Anon Pét 51VII/6 — eingill ‘The angel’

Vekr, á síðu sækir
sannleiks Pétrum, þannveg,
lýstr, en báðir bresta
brátt sundr fjötrar, dundu.
Flytr með fagnað brautu
fljótt eingill hjálp meingis,
myrkvastofa að merkiz
morni læst in forna.

Sækir sannleiks lýstr Pétrum á síðu, vekr þannveg, en báðir fjötrar bresta brátt sundr, dundu. Eingill flytr hjálp meingis brautu fljótt með fagnað, að morni merkiz in forna myrkvastofa læst.

The seeker of truth [ANGEL] strikes Peter on the side, wakes him that way, and both fetters instantly break asunder; they clattered down. The angel conveys the help of the multitude [APOSTLE] away quickly with joy, so that in the morning the ancient prison is found locked.
