Útan bækr hefir ítra
öll ritninga vitni;
kann því mætr í máta
megnstærir fólk læra.
Breyzku holdi og hetskum
heims stríðandi fjanda
mettaz saðning sætri,
sanndyggr, heilags anda.

 

He knows by heart [lit. without books] all the testimonies of glorious scriptures; therefore {the excellent increaser of strength} [APOSTLE] can instruct people properly. The truly worthy fighter against the frail flesh and {the malignant enemy of the world} [= Devil] is sated with the sweet feast of the Holy Spirit.
