Kálf Kátr 12VII l. 8

eingla — of angels


1. engill (noun m.; °engils; englar): angel



[8] þeingils dýrðar eingla ‘of the king of the glory of angels’: This is the emendation suggested by Finnur Jónsson (Skj B); Kock (Skald) has þengils háleits dýrðar ‘of the king of sublime glory’. There is at least one word missing in l. 8, and the kenning suggested here (‘of the king of the glory of angels’) may have had either an adj. or an additional noun element.
