‘Skylt er tjá, það er mildingr mælti
mána hauðrs í písl við dauða:
“Þystir mig,” kvað herra inn hæsti
hlýrna; það aldri fyrnaz.
Geira lundar galli blandað
gumna þjóðir skapara bjóða
vínið súrt, en harm í hjarta
hafða eg riett, sem edik krafði.’

 

‘I am obliged to tell what {the ruler {of the land of the moon}} [SKY/HEAVEN > = God (= Christ)] said in his Passion near death: “I thirst,” said {the highest lord of the sun and moon}; [= God (= Christ)] that can never be forgotten. {The trees of spears}, [WARRIORS] the crowds of men, offer the Creator the sour wine mixed with gall, as if he had asked for vinegar, and I had torment right in my heart.’
