Interest that KJV says "restore such an one", makes me presume the word "one" wasn't pronounced "wun" yet back when the KJV was written. "Ain" or "ay" is still pronounced in northern Scotland.

Your presumption is correct.

Oh, I thought "tsarstvoe" and the word before it were a single large one. Why is the first letter of the word before "tsartvoe" like this and how does the word sound?

есть= "is"
A kind of calligraphy.

Whoops...

My notion of Church Slavonic is actually much below basic, but in this thread I can grasp some words from my very basic Russian and type the rest into Google.

The website that hosts this image has a transcription and a sufficient translation on its dedicated page:

"This was (he) who was before me. Behold the lamb of God who takes away the sins of the whole world. Repent for the kingdom of God has drawn near. For already the axe lies at the root of the tree."
"Take heed, you who listen to me: Our misfortune is inevitable, we cannot escape it. If God allows scandals, it is that the elect shall be revealed. Let them be burned, let them be purified, let them who have been tried be made manifest among you."   - The Life of the Archpriest Avvakum by Himself

So this is Jose Maria Escriva, founder of Opus Dei.  The painting itself is pretty well done. What's the scroll say?

It's Russian. "God calls all for holiness. Any work can be converted into an instrument for personal santification and of others." Sounds like something he would have said.
"May the Lord our God remember in His kingdom all Holy Catholic Apostolic Church, which heralds the Word of Truth and fearlessly offers and distributes the Holy Oblation despite human deficiencies and persecutions moved by the powers of this world, in all time and unto the ages of ages."

I believe the first part says "St. Alexius, Metropolitan of Moscow, Wonderworker", but the "wonderworker" part is just guessing because I can only read "miracle", not "worker". The second part says "St. Alexius, man of God".

Lol, I wrote it in reply 117.
There is an abbreviation "chud" so it has to be "wonderworker", as for "miracle" the abbreviation is rather not used.

I’ve seen mention of the “honorable chains” or “precious chains” of St. Peter. Google translate gives me “time chains” of St. Peter. What is the better translation for these chains?

Honorable. There is for example "chesny krest" so it means "honorable Cross".
Google translate probable takes only the fisrt part of the word: "chas" and it means "time".

Happy shall he be, that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock. Alleluia.

Yeah, you're right. And "wonderworker". An I see on the paper he has "...and became inhabitant of desert and I waited for God that is saving me from..."

Only hint: border icon on larger icon of Theotokos the Healer.
