Mektarfullr, er af bar öllum
í náttúruskærleik sínum,
skapaður góðr og skein í prýði
skapara næstr í vegsemd hæstri.
Eigi liet sier alla nægjaz
eingill mekt, þá er hafði feingið;
með ofbeldi öðlaz vildi
æðra sess og virðing bæði.

 

The one full of might, who in his natural brightness surpassed all, [was] created good and shone in glory, in highest honour next to the Creator. The angel did not let all the might, which he had received, be a source of contentment to him; with pride he wanted to win for himself both a higher seat and regard.
