Ben Sirach 1:1-14 1:1 All wisdom is from the Lord God, and hath been always with him, and is before all time. 1:2 Who hath numbered the sand of the sea, and the drops of rain, and the days of the world? Who hath measured the height of heaven, and the breadth of the earth, and the depth of the abyss? 1:3 Who hath searched out the wisdom of God that goeth before all things? 1:4 Wisdom hath been created before all things, and the understanding of prudence from everlasting. 1:5 The word of God on high is the fountain of wisdom, and her ways are everlasting commandments. 1:6 To whom hath the root of wisdom been revealed, and who hath known her wise counsels? 1:7 To whom hath the discipline of wisdom been revealed and made manifest? and who hath understood the multiplicity of her steps? 1:8 There is one most high Creator Almighty, and a powerful king, and greatly to be feared, who sitteth upon his throne, and is the God of dominion. 1:9 He created her in the Holy Ghost, and saw her, and numbered her, and measured her. 1:10 And he poured her out upon all his works, and upon all flesh according to his gift, and hath given her to them that love him. 1:11 The fear of the Lord is honour, and glory, and gladness, and a crown of joy. 1:12 The fear of the Lord shall delight the heart, and shall give joy, and gladness, and length of days. 1:13 With him that feareth the Lord, it shall go well in the latter end, and in the day of his death he shall be blessed. 1:14 The love of God is honourable wisdom.

Troparion — Tone 8 In you the image was preserved with exactness, O Mother, / for taking up your cross, you followed after Christ. / By so doing, you taught us to disregard the flesh, for it passes away, / but to care instead for the soul, since it is immortal. / Therefore, most venerable Mother Nina your spirit rejoices with the Angels. Kontakion — Tone 2 (Podoben: “Having received the grace...“) Because of your love of God you forsook a bed for rest, O Mother Nina, / you illumined your soul with fasting, thoroughly vanquishing your enemies; / but by your intercessions destroy the evil designs our adversaries.
