Κινῶν ὁ Δαυὶδ ἐμμελῶς τὴν κινύραν
τὸ τὸν Σαοὺλ ἔφευγε πνεῦμα συστρέφον·
ᾄδοντες ἡμεῖς ψαλμικωτάτους λόγους
ἐχθρῶν νοητῶν συμπατοῦμεν τὰς κάρας.
Καὶ τῷ τάδε γράψαντι τῶν ὀφλημάτων
λύσιν παράσχου, δημιουργὲ τῶν ὅλων.

But David, stirring melodiously his lyre, escaped the demon torturing Saul. We, singing the lofty phrases of the Psalms, trample the heads of the enemies within our minds.
