Anon Leið 6VII/6 — af ‘from’

Tekk til orðs, þars urðu
alfregnar jartegnir
— tôkn eru sýnd í slíku
sǫnn — Jórsalamǫnnum.
Sendi salvǫrðr grundar
snillifimr af himni
borgar lýð til bjargar
bréf gollstǫfum sollit.

Tekk til orðs, þars alfregnar jartegnir urðu Jórsalamǫnnum; sǫnn tôkn eru sýnd í slíku. Snillifimr grundar salvǫrðr sendi bréf af himni, sollit gollstǫfum, til bjargar lýð borgar.

I begin to speak at the point when renowned miracles befell the people of Jerusalem; true tokens are shown in such [a thing]. The prowess-nimble warden of the hall of the earth [(lit. ‘earth’s hall-warden’) SKY/HEAVEN > = God] sent a letter from heaven, embellished [lit. swollen] with golden letters, as a help for the townspeople.
