Anon Sól 73VII/2 — hreinliga ‘clean [lit. cleanly]’

Helgar meyjar        höfðu hreinliga
        sál af synðum þvegit
manna þeira,        er á mörgum degi
        pína sjálfa sik.

Helgar meyjar höfðu hreinliga þvegit af synðum sál manna þeira, er á mörgum degi pína sjálfa sik.

Holy maidens had washed clean [lit. cleanly] of sin the souls of those men who on many a day mortify themselves.


[2] hreinliga: hreinligan 214ˣ
