Bríma þýðiz bóknám
brauta með siða skraut
æsir, þá er ungr var,
ögurs og guðs lög.
Bæði gjörðiz bókfróðr
beiðir, er skamt leið,
röðuls — var hann raunsviðr —
rastar og trúfastr.

 

{The flinger {of the fire {of the roads of the redfish}}} [SEA > GOLD > GENEROUS MAN] embraces book-learning and God’s laws with the ornament of good conduct when he was young. {The demander {of the sun of the current}} [GOLD > MAN] became both book-wise and firm of faith after a short while; he was trulywise.

notes: In the D-version of Mar, the young klerkr is said to have been sent to school (Mar 1871, 118: ok er hann óx upp var hann í skóla settr ‘and when he grew up he was put to school’).

editions: Skj Not in Skj; ÍM II, 130.
