Énéas lofi launar
lasta brjót á móti
reistr af kör og Kristum
kátr trúliga játar.
Gladdiz lýðr í Lidda
leystr af villu geystri;
Pétro virðing veitir
víð borg þessi síðan.

Énéas, reistr af kör, launar {brjót lasta} lofi á móti og játar kátr trúliga Kristum. Lýðr í Lidda, leystr af geystri villu, gladdiz; víð borg þessi veitir virðing Pétro síðan.

Eneas, raised from his sickbed, pays {the breaker of sins} [APOSTLE] with praise in return, and, joyful, faithfully acknowledges Christ. The people in Lydda, freed from headlong error, rejoiced; this spacious city pays honour to Peter thereafter.
