    • from the Homily against the Bogumils, 1643-1649:
      оучѧтъ же своꙗ си не повиновати сѧ властелемъ своимъ; хоулѧще богатꙑѩ, царь ненавидѧтъ, рѫгаѭтъ сѧ старѣишинамъ, оукарꙗѭтъ болꙗрꙑ, мрьзькꙑ богоу мьнѧтъ работаѭщѧѩ цѣсарю, и вьсꙗкомоу рабоу не велѧтъ работати господиноу своѥмоу.
      učętŭ že svoja si ne povinovati sę vlastelemŭ svoimŭ; xulęšte bogatyję, carĭ nenavidętŭ, rǫgajǫtŭ sę starěišinamŭ, ukarjajǫtŭ boljary, mrĭzĭky bogu mĭnętŭ rabotajǫštęję cěsarju, i vĭsjakomu rabu ne velętŭ rabotati gospodinu svojemu.
      They teach their followers not to obey their masters; they scorn the rich, they hate the Tsars, they ridicule their superiors, they reproach the boyars, they believe that God looks in horror on those who labour for the Tsar, and advise every serf not to work for his master.
    • from Vita Methodii, 0500900:
      тъгда не съмѧста сѧ отърещи ни бога ни чѣсарѧ
      tŭgda ne sŭmęsta sę otŭrešti ni boga ni čěsarę
      Then they dared not refuse God or the Emperor
