Εἶπεν ὁ Κύριος τοῖς ἑαὐτοῦ Μαθηταῖς· Προσέχετε ἀπὸ τῶν ἀνθρώπων· ἐπιβαλοῦσιν γὰρ ἐφ' ὑμᾶς τὰς χεῖρας αὐτῶν καὶ διώξουσι, παραδιδόντες εἰς συναγωγὰς καὶ φυλακάς, ἀγομένους ἐπὶ βασιλεῖς καὶ ἡγεμόνας ἕνεκεν τοῦ ὀνόματός μου· ἀποβήσεται δὲ ὑμῖν εἰς μαρτύριον. θέτε οὖν εἰς τὰς καρδίαις ὑμῶν μὴ προμελετᾶν ἀπολογηθῆναι· ἐγὼ γὰρ δώσω ὑμῖν στόμα καὶ σοφίαν, ᾗ οὐ δυνήσονται ἀντειπεῖν οὐδὲ ἀντιστῆναι πάντες οἱ ἀντικείμενοι ὑμῖν. παραδοθήσεσθε δὲ καὶ ὑπὸ γονέων καὶ συγγενῶν καὶ φίλων καὶ ἀδελφῶν, καὶ θανατώσουσιν ἐξ ὑμῶν, καὶ ἔσεσθε μισούμενοι ὑπὸ πάντων διὰ τὸ ὄνομά μου· καὶ θρὶξ ἐκ τῆς κεφαλῆς ὑμῶν οὐ μὴ ἀπόληται· ἐν τῇ ὑπομονῇ ὑμῶν κτήσασθε τὰς ψυχὰς ὑμῶν.

The Lord said to his disciples, "Beware of men who will lay their hands on you and persecute you, delivering you up to the synagogues and prisons, and you will be brought before kings and governors for my name's sake. This will be a time for you to bear testimony. Settle it therefore in your minds, not to meditate beforehand how to answer; for I will give you a mouth and wisdom, which none of your adversaries will be able to withstand or contradict. You will be delivered up even by parents and brothers and kinsmen and friends, and some of you they will put to death; you will be hated by all for my name's sake. But not a hair of your head will perish. By your endurance you will gain your lives." [RSV]

Ἐλέησόν με, ὁ Θεός, κατὰ τὸ μέγα ἔλεός σου, καὶ κατὰ τὸ πλῆθος τῶν οἰκτιρμῶν σου ἐξάλειψον τὸ ἀνόμημά μου. Ἐπὶ πλεῖον πλῦνόν με ἀπὸ τῆς ἀνομίας μου, καὶ απὸ τῆς ἁμαρτίας μου καθάρισόν με. Ὅτι τὴν ἀνομίαν μου ἐγὼ γινώσκω, καὶ ἡ ἁμαρτία μου ἐνώπιόν μού ἐστι διὰ παντός. Σοὶ μόνῳ ἥμαρτον καὶ τὸ πονηρὸν ἐνώπιόν σου ἐποίησα, ὅπως ἂν δικαιωθῇς ἐν τοῖς λόγοις σου, καὶ νικήσῃς ἐν τῷ κρίνεσθαί σε. Ἰδοὺ γὰρ ἐν ἀνομίαις συνελήφθην, καὶ ἐν ἁμαρτίαις ἐκίσσησέ με ἡ μήτηρ μου. Ἰδοὺ γὰρ ἀλήθειαν ἠγάπησας, τὰ ἄδηλα καὶ τὰ κρύφια τῆς σοφίας σου ἐδήλωσάς μοι. Ραντιεῖς με ὑσσώπῳ, καὶ καθαρισθήσομαι, πλυνεῖς με, καὶ ὑπὲρ χιόνα λευκανθήσομαι. Ἀκουτιεῖς μοι ἀγαλλίασιν καὶ εὐφροσύνην· ἀγαλλιάσονται ὀστέα τεταπεινωμένα. Ἀπόστρεψον τὸ πρόσωπόν σου ἀπὸ τῶν ἁμαρτιῶν μου καὶ πάσας τὰς ἀνομίας μου ἐξάλειψον. Καρδίαν καθαρὰν κτίσον ἐν ἐμοί, ὁ Θεός, καὶ πνεῦμα εὐθὲς ἐγκαίνισον ἐν τοῖς ἐγκάτοις μου. Μὴ ἀποῤῥίψῃς με ἀπὸ τοῦ προσώπου σου καὶ το Πνεῦμά σου τὸ ἅγιον μὴ ἀντανέλῃς ἀπ' ἐμοῦ. Ἀπόδος μοι τὴν ἀγαλλίασιν τοῦ σωτηρίου σου καὶ πνεύματι ἡγεμονικῷ στήριξόν με. Διδάξω ἀνόμους τὰς ὁδούς σου, καὶ ἀσεβεῖς ἐπὶ σὲ ἐπιστρέψουσι. Ρῦσαί με ἐξ αἱμάτων, ὁ Θεός, ὁ Θεὸς τῆς σωτηρίας μου· ἀγαλλιάσεται ἡ γλῶσσά μου τὴν δικαιοσύνην σου. Κύριε, τὰ χείλη μου ἀνοίξεις, καὶ τὸ στόμα μου ἀναγγελεῖ τὴν αἴνεσίν σου. Ὅτι εἰ ἠθέλησας θυσίαν, ἔδωκα ἄν· ὁλοκαυτώματα οὐκ εὐδοκήσεις. Θυσία τῷ Θεῷ πνεῦμα συντετριμμένον, καρδίαν συντετριμμένην καὶ τεταπεινωμένην ὁ Θεὸς οὐκ ἐξουδενώσει. Ἀγάθυνον, Κύριε, ἐν τῇ εὐδοκίᾳ σου τὴν Σιών, καὶ οἰκοδομηθήτω τὰ τείχη Ἱερουσαλήμ. Τότε εὐδοκήσεις θυσίαν δικαιοσύνης, ἀναφορὰν καὶ ὁλοκαυτώματα. Τότε ἀνοίσουσιν ἐπὶ τὸ θυσιαστήριόν σου μόσχους.

