Síðla ek kom        snemma kallaðr
        til dómsvalds dura;
þangat ek ætlumz;
        því mér heitit var;
        sá hefr krás, er krefr.

Ek kom síðla, kallaðr snemma til dura dómsvalds; ek ætlumz þangat; því var mér heitit; sá hefr krás, er krefr.

I came late, [I was] called early to the doors of the ruler of judgement; I intend to go there; that was promised to me; he who asks gets the delicacy.

Mss: 166bˣ(46v), papp15ˣ(3v), 738ˣ(81r), 214ˣ(150r), 1441ˣ(583), 10575ˣ(4v), 2797ˣ(233)

Readings: [2] kallaðr: so papp15ˣ, 10575ˣ, 2797ˣ, ek kallaði 166bˣ, ek kollaðusk 214ˣ    [3] dura: so 2797ˣ, dyra 166bˣ, 738ˣ, 214ˣ, 1441ˣ, 10575ˣ, dyrir papp15ˣ    [5] því: því at papp15ˣ, 738ˣ, 2797ˣ, þat 1441ˣ    [6] er: so papp15ˣ, 738ˣ, 214ˣ, 1441ˣ, 10575ˣ, 2797ˣ, om. 166bˣ

Editions: Skj: Anonyme digte og vers [XII], G [6]. Sólarljóð 29: AI, 632, BI, 640, Skald I, 311, NN §2150; Bugge 1867, 362, Falk 1914, 14, Björn M. Ólsen 1915, 12, Fidjestøl 1979, 64, Njörður Njarðvík 1991, 63-4, Njörður Njarðvík 1993, 35, 111.

Notes: [2] kallaðr ‘called’: 166bˣ has ek kallaði ‘I called’, but the verb has no object; the contrast between being called early and coming late seems to be what is intended. — [6] er ‘who’: Omitted by 166bˣ only, but is required by the syntax. Cf. John X.9: ego sum ostium per me si quis introierit salvabitur et ingredietur et egredietur et pascua inveniet ‘I am the door. By me, if any man enter in, he shall be saved: and he shall go in and go out, and shall find pastures’.
