Anon Heil 17VII/8 — framm

Myrkrastofu fekk meistari klerka;
minntiz þessa nökkur kvinna;
Blásíum fann með björtu ljósi
brúðr og færði vistir prúðar.
Ýtum bað hann þeim alt gott veita
eining guðs, er minning neina
gerðu honum til gleði og dýrðar;
guð játar það framm að láta.

Meistari klerka fekk myrkrastofu; nökkur kvinna minntiz þessa; brúðr fann Blásíum með björtu ljósi og færði prúðar vistir. Hann bað eining guðs veita ýtum þeim, er gerðu honum neina minning til gleði og dýrðar, alt gott; guð játar að láta það framm.

The teacher of clerics [BISHOP] was imprisoned; a certain woman remembered him; the woman found Blaise with a bright light and brought fine food. He asked the unity of God [TRINITY] to grant those men, who gave him any commemoration with happiness and glory, everything good; God promises to effect that.


[8] framm: so 399a‑bˣ, frammi 720a VI


[8] framm: Lit. ‘forward’; Finnur Jónsson (Skj A) and Kock (Skald; NN §2891) read ‘fruinni’ (f. dat. sg.) ‘the woman’ (but Finnur Jónsson emends to framm in Skj B).
