Sigv ErfÓl 22I l. 5

hœgri — right


hœgri (adj. comp.): higher, highest



[5-6] á hœgri hǫnd ‘at [his] right hand’: Óláfr clearly favours ‘the Christian troop’, i.e. those who ‘believed in God’ (as in l. 1). Finnur Jónsson (Hkr 1893-1901, IV) suggests this is an allusion to the parable of the sheep and the goats in Matthew XXV.31-46.
