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.

 

Herod, hungry for treacheries, eager, ordered with severity that {the walker of the steep wave} [(lit. ‘steep-walker of the wave’) = Peter] be confined in a prison. The completely revered good pastor previously with his hand gathered together God’s sheep to heaven from the death of the soul.
