Anon Líkn 43VII/3 — orðum ‘words’

Þá er, sem þengill skýja
þreksnjallr kveði alla
oss með orðum þessum
ágætr fyr meinlæti:
‘Mín hefi ek sár at sýna
seggjum góð með blóði;
maðr sjái hverr á hauðri
hingat til píninga.

Þá er, sem þreksnjallr þengill skýja, ágætr fyr meinlæti, kveði oss alla með þessum orðum: ‘Ek hefi mín góð sár með blóði at sýna seggjum; hverr maðr á hauðri sjái hingat til píninga.

Then it is as if the strength-bold king of clouds [= God (= Christ)], famed on account of agonies, addresses us all with these words: ‘I have my good wounds with blood to show to men; let each man on earth look hither at [these] torments.
