The Creed

by Andrea Elizabeth

Символ веры

Symbol Faith

Верую во единаго Бога Отца, Вседержителя,

I believe in one God Father, “Almighty”,

Творца небу и земли, видимым же всем и невидимым.

“Creator” heaven and earth, “visible” “expressing contrasting” all and invisible.

И во единаго Господа Иисуса Христа, Сына Божия,

And in one Lord Jesus Christ, Son God,

Единороднаго, Иже от Отца рожденнаго прежде всех век;

Onebegotten, One of Father born before all ages;

Света от Света, Бога истинна от Бога истинна,

Light of Light, God true of God true,

рожденна, несотворенна, единосущна Отцу, Имже вся быша.

Born, not made, one essence Father, Whom all “things were made”.

Нас ради человек и нашего ради спасения

Us for men and our for salvation

сшедшаго с небес и воплотившагося от Духа Свята и Марии Девы и вочеловечшася.

“Came down” from heaven and was”embodied” of Spirit Holy and Mary Virgin and ‘as’man.

Распятаго же за ны при Понтийстем Пилате,

“Crucified” for us under Pontius Pilate,

и страдавша, и погребенна.

and suffered, and was buried.

И воскресшаго в третий день по Писанием.

And rose up on third day according to Scriptures.

И возшедшаго на небеса, и седяща одесную Отца.

And ascended to heaven, and sits “right hand” Father.

И паки грядущаго со славою судити живым и мертвым,

And again will “graduate” with glory judge living and dead,

Егоже Царствию не будет конца.

Whose Kingdom not will be ended.

И в Духа Святаго, Господа, Животворящаго,

And in Spirit Holy, Lord, Lifegiver,

Иже от Отца исходящего, Иже со Отцем и Сыном спокланяема и сславима,

From the Father “outgoing”, Who with Father and Son worshiped and glorified,

глаголавшаго пророки.

Spoke forth by prophets.

Во едину Святую, Соборную и Апостольскую Церковь.

In one Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church.

Исповедую едино крещение во оставление грехов.

“I confess” one baptism for forgiveness sins.

Чаю воскресения мертвых, и жизни будущаго века. Аминь.

I look for resurrection dead, and life future-coming age. Amen.

 

(there are a lot of “щаго”s. There are a lot of comings.)

Псалом 50 Psalm 50

by Andrea Elizabeth

Псалом 50

Psalm 50

Помилуй мя, Боже, по велицей милости Твоей,

Have mercy on me, Oh God, “by” great mercy Thy,

и по множеству щедрот Твоих очисти беззаконие мое.

And by “plurality” compassions Thy cleanse transgressions my.

Наипаче омый мя от беззакония моего,

“Yet more” wash me from transgressions my

и от греха моего очисти мя;

And from sin my cleanse me;

яко беззаконие мое аз знаю,

For transgressions my “I know”,

и грех мой предо мною есть выну.

And sins my “before” me are “taken out”.

Тебе Единому согреших и лукавое пред Тобою сотворих,

To Thee only have I sinned and evil before Thee “created”.

(now also using St. Tikhon’s Press Slavonic/English prayer book, which seems to be more literal. I will still put in Russian order if English sentence structure is different. Also using online translators mostly till waiting for my dictionary. I realize conjugations are off. I’m mainly concerned with root words for now.)

яко да оправдишися во словесех Твоих,

That let be justified in words Thy,

и победиши внегда судити Ти.

And conquer always when judge Thou.

Се бо, в беззакониих зачат есмь,

Behold, in iniquities “shapened” was I.

и во гресех роди мя мати моя.

And in sin bore me mother my.

Се бо, истину возлюбил еси;

Behold, truth hast “loved” Thou;

безвестная и тайная премудрости Твоея явил ми еси.

“obscure” and “secret” wisdom Thy revealed to me Thou.

Окропиши мя иссопом, и очищуся;

Sprinkle me with hyssop, and I shall be cleansed.

омыеши мя, и паче снега убелюся.

Wash me, and “more so” made “white”r?

Слуху моему даси радость и веселие;

To hearing my Thou shalt give joy and gladness;

возрадуются кости смиренныя.

Rejoice bones that are humbled.

Отврати лице Твое от грех моих и вся беззакония моя очисти.

“Turn away” “the person (face?) of” Thy from sin my and all transgressions my cleanse.

Сердце чисто созижди во мне, Боже,

Heart “purely” “I(Thou?) will build” in me, O God,

и дух прав обнови во утробе моей.

and spirit right renew in “womb” my.

Не отвержи мене от лица Твоего и Духа Твоего Святаго не отыми от мене.

Not reject me from person Thy and Spirit Thy Holy not take from me.

Воздаждь ми радость спасения Твоего и Духом владычним утверди мя.

Воз “who” give”me joy salvation Thy and Spirit “episcopal” “strengthen” me.

Научу беззаконыя путем Твоим,

Teach “without law” by (ways?) Thy.

и нечестивии к Тебе обратятся.

And ungodly to Thee turn.

Избави мя от кровей, Боже, Боже спасения моего;

Deliver me from “bloods”, O God, O God salvation my;

возрадуется язык мой правде Твоей.

Rejoice (tongue?) my righteousness Thy.

Господи, устне мои отверзеши, и уста моя возвестят хвалу Твою.

Lord, lips my open, and mouth my “herald” praise Thy.

