Einglar kómu þeim
ofan með guðs lof:
‘Láti þier,’ kvað ljúf sveit,
‘liggja þann, er frið þiggr.
Enn, ef þier hatið hann,
hefndin verðr af guði efnd;
Máría kallar mann sier;
muni þier, kemr hun.’

 

Angels came at them from above with the leave of God: ‘Let that one lie,’ said the lovely company, ‘who will obtain peace. But, if you persecute him, vengeance will be effected by God; Mary claims the man for herself; remember that she will come’.
