Giekk að nóni nökkur,
nær miskunnar tærir
mustari; mann sá næsta*
meiddan; fjár sier beiddi.
‘Penning ág til aungvan,
auðsýtir, þier býta;
vertu heill’, kvað hittir
heiðrs jafn, ‘í guðs nafni’.

Að nóni giekk {tærir miskunnar} nökkur nær mustari; sá næsta* meiddan mann; beiddi fjár sier. ‘Ág aungvan penning til, {auðsýtir}, býta þier; vertu heill í guðs nafni’, kvað {jafn hittir heiðrs}.

At the ninth hour {the giver of mercy} [APOSTLE] walked somewhere near the temple; he saw a severely maimed man [who] asked for money for himself. ‘I have no coin, {wealth-yearner} [POOR MAN], to give you; be well in God’s name’, said {the righteous finder of glory} [APOSTLE].
