Τὴν μυστικὴν σάλπιγγα, τὸν βροντῆς γόνον,
ὃς "ἦν ἐν ἀρχῇ πρὸς θεὸν λόγος" γράφων
πᾶσαν φαεινῶς φωτὶ φωτίζει φρένα,
ὁ χρυσορ<ρ>ήμων εὐφυῶς σαφηνίσας
τῶν εὐσεβῶν μὲν ἐκράτυνε τὰ στίφη,
τῶν δυσσεβῶν δὲ τὰς πλοκὰς ἀνατρέπει.

Tag(s) Spiritual value of the book
Translation(s) The mystical trumpet, the son of the thunder,
who splendidly enlightens every heart with light
by writing “in the beginning the word was with God”
is skilfully explained by the man of golden speech,
who has thus strengthened the assemblies of the pious,
and refutes the fallacies of the impious.
