Anon Pét 4VII/7 — ván ‘hope’

Gróf, sá er græðgi reifir,
grandafullur andi
brjóst, og bar inn löstu
brúkum, mitt ið sjúka,
saman þó loðir með lími
lífs hinna fyr innan;
það er ván guðligs gróða
græn fyr Pétri bænir.

Grandafullur andi, sá er reifir græðgi, gróf ið sjúka brjóst mitt, og bar inn löstu brúkum, þó loðir saman fyr innan hinna með lífs lími; það er græn ván guðligs gróða fyr Pétri bænir.

The harmful spirit, who promotes greed, bored into my sick breast, and carried in vices in heaps, yet within those [vices] it cleaves together with the mortar of life; that is the green hope of godly growth through Peter’s prayers.
