Anon Pét 12VII/8 — víf ‘woman’

Skriptúra skýrt váttar,
skær Perpétúa væri
kván í Kristi greinum
kunn, sú Pétro unni.
Petronillam nýtum
námgreini gaf eina
dóttur guðs og gætti
gott víf að eilífu.

Skriptúra váttar skýrt, skær Perpétúa væri kván kunn í Kristi greinum, sú unni Pétro. Gott víf gaf nýtum námgreini eina dóttur, Petronillam, og gætti guðs að eilífu.

Scripture clearly testifies [that] pure Perpetua was a woman skilled in Christ’s teachings, who loved Peter. The good woman gave to the excellent teacher a daughter, Petronilla, and directed her thoughts to God perpetually.
