Anon Vitn 20VII/6 — orð ‘word’

Tók Máría mjúkust
mæla vörrum sælum
orð, svá að allir heyrðu
áhlýðandi lýðir:
‘Riett hermir þú hattar
hvert orð, vita skorða;
ósannindum undan
jungkærinn vill færaz.’

Mjúkust Máría tók mæla orð sælum vörrum, svá að allir áhlýðandi lýðir heyrðu: ‘Þú hermir hvert orð riett, skorða vita hattar; jungkærinn vill færaz undan ósannindum.’

Gentlest Mary began to speak words with blessed lips, so that all listening people heard: ‘You repeat each word correctly, prop of the beacon of the hat [GOLD > WOMAN]; the young man wants to escape by means of untruths.’
