Anon Pét 15VII/4 — bræðr ‘brothers’

Giekk, sá er glæpum stökkvir,
guð sjálfr um þær hálfur
Gálílée sjó sæla
svinnur bræðr að finna.
Hvellr nam Kristr að kalla:
‘Komið til vár af báru!
Þið skuluð menn í minni
miskunn heðan af fiskja.’

Svinnur guð sjálfr, sá er stökkvir glæpum, giekk um þær hálfur, Gálílée sjó, að finna sæla bræðr. Hvellr Kristr nam að kalla: ‘Komið til vár af báru! Heðan af í minni miskunn skuluð þið fiskja menn.’

Wise God himself, he who drives away sins, went through those parts, the sea of Galilee, to meet the blessed brothers. Christ proceeded to call with ringing voice: ‘Come to us [me] from the wave! Henceforward by my grace you two shall fish for men.’
