Lopt eflir goð giptu
(gengr fæst af því) hæstri;
kœnn styðr krapti sínum
Ketils lán jǫfurr mána;
œztr lér ævi beztrar
alls dróttinn þér Halla;
dýrr magni þrif Þóru
þengill hǫfuðengla.

Réð grams laga greiðir,
góð vas stjórn of þjóðum,
sextán vetr enn snotri
sólar byskups-stóli;
nú's meinbǫnnuðr manna
málsnjallr heðan kallaðr;
komi Páll í frið fullan
fljótt með himna drótni.

Dáðhittir gat dróttins
dýrgeðr lǫgum stýra,
sitt bjó sannvinr rétta,
sextán vetr, til betra;
hyggjum hitt at (seggja)
hjalpríkum vel líkar
(gagn vann af hug hreinum)
hans ǫnn goði ok mǫnnum.

Lýðr á allr fyr eyði
ormsætrs við goð mætan,
þeims gerði frið fyrða,
farsælum vel mæla;
bœnum brátt at skíni
blíðgeðr hǫfuðfeðra
þanns ýta bǫl bœtir
byskup órr með kóra.

Sitt réð selja
sandauðigt land
fullsviðr Flosi
fúss Dufgúsi;
nú hefr keypta
kvalráðr fala
geirs glymstœrir
glaðr Baugstaði.

Information about a text: poem, sequence of stanzas, or prose work

This page is used for different resources. For groups of stanzas such as poems, you will see the verse text and, where published, the translation of each stanza. These are also links to information about the individual stanzas.

For prose works you will see a list of the stanzas and fragments in that prose work, where relevant, providing links to the individual stanzas.

Where you have access to introduction(s) to the poem or prose work in the database, these will appear in the ‘introduction’ section.

The final section, ‘sources’ is a list of the manuscripts that contain the prose work, as well as manuscripts and prose works linked to stanzas and sections of a text.
