Vôru ǫðlings ærir
alkunnan dag sunnu
heiðar bœs í húsi
hreins luktaðir einu.
Þá gaf skjǫldungr skýja
skríns postolum sínum
— ítr firri goð gotna
grandi — helgan anda.

{Ærir {ǫðlings {hreins bœs heiðar}}} vôru luktaðir í einu húsi alkunnan sunnudag. Þá gaf {skjǫldungr {skríns skýja}} postolum sínum helgan anda; ítr goð firri gotna grandi.

{The envoys {of the prince {of the pure dwelling of the heath}}} [SKY/HEAVEN > = God (= Christ) > APOSTLES] were shut up in a certain house on a well-known Sunday. Then {the king {of the shrine of the clouds}} [HEAVEN > = God] gave his Apostles the Holy Spirit; may glorious God save men from harm.
