Anon Pét 38VII/1 — Grípa ‘seize’

Grípa guð með ópi
griðníðingar síðan;
særðan bundinn börðu;
bar klungr enni sprungið.
Negla Krist með nöglum;
nemr spjót hjarta rótum;
ben náði hans blæða;
blóð fell á kross góðan.

Síðan grípa griðníðingar guð með ópi; börðu særðan, bundinn; sprungið enni bar klungr. Negla Krist með nöglum; spjót nemr hjarta rótum; ben hans náði blæða; blóð fell á góðan kross.

Then the truce-breakers seize God with shouting; they beat him wounded, bound; his riven brow bore the thorn[-crown]. They nail Christ with nails; the spear strikes his heart at the roots; his wound did bleed; blood fell on the good Cross.
