Anon Heil 24VII/4 — þínar ‘your’

Guðs einkason, gietinn af móður,
gættu vár, þá er líkams mættir
þverra fast, og þeir eru næri,
er þínar skepnur vilja pína.
Skírir menn hjá skapara várum
skína fagrt, er þoldu pínur;
Kristur hefir þá krafti dýstum
kórónað fyr þrautir stórar.

Guðs einkason, gietinn af móður, gættu vár, þá er mættir líkams þverra fast og þeir, er vilja pína þínar skepnur, eru næri. Skírir menn, er þoldu pínur, skína fagrt hjá várum skapara; Kristur hefir kórónað þá dýstum krafti fyr stórar þrautir.

God’s only son [= Christ], born of a mother, watch over us, when the strengths of the body strongly fade and those who want to torment your creatures are close by. Pure men, who suffered torments, shine beautifully with our Creator; Christ has crowned them with the most glorious power for their great struggles.


[4] er þínar skepnur ‘who your creatures’: Kock (Skald; NN §2889) emends to þínar skepnur er; see, however, NN §1767.
