Anon Pét 18VII/6 — iel ‘of the storm’

Fylgir himna helgum
hilmi fríður síðan
postuli; prýðir lista
Pétr sannliga mietraz;
Festi hann allar ástir
ielranns við kóng sannan;
varð því valdr af gjörðum
váttr guðdómsins mátta.

Síðan fylgir fríður postuli helgum hilmi himna; Pétr mietraz sannliga prýðir lista. Festi hann allar ástir við sannan kóng ielranns; því varð af gjörðum valdr váttr guðdómsins mátta.

Thereafter, the glorious Apostle follows the holy king of the heavens [= God (= Christ)]; Peter is truly deemed an adorner of virtues [HOLY MAN]. He fixed all his affections on the true king of the storm-house [SKY/HEAVEN > = God (= Christ)]; therefore he became through his deeds the chosen witness of the Godhead’s powers.
