‘Þegnar gjörðu þraungva og harða
‘Men made a tight and hard crown of thorns for the prince of the sun and moon [= God (= Christ)]; the cursed Jews offered him that and other such things with shame and scorn. My heart began to tremble as I looked at this, because my dear son, the precious one, heeded my anguish much more than his own torments.’
[5-8]: Cf. Mar (1871, 1006): sa ek til hans ok hann til min, ok sa ek, at hann hafdi meiri sorg af minum grꜳt enn sinni pining ‘I looked at him and he at me, and I saw that he had more sorrow from my weeping than from his own torment’.