Яко аще бы восхотел еси жертвы, дал бых убо:

For (if?) “would” “willed” Thou “victim”, “I give” would (?):

всесожжения не благоволиши.

“Burnt offering” not thankful(?).

Жертва Богу дух сокрушен; сердце сокрушенно и смиренно Бог не уничижит.

“Victim” to God spirit “crushed”; heart crushed and humbled God not despise.

Ублажи, Господи, благоволением Твоим Сиона, и да созиждутся стены Иерусалимския.

Do good, O Lord, good will Thy Zion, and let be built walls Jerusalem.

Тогда благоволиши жертву правды, возношение и всесожегаемая; тогда возложат на oлтарь Твой тельцы.

“Then” Thou will be pleased victim/sacrifice of righteousness/truth, oblations and burnt offerings; Then they lay on alter Thy calves.

From bed and sleep raised me Thou, Oh Lord, “mind” my “enlighten” and heart, and lips my “open to”, that I may praise Thee, O Holy Trinity: Holy, Holy, Holy art Thou, O God, Through the Theotokos have mercy on us.

И ныне и присно и во веки веков. Аминь.

Lord, have mercy. (12 times)

Молитва ко Пресвятой Троице

Prayer to Most Holy Trinity (with help from here)

От сна востав, благодарю Тя, Святая Троице,

From sleep arisen, I “thank” Thee, O Holy Trinity,

яко многия ради Твоея благости и долготерпения не прогневался еси на мя, лениваго и грешнаго,

that “many” “for” “Thy” goodness and “longsuffering” no “wroth” Thou “on” me, idler and sinner,

ниже погубил мя еси со беззаконьми моими;

 nor destroyed me Thou with iniquities mine;

но человеколюбствовал еси обычно и в нечаянии лежащаго воздвигл мя еси,

“but” mankind love shown Thou “usual” when with not “the hope of” in despair raised me Thou hast,

во еже утреневати и славословити державу Твою.

to watch and praise “power” Thy.

И ныне просвети мои очи мысленныя, отверзи моя уста поучатися словесем Твоим,

 And now “illumine” my “eye” mind’s, open  my mouth that meditate words Thy,

и разумети заповеди Твоя, и творити волю Твою,

and “understand” commandments Thy, and do will Thy,

и пети Тя во исповедании сердечнем, и воспевати всесвятое имя Твое, Отца и Сына и Святаго Духа, ныне и присно и во веки веков. Аминь.

and hymn Thee in confession heartfelt, and sing praises name Thy, Father and Son and Holy Spirit, now and ever and unto ages of ages. Amen. (that was hard)

 

Приидите, поклонимся Цареви нашему Богу. (Поклон)

Come, worship let us King our God. (“bow”)

Приидите, поклонимся и припадем Христу, Цареви нашему Богу. (Поклон)

Приидите, поклонимся и припадем Самому Христу, Цареви и Богу нашему. (Поклон)

Come, worship let us and fall down before Himself Christ, King and God our.

St. John of Kronstadt

by Andrea Elizabeth

is an example of natural law. He was pretty self-directed in his quest to be God-directed. OrthodoxWiki has some good quotes. His autobiography is here. Sören Kierkegaard is another example.

Sparks Among the Stubble

by Andrea Elizabeth

Sparks Among the Stubble, the Liturgical CD from St. Innocent Academy is available through the mail or where I found it, on iTunes. Though St. Innocent Academy is a school for “at risk” high school boys, for some reason there is a women’s as well as a men’s choir. Mostly they sing apart, sometimes antiphonally, and sometimes together. This CD is the most sing-along-able that I have. The Slavonic, Alaskan, and American roots can all be heard in a better ratio than most Orthodox music done in America that I have been exposed to. I wont elaborate, but maybe some know what I mean by that on their own.

Here’s a sample of Eis Aghio, (One is Holy)

They also have a very nice version of “The Angel Cried”.

The Great Doxology

by Andrea Elizabeth

I assume this is also from Rachmaninov’s Vespers because it is word for word with this link (towards the bottom).

It’s nice to be able to read the Slavonic and the English side by side while listening, as is provided in the above link. I’ll have to copy them one after another though. Either way it’s hard to view the beautiful pictures at the same time. Sensory overload! It would be best to have the Doxology memorized in English and be able to understand the Slavonic and look at the pictures all at once. Maybe someday.

I may have to recategorize my blogroll

by Andrea Elizabeth

because the forest may be hiding the many lovely trees. Especially since I’m adding a couple of blogs where I’ve recently made comments.

The Well of Questions provides analysis and insight into things philosophical and theological from four very smart people. I recently tried to talk about time in What Is Past Has Passed, and duty in Supererogatory Actions.

Everyone probably already knows about Arturo Vasquez’s Reditus: A Chronicle of Aesthetic Christianity, which I’ll put in Reconciliation Conversations. I commented on his post about the movie, Luther, on the second page at present, which contains a very interesting conversation contrasting the Catholic and Protestant response.

I’ve already added Diakrisis Logismon‘s valuable Patristic resources, but will call attention to it here as well.

Oh, and I’ve also made a couple of comments concerning the painful subject of the OCA scandal on Gabriel’s Going Along, where he has two recent posts obviously enough titled.

Another Addition

by Andrea Elizabeth

James Kelley, “a student of Patristics” has a new blog, Orthodox Patristics, which is pro-Father John Romanides!
