Gamlkan Has 3VII/8 — af ‘from’

Send þú yðvarn anda,
einskepjandi, hreinan
mér, þanns mitt of fœri
munar grand heðan, landa.
Alls megu ekki þollar
án fremja þess hônum
súða viggs, es seggjum
siðabót af því hljótisk.

Send þú mér hreinan anda yðvarn, einskepjandi landa, þanns of fœri heðan munar grand mitt. Alls ekki megu þollar viggs súða fremja þess án hônum, es siðabót hljótisk seggjum af því.

Send your pure spirit to me, sole creator of lands [= God], the one which may carry hence my sorrow of mind. Trees of the steed of planking [SHIP > SEAFARERS] can by no means achieve this without it [lit. him, viz. the Holy Spirit], because moral amendment may proceed for men from it.
