Anon Mv II 24VII/5 — dýrð ‘honour’

Þykkjumz eg í þinn flokk
þeygi kunna, guðs mey
skærust, sem skylt er,
skilin orð að fá til.
Verði þier valin dýrð,
vífa sæmdin, eilíf
um alla heims höll
haldin með guðs vald.

Skærust mey guðs, eg þykkjumz þeygi kunna að fá til skilin orð í flokk þinn, sem er skylt. Verði valin, eilíf dýrð haldin þier, sæmdin vífa, um alla höll heims með vald guðs.

Purest Virgin of God [= Mary], I do not consider myself at all able to procure clear words for your poem, as obliged. May choice, eternal honour be maintained for you, the glory of women [= Mary], throughout the entire hall of the world [UNIVERSE] by the power of God.
