Braut varð hjǫrtr frá hreyti
— heim fór at þat — seima;
Krist bað frægr við freistni
fultings boði hringa.
Sagði drengr, þaus dugðu,
(dolglinns*) konu sinni
(rǫskr gat hug við háska)
heit goðssonar (beitir).

 

The hart went away from {the flinger of gold}; he [GENEROUS MAN] went home after that; {the famous offerer of rings} [GENEROUS MAN] asked Christ for help in the face of his trial. The man told his wife the promises {of God’s son}, [= Christ] which were powerful; {the brave handler {of the battle-serpent}} [SWORD > WARRIOR] received courage against danger.

notes: For the several verbal echoes between this st. and the C text of the saga, see Louis-Jensen 1998, cxii.
