Anon Sól 70VII/2 — hug ‘spirit’

Menn sá ek þá,        er af miklum hug
        veittu fátækum frama;
lásu englar        helgar bækr
        ok himna skript yfir höfði þeim.

Ek sá menn þá, er af miklum hug veittu fátækum frama; englar lásu helgar bækr ok himna skript yfir höfði þeim.

I saw men then who from a generous spirit offered support to the poor; angels read holy books and heavenly writing [lit. writing of the heavens] over their heads.
