text and translation

The new edition is either unpublished or unavailable. The following is taken from an old edition (Skj where relevant):

Haraldr konungr fór einn vetr at veizlum um Upplǫnd ok lét búa sér til jólaveizlu á Þoptum. Jólaaptan kom Svási fyrir dyrr þá er konungr sat yfir borði ok sendi konungi boð, at hann skyldi út ganga til hans. En konungr brásk reiðr við þeim sendiboðum, ok bar inn sami reiði konungs út sem honum hafði borit inn boðin. En Svási bað bera eigi at síðr annað sinn ørindit ok kvað sik vera þann Finninn, er konungr hafði játat at setja gamma sinn annan veg brekkunnar þar. En konungr gekk út ok varð honum þess jázi, at fara heim með honum ok gekk yfir brekkuna með áeggjan sumra sinna manna, þótt sumir letti. Þar stóð upp Snæfríðr, dóttir Svása, kvinna fríðust, ok byrlaði konungi ker fullt mjaðar, en hann tók allt saman ok hǫnd hennar, ok þegar var sem eldshiti kvæmi í hǫrund hans ok vildi þegar hafa hana á þeiri nótt. En Svási sagði, at þat myndi eigi vera nema at honum nauðgum, nema konungr festi hana ok fengi at lǫgum, en konungr festi Snæfríði ok fekk ok unni svá með œrslum, at ríki sitt ok allt þat, er honum byrjaði, þá fyrir lét hann. Þau áttu fjóra sonu, einn var Sigurðr hrísi, Hálfdan háleggr, Guðrøður ljómi, Rǫgnvaldur réttilbeini.
