Anon Líkn 48VII/4 — þínu ‘of you’

Bæn heyr, bragningr, mína,
bila muntat þú vilja
veita vægð at móti,
veðrskríns, lofi þínu.
Sjálfr eggjar þú seggja
sveit á þik at heita
(þat viðr), gumna gætir,
(gerbænan mik) hverja.

Bragningr veðrskríns, heyr mína bæn; þú muntat vilja bila veita vægð at móti lofi þínu. Sjálfr eggjar þú hverja seggja sveit at heita á þik, gumna gætir; þat viðr mik gerbænan.

King of the storm-shrine [HEAVEN > = God], hear my prayer; you will not desire to fail to grant mercy in return for praise of you [lit. your praise]. You yourself urge each host of men to call upon you, guardian of men [= God]; that makes me prayer-eager.