Have mercy on me, O God, according to Your great mercy; and according to the abundance of Your compassion, blot out my transgression. Wash me thoroughly from my lawlessness and cleanse me from my sin. For I know my lawlessness, and my sin is always before me. Against You only have I sinned and done evil in Your sight; that You may be justified in Your words, and overcome when You are judged. For behold, I was conceived in transgressions, and in sins my mother bore me. Behold, You love truth; You showed me the unknown and secret things of Your wisdom. You shall sprinkle me with hyssop, and I will be cleansed; You shall wash me, and I will be made whiter than snow. You shall make me hear joy and gladness; my bones that were humbled shall greatly rejoice. Turn Your face from my sins, and blot out all my transgressions. Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me. Do not cast me away from Your presence, and do not take Your Holy Spirit from me. Restore to me the joy of Your salvation, and uphold me with Your guiding Spirit. I will teach transgressors Your ways, and the ungodly shall turn back to You. Deliver me from bloodguiltiness, O God, the God of my salvation, and my tongue shall greatly rejoice in Your righteousness. O Lord, You shall open my lips, and my mouth will declare Your praise. For if You desired sacrifice, I would give it; You will not be pleased with whole burnt offerings. A sacrifice to God is a broken spirit, a broken and humbled heart God will not despise. Do good, O Lord, in Your good pleasure to Zion, and let the walls of Jerusalem be built; then You will be pleased with a sacrifice of righteousness, with offerings and whole burnt offerings; then shall they offer young bulls on Your altar.

To the supermundane tabernacles, Christ God took your spirit blameless, O wise Martyr Demetrios. For you became a champion of the Trinity, courageously competing in the stadium like a mighty man of steel. By a lance you were pierced in your immaculate side, O all-venerable one; and thereby imitating the Lord who was stretched upon a cross for the salvation of the entire world, you received the power of performing miracles, and thus abundantly provide healings to people. Therefore as we celebrate your repose today, we worthily glorify the Lord who glorified you. [SD]

Come now to us, O Martyr of Christ, * as we entreat you to regard us with sympathy. * Deliver us who are sorely distressed by tyrannous threats * and the awful fury of the heretics, * by whom we were stripped of all, and as captives are now pursued, * changing from one place to another continually, * ever wandering over mountains and in the caves. * Holy one, praised throughout the world, take pity and give us rest. * End the distress, and extinguish the tyrant's anger regarding us, * by fervent entreaties * unto God who ever grants His great mercy to the world. [SD]

Αἰνεῖτε αὐτὸν ἐν ἤχῳ σάλπιγγος, αἰνεῖτε αὐτὸν ἐν ψαλτηρίῳ καὶ κιθάρᾳ.

