Anon Lil 58VII/7 — öndin ‘the soul’

Syni Máríu svartir færa
seggir blandið gall með dreggjum;
fulla smán og flestar pínur
fundu þeir, en heimrinn stundi.
Fölnar skinn en fellr að enni;
fættuz orð en þurru mættir;
öndin leið af Jésúm píndum,
yfirvaldanda himins og landa.

Svartir seggir færa syni Máríu gall blandið með dreggjum; þeir fundu fulla smán og flestar pínur, en heimrinn stundi. Skinn fölnar en fellr að enni; orð fættuz en mættir þurru; öndin leið af píndum Jésúm, yfirvaldanda himins og landa.

Black men bring the son of Mary gall mixed with dregs; they worked utter debasement and very many torments, and the world groaned. The skin pales and grows slack at the forehead; his words became fewer and his powers diminished; the soul departed from the tortured Jesus, supreme ruler of heaven and lands [= God (= Christ)].
