Nú frumtígna fagnað
fest hefi eg einum lestri
þeira tólf með tíri,
að tjáðag, Pétri, áðan.
Opinn og syndum sópaðr
salr vizkunnar kunnigr
standi að stuðli greindum;
stefjabálk vil eg hefja.

Nú hefi eg fest einum lestri fagnað þeira tólf frumtígna Pétri með tíri, að tjáðag áðan. Standi {kunnigr salr vizkunnar} opinn og sópaðr syndum að greindum stuðli; eg vil hefja stefjabálk.

Now I have established in a single reading the joy of those twelve highest dignities of Peter with glory which I recounted earlier. May {the knowing hall of the intellect} [BREAST] stand open and swept of sins, the ‘prop’ having been established; I wish to begin a refrain section.
