Anon Sól 23VII/6 — himni ‘heaven’

Lík hans þeir drógu        á leynigötu
        ok brytjuðu í brunn niðr;
dylja þeir vildu,        en dróttinn sá
        heilagr himni af.

Þeir drógu lík hans á leynigötu ok brytjuðu niðr í brunn; þeir vildu dylja, en heilagr dróttinn sá af himni.

They dragged his body along a secret path and dismembered it [putting it] down into a well; they wanted to conceal it, but the holy Lord saw it from heaven.


[6] himni: himnum papp15ˣ, 738ˣ, 167b 6ˣ, 1441ˣ, 10575ˣ, 2797ˣ


[6] himni (dat. sg.) ‘heaven’: Either 166bˣ’s reading or the dat. pl. reading of the other mss is possible.
