Anon Pét 10VII/2 — borgar ‘city’

Bessaíðe breiðrar
borgar víðum torgum
tveir bræður með tíri
trúlundaðir funduz.
List gera frægir fysta
fiskimanna að kanna;
sá varð giftugjörðum
gæddr, að slíka fæddi.

Bessaíðe, víðum torgum breiðrar borgar, funduz tveir trúlundaðir bræður með tíri. Frægir gera að kanna list fiskimanna fysta; sá, að slíka fæddi, varð gæddr giftugjörðum.

In Bethsaida, in the wide squares of the broad city, were found two brothers, faithful of mind, of renown. The famed ones do try the craft of fishermen first; he who begot such men was endowed with grace.
