7. Anonymous Poems, Drápa af Máríugrát, 39 [Vol. 7, 786-7]
[All]: Cf. Mar (1871, 1011): ok af þui einu glediandizt, at ek gret fyrir ydar(rar) lausnar sakir, bidiandi ydr kristna menn, at þier gratid ok uorkynnit mier, þuiat fyrir ydarra synda sakir þoldi minn son dauda ok ek þuilikann harm ‘and I was rejoicing for that one reason, that I wept for the sake of your redemption, asking you, Christian people, that you weep and forgive me, because for the sake of your sins my son suffered death and I [suffered] such grief’. This is the last textual parallel to the prose of Mar. Skald ends Mary’s speech at l. 4 (so also Wrightson, but with reservations; see her n. to 39/5-8), whereas Skj B attributes 40/1-8 below to Mary. Because that st. has no parallel in Mar (1871, 1011-12), the attribution is unlikely.
