Anon Lil 24VII/3 — eingli ‘an angel’

Nær og firr með skygnleik skýrum
skapandi alt með syni og anda
föðurpersónan, eingli einum
erindi býðr, en þessi hlýðir:
‘Fljúg, og seg það Máríu meyju
mætri, þeirri er eg skal gæta,
minn einkason holdi hennar
hlýðinnar vill björtu skrýðaz.’

Föðurpersónan, skapandi með syni og anda alt nær og firr með skýrum skygnleik, býðr einum eingli erindi, en þessi hlýðir: ‘Fljúg, og seg það mætri meyju Máríu, þeirri er eg skal gæta, minn einkason vill skrýðaz hennar, hlýðinnar, björtu holdi.’

The Father-person, creating with the Son and the Spirit everything near and far with clear vision, assigns an angel a mission, which he obeys: ‘Fly and say to the worthy maiden Mary, to the one whom I shall care for, [that] my only son wants to clothe himself with her, the obedient one’s, bright flesh.’
