Chapter 6


(II 6 (5).) (1) The first request: that your pre-eminence shall be in Armagh. The second request: that whoever on the day of his separation from the body recites the hymn that has been composed about you will be judged by you as regards the penance for his sins. (2) The third request: that the descendants of Díchu, who kindly received you, shall find mercy and shall not perish. (3) The fourth request: that all the Irish on the day of judgement shall be judged by you (as is said to the apostles: ‘And you shall sit and judge the twelve tribes of Israel’), so that you may judge those whose apostle you have been.
