 váða (m. dat. sg.) ‘danger’: The construction is impersonal, lit. ‘it threatened his condition with danger’ (see Sperber; NN §2873). Skald emends to váði (m. nom. sg.) ‘danger’ and treats the noun as the subject of giekk lit. ‘went’. Wrightson takes an implicit hann ‘he’ as the subject and váða as an unattested adv. ‘dangerously’ (‘he trod dangerously with his situation’). This interpretation is ungrammatical, because the possessive hans ‘his’ is not refl. (we would expect sitt lit. ‘his own’).
