Fylgði lýðr af láði
lagavísum Móísi;
sundr sprakk vágr fyr vendi;
vas þat sunnudag unnit.
Þusti hafs með hreysti
heiðit folk á leiðir;
brátt vann lǫgr inn ljóti
líftjón Pharaóni.

Lýðr fylgði lagavísum Móísi af láði; vágr sprakk sundr fyr vendi; þat vas unnit sunnudag. Heiðit folk þusti með hreysti á leiðir hafs; brátt vann inn ljóti lǫgr Pharaóni líftjón.

The people followed law-wise Moses from the land; the sea burst apart before the staff; that was accomplished on a Sunday. The heathen people rushed with valour onto the ocean’s paths; quickly the ugly sea brought about a loss of life for Pharaoh.
