμ(ό)ν(ων):
βάλλει τιτρώσκει (καὶ) διώκει (καὶ) τρέπει:
πιστῶν δὲ πᾶσαν, πρὸ(ς) θ(εὸ)ν πτεροῖ φρέν(αν):
καὶ τῶν χαμερπῶν ἐξιστᾶ φροντίδα:
πρὸς τὴν ἐν ἔργοις ψυχικὴν σ(ωτη)ρίαν,
δαυιτικὴ πέφυκα δέλτος ἀσμάτων:
φέρουσα τῶ γράψαντι φέρτατον κλέ(ως),
θεόγραφον χάριν δὲ τῶ κεκτημ(έν)ω:
(...)αὶ μ(αν)θάνουσιν εὐκλεᾶ τὴν καρδίαν,
καὶ τοὺς βλέπουσιν ἐνθεεστάτ(ους) νό(ας):
ψάλλουσι δι' ἅσμα πν(εύματος) χορηγίαν,
δῶρον θ(εο)ῦ πέφυκεν ἀν(θρώπ)οις ξένοις:
ἡ τοῦ (μοναχ)ου ψαλμικῆ μελωδία,
μετατρέπουσα τῶν παθῶν τα θηρία:
ἡ τῶν φρενῶν δε ποικίλη κακουργία,
ταῦτη προσεγγίσασα τῆ συμφωνία:
ῥᾶον κατεπρήνηξε τ(ὴν) ἀταξίαν,
ἱστῶσα τὴν νόησιν εἰς θεωρίαν:
ὃς οῦν μετέσχε τῆσδε τῆς εὐγλωττί(ας),
ὑπὲρ βέβηκε μουσικὴν θυμηδί(αν):
