Verses

Your unploughed earth produces fruit, O Word.
The fruit are two men, even to the loins.

Two unnamed Holy Martyrs of Christ contested for the faith in Ascalon (Ashkelon) in Palestine. They were buried in a mound of earth up to their loins and thus surrendered their souls into the hands of God.
