Ephraim the Syrian

Woe is he who abides in sin and can find no time for repentance, for in that place shall he repent, mourning his sins to no avail unto the ages.

Woe is he who says: now shall I enjoy the flesh and I will repent in old age - for suddenly death will capture him like a snare and his hope will perish.

Woe is he who knowingly chooses to sin with the intention to repent when morning comes, for he knows not what the coming day or the night that precedes it will bring.

Woe is he who knows what is good but lends a hand to the evil one, for on the day of his exit the wicked angels will take him.

Woe is he who by his evil deeds causes his neighbor to stumble, for in the day of judgement he will give an account for every error that he seduced others into committing with his evil ways.

Woe is he who has renounced the world yet clings to a worldly way of thinking, for the parable about the man who has put his hand to the plough yet looks back pertains to him.

Woe is he who follows the desires of the flesh and is loath to attend to his soul, for his life and his hopes will be scattered over the earth.

Woe is he who does not make haste and use all his strength to prepare himself here, that he might there be justified.


Glory to Thee Our God.
