‘Mier virðiz, sem miklu hærra
mætur guði hann Ádám sæti,
áðr eg sveik þau Évun bæði
ærusnauð í myrkr og dauða.
Satt er, að fæstir sjá við prettum;
svá mun enn um Jésúm þenna,
því treystumz eg framt að freista;
forðum hefir eg slægvitr vorðið.’

‘Mier virðiz, sem hann Ádám, mætur guði, sæti miklu hærra, áðr eg sveik þau Évun bæði, ærusnauð í myrkr og dauða. Satt er, að fæstir sjá við prettum; svá mun enn um þenna Jésúm, því treystumz eg að freista framt; forðum hefir eg vorðið slægvitr.’

‘It seems to me that this Adam, dear to God, sat much higher, before I betrayed the two of them, him and Eve bereft of honour, in darkness and death. It is true that very few watch out for deceit; it will go likewise for this Jesus; therefore I trust that I can tempt boldly; in the past I have shown myself to be wily of mind.’
