Kraka þrautat kapp
— konung sótti happ,
hinns brynþing bauð —
at brjóta auð,
þvít buðlungr var,
sás benjar skar,
— honum tíddisk hildr —
hugprúðr ok mildr.

Þrautat Kraka kapp at brjóta auð; happ sótti konung, hinns bauð {brynþing}, þvít buðlungr, sás skar benjar, var hugprúðr ok mildr; hildr tíddisk honum.

Zeal was not wanting in Kraki when he broke wealth; good fortune sought out the king, the one who offered {byrnie-assembly} [BATTLE], because the ruler, who cut wounds, was gallant and generous; battle gave pleasure to him.

Mss: papp25ˣ(35v), R683ˣ(130r-v)

Readings: [1] þrautat: ‘þraut ar’ papp25ˣ, ‘þraut æi’ R683ˣ

Editions: Skj: Rǫgnvaldr jarl og Hallr Þórarinsson, Háttalykill 24b: AI, 521, BI, 499, Skald I, 245; Hl 1941, 27, 73-4.

Context: As st. 47 above.

Notes: [1] þrautat ‘was not wanting’: Used impersonally with two accusatives. The ending -at is the negative suffix (miscopied as ‘-ar’ by Rugman in papp25ˣ and rendered as ‘æi’ ‘not’ in R683ˣ). — [3] hinns bauð brynþing ‘the one who offered byrnie-assembly [BATTLE]’: This clause could also go with Kraka (l. 1) (Kraka, hinns bauð brynþing ‘Kraki, the one who offered byrnie-assembly’; so Skj B and Skald). — [4] at brjóta auð ‘when he broke wealth’: Lit. ‘to break wealth’, i.e. ‘to distribute gold’. — [5] var ‘was’: The rhyme shows that earlier [s] in var (< vas) has been rhotacised. See Note to st. 13/1 above. — [7] hildr tíddisk honum ‘battle gave pleasure to him’: Lit. ‘battle was fashionable with him’. See st. 65/2.
