Setning guðs liet sagirnar brotna;
The plan of God caused the saws to break; she was sunk naked into the deep [sea]; the powerful one walked without being wet [and] with dry feet from the wave of the water. He had the skilful woman, who was stripped of her clothes, set upon by raging lions; the beast bites the woman of virtue; she shines among the martyrs of the Lord.