Praise Him with the sound of trumpet; praise Him with the harp and lyre. [SAAS]

Αἰνεῖτε αὐτὸν ἐν τυμπάνῳ καὶ χορῷ, αἰνεῖτε αὐτὸν ἐν χορδαῖς καὶ ὀργάνῳ.

Praise Him with timbrel and dance; praise Him with strings and flute. [SAAS]

Τεῖχος ὠχυρωμένον ἡμῖν, τὰς ἑλεπόλεις τῶν ἐχθρῶν μὴ πτοούμενον, ἐδόθης τὰς τῶν βαρβάρων, ἐπιδρομὰς καταργῶν, καὶ πασῶν τῶν νόσων τὰ συμπτώματα· κρηπὶς ἀκατάβλητος, καὶ θεμέλιος ἄῤῥηκτος, καὶ πολιοῦχος, οἰκιστὴς καὶ ὑπέρμαχος, ἐχρημάτισας, τῇ σῇ πόλει Δημήτριε· ἣν καὶ νῦν παμμακάριστε, δεινῶς κινδυνεύουσαν, καὶ τρυχομένην ἀθλίως, ταῖς σαῖς πρεσβείαις διάσωσον, Χριστὸν ἱκετεύων, τὸν παρέχοντα τῷ κόσμῳ τὸ μέγα ἔλεος.

Martyr, you are for us like a wall * that is undaunted by the enemy's batt'ring rams. * For you bring to naught the inroads of the barbarian hordes. * You suppress the symptoms of all sicknesses. * A footing immovable, a foundation unshakable, * founder and patron of your City have you become, * O Demetrios, and her champion and guardian. * Therefore, as she is currently in grave danger, holy one, * and she is sorely exhausted, ever preserve her, all-blessed one, * through your intercessions, * supplicating Christ who grants His great mercy to the world. [SD]

Αἰνεῖτε αὐτὸν ἐν κυμβάλοις εὐήχοις, αἰνεῖτε αὐτὸν ἐν κυμβάλοις ἀλαλαγμοῦ. Πᾶσα πνοὴ αἰνεσάτω τὸν Κύριον.

Praise Him with resounding cymbals; praise Him with triumphant cymbals; let everything that breathes praise the Lord. [SAAS]

Πᾶσαν τὴν ἀρετὴν συλλαβών, τῶν Ἀθλοφόρων ὁ χορὸς ἀναδείκνυται, ἐντεῦθεν τῆς ἀκηράτου, καὶ μακαρίας ζωῆς, τὴν τρυφὴν ἀξίως ἐκληρώσαντο· ἐν οἷς ἀξιάγαστε, διαπρέπων Δημήτριε, καὶ τῇ μιμήσει, τοῦ Χριστοῦ σεμνυνόμενος, καὶ καυχώμενος, τῇ τῆς λόγχης ἰσότητι, αἴτησαι ἐκτενέστερον, ἡμᾶς τοὺς τιμῶντάς σε, τῶν παθημάτων ῥυσθῆναι, καὶ χαλεπῶν περιστάσεων, θερμῶς ἱκετεύων, τὸν περέχοντα τῷ κόσμῳ τὸ μέγα ἔλεος.

Clearly the hosts of Martyrs indeed * have concentrated every virtue within themselves. * And henceforth they have deservedly obtained the holy delight * of the uncorrupted blessed life in God. * And you, O Demetrios, are among them preeminent. * You are admired for your likeness to Christ himself; * you can rightly boast of identity through the spear. * Therefore persistently entreat that we who now honor you * be from calamities rescued and from disasters of any kind, * through your supplications * unto God who ever grants His great mercy to the world. [SD]

Let us honor the man who by lances inherited the grace from the Savior's side that was pierced by the lance, and from which the Savior pours out for us streams of life and incorruption; Demetrios, who was most wise in his teachings, and with the Martyrs wears a wreath of victory. He finished the course of his contest through blood, and through miracles he became illustrious throughout the world. He was zealous for the Master, and a compassionate lover of the poor; many a time the defender of the people of Thessalonika in many a dread danger. As we celebrate his yearly memorial, we glorify Christ God, who through him works healings for all. [SD]
