Anon Mv I 2VII/1 — inn

Ástvin guðs inn æsti,
Andréas, bið eg, að standi,
nefndr, með nógleiks orðum
nafn þitt hjá mier jafnan,
svá að sælli meyju,
sætt hreinlífið, mætti
inna jartegn sanna
áhlýðandi lýðum.

Inn æsti ástvin guðs, nefndr Andréas, eg bið að nafn þitt standi jafnan hjá mier með orðum nógleiks, svá að, sætt hreinlífið, mætti inna lýðum sanna jartegn sælli meyju áhlýðandi.

Noblest bosom-friend of God, named Andrew, I ask that your name always stand by me with words of abundance, so that, sweet virtuousness, I could tell people about a true miracle while the blessed Virgin is listening.

grammar

Pronouns and determiners: Definite article

The definite article is normally suffixed to nouns, except in some cases where it is used with an adjective. If the noun form ends in a vowel, the 'i' in the article is dropped. If the noun form ends in 'um', the 'm' and 'i' are both dropped. E.g. hesta (acc. pl.) > hestana (acc. pl. definite); hestum (dat. pl.) > hestunum (dat. pl. definite)
