Svá er greinanda; á samri stundu
sem eingillinn tók að spillaz,
söktiz hann með sínum grönnum
sem blývarða í djúpleik jarðar,
blindan þar sem föður sinn fjandann
feikt ofbeldið kvelr í eldi;
fávíss er sá, er feðgin þessi
faðma vill en siðunum spilla.

Svá er greinanda, á samri stundu sem eingillinn tók að spillaz, söktiz hann sem blývarða með grönnum sínum í djúpleik jarðar, þar sem feikt ofbeldið kvelr blindan föður sinn, fjandann, í eldi; fávíss er sá, er vill faðma þessi feðgin en spilla siðunum.

So it is to tell at the very moment when the angel began to destroy himself, he sank down like a plumb bob with his comrades into the depth of the earth, where terrible pride torments her blind father, the fiend, in fire; ignorant is he who wants to embrace this father and daughter and destroy his morals.
