Bjbp Jóms 7I l. 6

glym — the crash


glymr (noun m.): noise



[5, 6] sjá þar glym járna ‘see there the crash of iron weapons [BATTLE]’: So also Fms 12. The inf. verb sjá ‘see’ is compatible with the referent of the kenning, battle, but not with the base-word glym ‘crash, tumult’. In Skj B and Skald, arfa Véseta ‘the heir of Véseti [= Búi]’ is taken as the object of sjá and glym járna ‘crash of iron weapons [BATTLE]’ as the object of efla ‘support’ in the intercalary clause.
