Enn mun koma í öðru sinni
allsvaldandi kóngr gjalda
seggja ferðum sínar gerðir
sómaörr á efsta dómi.
Svá geisar þá eldr og eisa
jörð og fjöll, í heimi öllum
eigi finz hier upp ór skýjum
óbrunnið og niðr grunnum.

 

Again the all-ruling king will come, generous with honour, a second time, at the Last Judgement, to repay crowds of men for their deeds. Then fire and flames will so rage over earth and mountains, that in all the world there is nothing unburned there up above the clouds and down on the ground.

notes: Cf. Has 31. — [5-8]: An allusion to 2 Pet. III.12, which describes Dei diei per quam caeli ardentes solventur et elementa ignis ardore tabescent ‘[the coming] of the day of the Lord, by which the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with the burning heat of fire’. Cf. the liturgical sequence Dies irae: Dies irae, dies illa / solvet saeclum in favilla ‘On the day of wrath, that day will the whole world be reduced to embers’ (AH 54, 269).
