Anon Líkn 28VII/1 — frá ‘from’

Heim laðar hvern frá dómi
himins fyrða til dýrðar
— gipt þrýtrat þá — gætir
glyggranns með sér dyggra;
en veglausum vísar
vándum lýð til fjánda
birtiranns at brenna
byrjar valdr of aldir.

Gætir glyggranns laðar hvern dyggra fyrða heim með sér frá dómi til himins dýrðar; gipt þrýtrat þá; en valdr birtiranns byrjar vísar veglausum vándum lýð til fjánda at brenna of aldir.

The guardian of the storm-house [SKY/HEAVEN > = God (= Christ)] invites each of the faithful men home with him from the Judgement to heaven’s glory; grace will not fail then; but the ruler of the radiant house of the wind [SKY/HEAVEN > = God (= Christ)] consigns the inglorious, wicked host to devils to burn forever.


[1] frá: so 399a‑bˣ, ‘[...]a’ B


[1] laðar hvern ... heim frá dómi ‘invites each ... home from the Judgement’: Cf. Leið 45/5 and Lil 68/8.
