Text: August 29 - Beheading of John the Baptist - Tropar, Tone 2

Tropar, Tone 2:
The remembrance of the just is worthy of praise,*
but the Lord’s testimony is sufficient for you, O Forerunner;*
for it has shown that you are indeed more worthy of honour than the prophets.*
You were found worthy to baptize the Lord whom you foretold.*
Thereafter, you suffered for the truth*
and rejoicing, also announced the good news to those in the Abyss that God has appeared as man,*
taking away the sins of the world and granting to all of us the abundance of mercy.

Text: August 29 - Beheading of John the Baptist - Glory Be & Kondak, Tone 5

Glory Be …, Tone 5:

Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit,* now and for ever and ever. Amen.

Kondak, Tone 5:
The glorious beheading of the Forerunner was part of God’s saving plan*
that the coming of the Saviour might be announced even to those in the Abyss.*
Weep, then, Herodias, that you asked for the wicked murder,*
because you loved neither God’s law nor eternal life,*
but only the passing pleasure of life.
