In the Pre-sanctified Liturgy, after 'Gladsome Light' ( or however it may be called), there are readings from Genesis and Proverbs. In none of the books I have are the actual texts of these set out but only the reference for them. I have been blessed to produce a booklet containing these readings from the Septuagint but does anyone know of such a thing already available? Incidentally, the parish in which I read and serve is Antiochian so they use the comb-bound edition of that Church's North American Diocese.

 

PS We use KJV English.

I know the Triodion translated by Metropolitan Kilostos has the texts for the first week of lent otherwise I have not come across them printed in English translation.  

 

 

Most of the singers I know have a collection of texts they have gathered themselves and a few books.

Thank you, Phoebe - as I thought. Since we should use the Septuagint, I can copy and paste from the Old Testament prepared by Michael Asser which is on the Orthodox England web site.

Andreas,

 

Do you have a copy of the Prophetologion?

I did not know about this - it looks very interesting. Thank you very much, Peter.

At our Greek Orthodox Church we have pamphlet handouts for the presanctified, complines, Akathist and so forth. Maybe this could be helpful.

Rdr Andreas,

 

A couple of years ago, I created a little "booklet" that has all those readings, along with the prokeimena.  They are formatted such that the readings are not broken across pages when printed on US letter paper (and would probably work on A4).  You are welcome to it if it would be helpful:

You are quite welcome.

 

I should point out that those aren't strictly from the Septuagint because I don't have one.  They came from the KJV.  However, if I remember correctly, I checked them against the OSB (which I understood tried to incorporate the Septuagint where there was a substantive difference) and they matched.

 

Please let me know if you find any issues.  I, too, would rather use what I know to be the original Septuagint, so if you end up creating something else and are willing and blessed to share it, I would be interested in it.

 

Have a blessed Lent!

I want to point out for anyone interested that the Prophetologion I mentioned above includes the Troparia, Prokeimena, and Readings for the Sixth Hour and Vespers/Presanctified for each day, and the whole book incorporates varying Byzantine and Slavic practices.  It is a particularly wonderful resource for those using a KJV style.  Also, for those interested in the use of the Ladder at the Hours, see the link below.  It is placed after the first Theotokion (and after the Prophecy at the Sixth Hour).
