Gamlkan Jóndr 2VII/6 — dýrð ‘the glory’

Brigð kómu þess brátt, es hugði
bǫlfyldr konungr verða skyldu,
harðla fljótt, þvít huggan veitti
hreggskríns jǫfurr frænda sínum.
Alla náði eirar stillis
ítr postoli dýrð at líta,
humra nausts þás hǫfðu flestir
hreina þollar fréttir einar.

Brigð kómu brátt þess, es bǫlfyldr konungr hugði skyldu verða, þvít jǫfurr hreggskríns veitti huggan frænda sínum harðla fljótt. Ítr postoli náði at líta alla dýrð stillis eirar, þás flestir þollar hreina nausts humra hǫfðu einar fréttir.

Changes came about abruptly in that which the baleful king thought should happen, for the lord of the storm-shrine [HEAVEN > = God] granted comfort to his relative very quickly. The noble Apostle was able to see all the glory of the disposer of mercy [= God], of which most fir-trees of the reindeer of the boat-house of lobsters [SEA > SHIP > SEAFARERS] have only reports.
