Anon Pl 26VII/6 — n ‘I’

Ok þás heiptar hnekkir
harmtvistr sona missti,

dælt gerði sér — mæ*lti:
‘Éls, halt við mik máli
(ns freistat nú) þínu,
frægr valderir foldar
(framar en Jóbs ins gamla).

Ok þás harmtvistr hnekkir heiptar missti sona, mæ*lti vôttr dýrðar — gerði sér dælt við dróttin —: ‘Halt við mik máli þínu, frægr valderir foldar éls; nús n freistat framar en ins gamla Jóbs.
