Síðan var fest, fljóð
— færri þótti betr — mær
með auði ilrjóð
ara, því göfugt var.
Drótt fekk boði brátt,
— beimum óx gleði þeim —
skata því skýr snót,
skilið, hugði gott til.

 

A maiden was then betrothed {to the footsole-reddener of the eagle} [WARRIOR] with wealth; few [lit. fewer] were thought better, for the woman was noble. People soon parted at the feast; good cheer increased for those men, because the bright woman of the man was well pleased with this.

notes: [2-3]: The text seems to be corrupt here, though its sense is recoverable.
