Hrækjandi mjög höfuðin skóku
heiðingjar sem Júðar leiðir;
flestir allir flýðu Kristi
fylgdarmenn við storminn þenna.
Minnaz verð eg — eg ei annað —
móður guðs, er í tárum flóði;
mætti verða, minna sótta
minnaz vildi hun eitthvert sinni.

 

Spitting much, they shook their heads, heathens as well as loathsome Jews; nearly all the followers of Christ fled in the face of that storm. I must rememberI cannot do otherwise — {the mother of God} [= Mary] who was flooded with tears; it could come about that she would at some time want to be mindful of my sorrows.

notes: [3-4]: The disciples fled when Jesus was arrested (Matt. XXVI.56, Mark XIV.50).

editions: Skj Eysteinn Ásgrímsson: Lilja 53 (AII, 380; BII, 404); Skald II, 221.
