The Nine Odes are as follows:
*Ode One &mdash; #The (First) Song of [[Moses]] ([[Exodus ]] 15:1-19)*Ode Two &mdash; #The (Second) Song of Moses ([[Deuteronomy ]] 32:1-43)<ref>Canticle Two is normally only said on Tuesdays of Great Lent.</ref>*Ode Three &mdash; #The Prayer of [[Hannah]] (1st [[I Kingdoms|1 Samuel ]] 2:1-10)*Ode Four &mdash; #The Prayer of [[Habakkuk]] ([[Book of Habakkuk|Habakkuk ]] 3:1-19)*Ode Five &mdash; #The Prayer of [[Isaiah]] ([[Book of Isaiah |Isaiah]] 26:9-20)*Ode Six &mdash; #The Prayer of [[Jonah]] ([[Book of Jonah |Jonah]] 2:2-9)*Ode Seven &mdash; #The Prayer of the [[Three Holy Children]] ([[Book of Daniel |Daniel]] 3:26-56])<ref>In many Protestant versions of the Bible, this is found separately in the [[Deuterocanonical Books|Apocrypha]].</ref>*Ode Eight &mdash; #The Song of the Three Holy Children (Daniel 3:57-88)<ref>Ibid.</ref>*Canticle Nine &mdash; #The Song of the [[Theotokos]] (the ''[[Magnificat]]'': {, [[Gospel of Luke|Luke ]] 1:46-55)); the Song of [[Zacharias]] (the ''[[Canticle of Zachary|Benedictus]]'' {, Luke 1:68-79))
Originally, these odes were chanted in their entirety every day, with a short refrain inserted between each verse. Eventually, short verses ([[troparion|troparia]]) were composed to replace these refrains, a process traditionally inaugurated by Saint [[Andrew of Crete]].<ref>Ware, Kallistos, ''The Festal Menaion'' (Faber and Faber, London, 1969), p. 546.</ref> Gradually over the centuries, the verses of the Biblical Canticles were omitted (except for the ''Magnificat''), and only the composed troparia were read, linked to the original canticles by an [[irmos]]. During [[Great Lent]], however, the original Biblical Canticles are still read.
