Kálf Kátr 27VII/7 — lýða ‘of people’

Kátrín beiddi hann Kristi játa
klökkvandi en neita fjanda:
‘síðan tak þú synd að hrjóða,
seims tínandi, úr brjósti þínu.
Einum skaltu í þrenning þjóna
þeim, er skafti sól og heima,
föður og syni, og ferðir lýða
flóð og land, og helgum anda’.

Kátrín beiddi hann klökkvandi játa Kristi en neita fjanda: ‘síðan tak þú að hrjóða synd úr brjósti þínu, tínandi seims. Skaltu þjóna einum í þrenning, föður og syni og helgum anda, þeim, er skafti sól og heima og ferðir lýða, flóð og land’.

Catherine asked him on the verge of tears to profess Christ and deny the devil: ‘subsequently you shall banish sin from your breast, collector of gold [MAN]. You shall serve one in Trinity, Father and Son and Holy Spirit, the one who created the sun and worlds and crowds of people, [as well as] sea and land’.
