Εὐαγγελιστῶν τοὺς θεοπνεύστους λόγους,
τομαῖς διαιρεθέντας εὐεπηβόλοις
καὶ τῇδε βίβλῳ τεχνικῶς ἡρμοσμένους,
ἅπας ἀκούων καὶ τρυφῶν καθ' ἡμέραν,
ἑστῶσιν ὠσί, τοὺς ὑπεκφωνουμένους,
τὸν Ἀνδρέα θαύμαζε τῆς εὐβουλίας,
σπούδασμα πολλοῖς οὐ πρὶν ἐσπουδασμένον
καὶ σπουδάσαντα συντόνοις προθυμίαις
καὶ καλλιεργήσαντα χροαῖς ποικίλαις,
τοῖς μὲν ξενίζειν τοὺς ὁρῶντας ὡς ἔχοι,
τοῖς τοῦ θεοῦ δὲ ῥήμασι ψυχοτρόφοις
εὐεργετεῖν ἅπαντας ἀκροωμένους.
