ÞjóðA Sex 17II l. 4

hrjóða — cleared


1. hrjóða (verb): clear, destroy


[4] hrjóða: so F, E, H, Hr, ‘rioð’ Kˣ, rjóða 39, J2ˣ, FskBˣ, FskAˣ, Flat, ‘hroþa’ Mork


[4] hrjóða ‘cleared’: The inf. depends on kvðu ‘they said’, hence lit. ‘they said to clear’. The variant rjóða (where it is not merely a Norwegianism for hrjóða, as probably in the Fsk mss) also makes good sense: ‘redden (with blood)’.
