Anon Mgr 26VII/5 — eigi ‘not’

Máttugr anzar mána stiettar
móður sinni stillir þjóðar:
‘Ítrust, skal þín, jungfrú, gæta
Jón postuli, meðan lifir á fróni.
Grát eigi þú, móðir mætust,
mína kvöl nie sára pínu;
líknarfúss mun eg leysa í þessu
lýð og heim,’ kvað eingla prýðir.

Máttugr stillir þjóðar mána stiettar anzar móður sinni: ‘Jón postuli skal gæta þín, ítrust jungfrú, meðan lifir á fróni. Mætust móðir, grát þú eigi mína kvöl nie sára pínu; líknarfúss mun eg leysa lýð og heim í þessu,’ kvað prýðir eingla.

The mighty prince of the people of the moon’s path [SKY/HEAVEN > ANGELS > = God (= Christ)] answers his mother: ‘John the Apostle shall guard you, most splendid Virgin, while you live on earth. Most glorious mother, do not weep for my pain and bitter torment; mercy-eager, I will redeem mankind and the world by this,’ said the adorner of angels [= God (= Christ)].
