Declension[edit]

Note: this declension, highly irregular and unique in Icelandic, is taken directly from the Latin declension (see the Latin entry Iēsus). Originally, the accusative was always Jesúm, but in recent times it is more commonly Jesú, under influence from the other case forms. Also note the distinct vocative form, Jesú, whereas for other Icelandic words the nominative form is normally used in vocative constructions.
