Anon Leið 15VII/8 — skepnu ‘creation’

Kristr setti frið fastan
fimr meðal láðs ok himna
— nauðr es þegnum þýðask
þann veg — goðs ok manna,
ok dáðskreyttan dróttinn
dags hallar frið lagði
— þat vas sunnudag — sinnar
snjallr meðal skepnu allrar.

Fimr Kristr setti fastan frið meðal láðs ok himna, goðs ok manna — nauðr es þegnum þýðask þann veg —, ok snjallr dróttinn dags hallar lagði dáðskreyttan frið meðal allrar skepnu sinnar; þat vas sunnudag.

Nimble Christ established firm peace between earth and heavens, God and men — it is necessary for men to receive that glory —, and the valiant lord of the day’s hall [SKY/HEAVEN > = God] laid down deed-adorned peace throughout his entire creation; that was on a Sunday.
