Bera liet vitni várum
vald himneskra spjalda,
gróðri, sá fylkir, er fáði
fjöll, af heimum öllum:
rödd guðs þóknan þýddi
þrír postular skírir
Elíás af paradísu,
Ebrón Móisi þjónar.

Sá fylkir, er fáði fjöll gróðri, liet bera vitni af öllum heimum {várum vald himneskra spjalda}: rödd guðs þýddi þóknan, þrír postular skírir, Elíás af paradísu, Ebrón þjónar Móisi.

That king, who adorned the mountains with vegetation, let witness be borne from all worlds {to our keeper of the heavenly tablets} [= God (= Christ)]: the voice of God expressed satisfaction, three pure Apostles, Elijah from Paradise, Hebron serves Moses.
