Anon Mey 47VII/3 — af ‘from’

Setning guðs liet sagirnar brotna;
sökt var henni í djúpið nöktri;
völdug giekk af vazins öldu
vætulaust með þurrum fæti.
Liet hann óðum ljónum beita
listugt fljóð, er klæða misti;
dýrið bítur dygðar kæru;
dróttins skínn meðal píslarvótta.

Setning guðs liet sagirnar brotna; henni var nöktri sökt í djúpið; völdug giekk vætulaust með þurrum fæti af öldu vazins. Hann liet listugt fljóð, er misti klæða, beita óðum ljónum; dýrið bítur kæru dygðar; skínn meðal píslarvótta dróttins.

The plan of God caused the saws to break; she was sunk naked into the deep [sea]; the powerful one walked without being wet [and] with dry feet from the wave of the water. He had the skilful woman, who was stripped of her clothes, set upon by raging lions; the beast bites the woman of virtue; she shines among the martyrs of the Lord.
