Kippa þeir um klerk upp
kyndugir höfuðsynd:
‘Siða drýgði sviftuðr
sómalausan hórdóm.
Síðast, áðr líf* leið,
líkti hann gjöra slíkt;
fyrir þetta sakasár
sálin verðr hafa bál.’

 

Crafty, they pull up a cardinal sin of the cleric: ‘{The remover of morals} [NEGLIGENT PRIEST] engaged in honourless whoredom. At the very last, before life ended, it pleased him to do such a thing; because of this guilt-wound the soul must suffer the fire.’
