Anon Líkn 27VII/1 — mun ‘will’

Kross mun á þingi þessu
þjóðum sýndr með blóði
— uggs fyllaz þá allir
aumir menn — ok saumi.
Líta seggja sveitir,
svipur ok spjót á móti
sér ok sjá með dreyra
sjálfs Krists viðir Mistar.

Á þessu þingi mun kross sýndr þjóðum með blóði ok saumi; allir aumir menn fyllaz þá uggs. Sveitir seggja líta ok viðir Mistar sjá á móti sér svipur ok spjót með dreyra Krists sjálfs.

At this assembly the Cross will be shown to the people [lit. pl.] with blood and nails; all wretched men will be filled then with terror. Hosts of men look, and the trees of Mist <valkyrie> [WARRIORS] see before them the whips and spear with the blood of Christ himself.
