‘Þegnar gjörðu þraungva og harða
þyrnis korónu stilli hlýrna;
buðu honum þá með blygð og háði
bannaðir Júðar slíkt og annað.
Hjarta mitt, er eg horfða á þetta,
hræraz tók, því son minn kæri
dýrligr virði miklu meira
mína eymd en píslir sínar.’

 

Men made a tight and hard crown of thorns {for the prince of the sun and moon}; [= God (= Christ)] the cursed Jews offered him that and other such things with shame and scorn. My heart began to tremble as I looked at this, because my dear son, the precious one, heeded my anguish much more than his own torments.’

notes: [5-8]: Cf. Mar (1871, 1006): sa ek til hans ok hann til min, ok sa ek, at hann hafdi meiri sorg af minum grꜳt enn sinni pining ‘I looked at him and he at me, and I saw that he had more sorrow from my weeping than from his own torment’.
