Anon Líkn 24VII/6 — leita ‘to seek’

Lands sté gramr af grundu
guðblíðr dögum síðarr
— eykz af öllu slíku
ór hjálp — tugum fjórum.
Fróns skal sikling* sínu
sveit, hin er Krists vill leita,
tjalds í tígnarveldi
trúa mann ok guð sannan.

Guðblíðr gramr lands sté af grundu fjórum tugum dögum síðarr; ór hjálp eykz af öllu slíku. Sveit, hin er vill leita Krists, skal trúa sikling* fróns tjalds sannan mann ok guð í sínu tígnarveldi.

The godly-tender king of the earth [= God (= Christ)] ascended from the ground forty days later; our salvation is increased by all such [acts]. The company that wishes to seek Christ must believe the king of the earth’s tent [SKY/HEAVEN > = God (= Christ)] [to be] true man and [true] God in his glorious power.
