Anon Lil 66VII/8 — þína ‘your’

Þú fyrirdæmdir auma Évam,
Éva mann fyrir epli bannað,
maðr bannsettr um allar ættir,
ættin Krist, er spjóti nisti.
Kristr þig þó, er fant í fystu
fystan prett og manndráp settir;
svá ódygðar brandrinn bjúgi
beygiz aftr í þína kjafta.

Þú fyrirdæmdir auma Évam, Éva mann fyrir bannað epli, maðr bannsettr um allar ættir, ættin Krist, er nisti spjóti. Kristr þig þó, er í fystu fant fystan prett og settir manndráp; svá beygiz bjúgi brandrinn ódygðar aftr í kjafta þína.

You doomed to death wretched Eve, Eve [doomed] the man with the forbidden apple, man was cursed through all his descendants, his descendants [doomed] Christ, whom they pierced with a spear. Christ nevertheless [doomed] you, who, in the beginning, conceived the first fraud and established murder; thus the recoiling sword of faithlessness is turned back into your mouth.
