Völd gaf vísi alda
víngarðs efli sínum
hæst; því hlaut í fystu
hann forræði manna.
Alt kvað laust, það er lystir
lund, á himni bundið,
manndýrða, iels jörðu
jöfurr kalligra palla.

{Vísi alda} gaf hæst völd {sínum efli víngarðs}; því hlaut hann í fystu forræði manna. {Jöfurr {iels kalligra palla}} kvað alt, það er lystir {lund manndýrða} laust, bundið á himni, jörðu.

{The prince of men} [= God (= Christ)] gave the highest powers {to his strengthener of the vineyard} [APOSTLE]; therefore he obtained for the first time authority over men. {The king {of the storm’s cold seats}} [SKY/HEAVEN > = God] said that everything which {the tree of human virtues} [HOLY MAN = Peter] wishes is loose [and] bound in heaven [and] on earth.
