Ník Jóndr 2VII/4 — hirðar ‘in the court’

Þeim unni guð geymi
guðdóms, es vel sómir,
hreinum himna sýnar,
hirðar vist með Kristi.
Jón, heyrðir þú orða
eilífs fǫður deili,
hollr við oss, ok allan
almôtt séa knáttir.

Guð unni sýnar himna þeim hreinum geymi guðdóms, es vist hirðar með Kristi vel sómir. Jón, hollr við oss, þú heyrðir deili orða eilífs fǫður ok knáttir séa allan almôtt.

God granted a vision of the heavens to that pure guardian of divinity [APOSTLE], whom an abode in the court with Christ well beseems. John, gracious towards us, you heard the distinctive features of the words of the eternal Father and were able to see all [his] omnipotence.
