Gamlkan Has 57VII/3 — dýrri ‘precious’

Heldr dœmðu mik, hǫlða
happvinnandi, þinni
meir af miskunn dýrri,
mætastr, an réttlæti.
Lít ok virð, sem vættik,
valdr blásinna tjalda
hreggs, at hjǫlp of þiggi,
hár, óstyrkðir várar.

Mætastr happvinnandi hǫlða, dœmðu mik heldr meir af þinni dýrri miskunn an réttlæti. Lít ok virð óstyrkðir várar, sem vættik, at of þiggi hjǫlp, hár valdr blásinna tjalda hreggs.

Most illustrious luck-worker of men [= God], judge me rather more out of your precious mercy than justice. Consider and evaluate our [my] frailties, which, I expect, may receive help, high ruler of the windswept tents of the storm [SKY/HEAVEN > = God].
