Ænglisc … Anglo Saxon Text … þās eorðan

Hit ġelamp on sumum dæġe,
ðā ðā Godes enġlas cōmon
and on his ġesihðe stōdon,
ðā wæs ēacswylċe se
scucca him betwux.

Tō ðām cwæð Drihten,
“Hwanon cōme ðū?”
Se sceocca andwyrde,
“Iċ fērde ġeond þās eorðan
and hī beēode.”

Now there was a day when the sons of God
came to present themselves before the LORD,
and Satan came also among them.

And the LORD said unto Satan,
Whence comest thou?

Then Satan answered the LORD, and said,
From going to and fro in the earth,

and from walking up and down in it.
