Anon Brúðv 30VII/3 — ljót ‘hideous’

Aldri láttu, mær mild,
mig, ef eg bið þig,
fyrir víti var ljót
verða með svikaferð.
Því æsti eg þig trausts;
þú hjálp mier við nú,
seggja — em eg Drótt dygg,
djarfastr — er eg mjög þarf.

Láttu mig aldri, mild mær, verða var fyrir ljót víti með svikaferð, ef eg bið þig. Því æsti eg þig trausts; hjálp þú mier nú við, er eg þarf mjög; eg em djarfastr, dygg Drótt seggja.

Never let me, gentle maiden, become a shelter for hideous sins with multitudes of deceits, if I petition you. Therefore I ask you for support; help me now, when I need [it] greatly; I am very arrogant, faithful Drótt <queen> of men [= Mary].
