Héródes bað báru
brattstíganda rígu
lykja flærða fíkinn
fúss í myrku húsi.
Samnaði saman til himna
sauðum guðs af dauða
andar áðr með hendi
alls virðr góður hirðir.

Héródes, fíkinn flærða, fúss, bað rígu lykja {brattstíganda báru} í myrku húsi. Alls virðr góður hirðir samnaði saman áðr með hendi guðs sauðum til himna af dauða andar.
