Gamlkan Has 50VII/7 — gráti ‘weeping’

Nítti einn við ótta
ítr postoli rítar
fróns musteris festi*
forðum þýjar orða.
Enn, þegars iðran sanna
aldrprýðir fekk lýða,
Pétr vann glœp með gráti
grandlauss þvegit vandla.

Einn ítr postoli nítti forðum festi* rítar musteris fróns við ótta orða þýjar. Enn þegars aldrprýðir lýða fekk sanna iðran, vann grandlauss Pétr þvegit vandla glœp með gráti.

One glorious Apostle long ago denied the securer of the shield of the temple of the land [HEAVEN > SUN > = God (= Christ)] for fear of a bondswoman’s words. But, as soon as the adorner of the lives of men [SAINT = Peter] [lit. life-adorner of men] experienced true repentance, the sinless Peter washed his wickedness away completely with weeping.
