Tunglbryggju gaf tyggi
tíu orð laga forðum
— fríðr af fǫstu mœðisk —
fjǫlhress goðs vin Móises,
ok þrekprúðum þjóðar
þann veg yfirmanni
várr dróttinn lét veittan
víðkunnan dag sunnu.

{Fjǫlhress tyggi {tunglbryggju}} gaf forðum Móises, goðs vin, tíu orð laga — fríðr mœðisk af fǫstu —, ok dróttinn várr lét veittan {þrekprúðum yfirmanni þjóðar} þann víðkunnan veg sunnu dag.

{The very hearty king {of the moon-pier}} [SKY/HEAVEN > = God] once gave Moses, God’s friend, ten words of law — the handsome one grows weary from fasting —, and our Lord let {the strength-magnificent overseer of the people} [RULER = Moses] be granted that widely-known honour on a Sunday.
