Trúa lofar Ábráms ævi;
Ísách lofar vísan
ván; lofar Jácób* einum
ástsemd hugarfremdum.
Skýrr lofar Jóséphs ævi
órskurðr fyrirburða;
guðs lofar ætt og ævi
Áróns göfug þjónan.

Trúa lofar ævi Ábráms; ván lofar vísan Ísách; ástsemd lofar Jácób* einum hugarfremdum. Skýrr órskurðr fyrirburða lofar ævi Jóséphs; göfug þjónan guðs lofar ætt og ævi Áróns.

Faith praises Abraham’s life; hope praises wise Isaac; love praises Jacob for singular excellences of mind. A clear interpretation of omens praises the life of Joseph; the worthy service of God praises the kin and the life of Aaron.
