Anon Líkn 14VII/8 — hyggja ‘imagine’

Veittu menn, sem máttu,
marga lund á grundu,
grimmúðgastir gumnar,
guði sælum harmkvæli.
Lét fyr ljóna sveitum
limu sína guð pína,
framar en flestir gumnar,
fjöldyggr, megi hyggja.

Grimmúðgastir gumnar — menn sem máttu — veittu sælum guði harmkvæli marga lund á grundu. Fjöldyggr guð lét sína limu pína fyr sveitum ljóna, framar en flestir gumnar megi hyggja.

The most grim-minded men — men who were able — gave blessed God sorrowful torments in many ways on earth. Very faithful God let his limbs be tortured for the hosts of men more than most men might imagine.
