Troparion - Tone 4
Having acquired the patience of your Forefather,and having resembled the Baptist in abstinence,you shared the divine zeal of bothand were counted worthy to receive their names.You were a fearless preacher of the True Faith;in this way you brought a multitude of monastics to Christ.You strengthened all people in Orthodoxy,Job, our venerable father;pray that our souls may be saved

Kontakion - Tone 4
Podoben: "Today You have shown forth..."You were a pillar of the True Faith;a zealot of the commandments of the Gospel;a denouncer of pride,and a defender and teacher of the humble.Therefore, those who honor you pray for the remission of their sins,and that this, your holy habitation, be kept safe from all harm,Job, our father, who resembled the long-suffering Patriarch of old.
