Anon Pét 52VII/3 — næsta* ‘a severely’

Giekk að nóni nökkur,
nær miskunnar tærir
mustari; mann sá næsta*
meiddan; fjár sier beiddi.
‘Penning ág til aungvan,
auðsýtir, þier býta;
vertu heill’, kvað hittir
heiðrs jafn, ‘í guðs nafni’.

Að nóni giekk tærir miskunnar nökkur nær mustari; sá næsta* meiddan mann; beiddi fjár sier. ‘Ág aungvan penning til, auðsýtir, býta þier; vertu heill í guðs nafni’, kvað jafn hittir heiðrs.

At the ninth hour the giver of mercy [APOSTLE] walked somewhere near the temple; he saw a severely maimed man [who] asked for money for himself. ‘I have no coin, wealth-yearner [POOR MAN], to give you; be well in God’s name’, said the righteous finder of glory [APOSTLE].
