Anon Lil 19VII/7 — syndum ‘sins’

Refsar þeim að riettum dómi
ríkr herra fyr ódygð slíka;
rak þau braut af sæmdarsæti
snauð og nökt í myrkr og dauða.
Veltuz aum í veslum heimi
víða lands, þar er nær öll síðan
lýða kind af sárum syndum
sendiz fram af Ádáms lendum.

Fyr slíka ódygð refsar ríkr herra þeim að riettum dómi; rak þau braut, snauð og nökt, af sæmdarsæti í myrkr og dauða. Veltuz aum víða lands í veslum heimi, þar er nær öll kind lýða sendiz fram síðan af sárum syndum af lendum Ádáms.

For such faithlessness the powerful Lord punishes them with a just judgement: he drove them away, poor and naked, from the seat of honour into darkness and death. They wandered wretched far and wide about the land in the woeful world, where nearly all of the race of men because of painful sins have been sent forth since from Adam’s loins.


[7] syndum: so 720a VIII, 99a, 622, 713, Vb, 41 8°ˣ, 705ˣ, 4892, om. Bb


[7] af sárum syndum ‘because of painful sins’: Sárum is the last word in the l. in Bb: the omission of syndum is probably a careless scribal error.
