Anon Líkn 26VII/2 — ótti ‘fear’

Enn mun kross dýrð kynnaz
— kemr ótti þá — dróttins
fyr hnigstöfum hjörva
hljóms at efsta dómi.
Meiðr skal hverr ór hauðri
hringmóts til alþingis
fremðarráðs á fæðis
fund hvatliga skunda.

Dýrð dróttins kross mun enn kynnaz fyr hnigstöfum hljóms hjörva at efsta dómi; ótti kemr þá. Hverr meiðr hringmóts skal skunda hvatliga ór hauðri til alþingis á fund fæðis fremðarráðs.

The glory of the Lord’s Cross will yet be made known to bowing staves of swords’ din [BATTLE > WARRIORS] at the Last Judgement; fear will come then. Each tree of the sword-meeting [BATTLE > WARRIOR] shall hasten quickly from out of the ground to the Althing to meet the nourisher of propitious counsel [= God (= Christ)].
