Note to Anon Andr 1VII

[6] æstr ‘most noble’: The nom. m. sg. form (the ms. reading) is retained by Konráð Gíslason 1860, 558. Cf. Note to 2/6 below. In Skj B and Skald the ms. form is emended to n. acc. sg. æzt, modifying yndi, and the passage is interpreted ‘Andrew, in his life a praiseworthy imitator of God, obtained the noblest joy of the kingdom of heaven on the most glorious cross’.
