Anon Leið 32VII/5 — gaf ‘gave’

Vôru ǫðlings ærir
alkunnan dag sunnu
heiðar bœs í húsi
hreins luktaðir einu.
Þá gaf skjǫldungr skýja
skríns postolum sínum
— ítr firri goð gotna
grandi — helgan anda.

Ærir ǫðlings hreins bœs heiðar vôru luktaðir í einu húsi alkunnan sunnudag. Þá gaf skjǫldungr skríns skýja postolum sínum helgan anda; ítr goð firri gotna grandi.

The envoys of the prince of the pure dwelling of the heath [SKY/HEAVEN > = God (= Christ) > APOSTLES] were shut up in a certain house on a well-known Sunday. Then the king of the shrine of the clouds [HEAVEN > = God] gave his Apostles the Holy Spirit; may glorious God save men from harm.
