Calling all Medivalists

Edward Gauvin has translated the French story we bought for Interfictions 2--and very beautifully, too. The thing is, there's this sentence in medieval French which needs to be translated into Middle English, and neither of us is really up to it. Can anybody out there oblige?

Here's the sentence:

"Ja non! Sire, c'est offence! Mien braz est vostre, et ja ne guerpirai."

For those who might be up to the Middle English but not the French, it translates roughly thus: "Not I. Sire, it is blasphemy. My arm is yours, and I will not stray."
