text and translation

The new edition is either unpublished or unavailable.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



Ingólfur var frægastur allra landnámsmanna, því að hann kom
hér að óbyggðu landi og byggði fyrstur landið; gerðu það
aðrir landnámsmenn eftir hans dæmum.



Ingólfur átti Hallveigu Fróðadóttur, systur Lofts hins gamla;
þeirra son var Þorsteinn, er þing lét setja á Kjalarnesi,
áður alþingi var sett.



Son Þorsteins var Þorkell máni lögsögumaður, er einn heiðinna
manna hefir best verið siðaður, að því er menn viti dæmi til.
Hann lét sig bera í sólargeisla í banasótt sinni og fal sig á
hendi þeim guði, er sólina hafði skapað; hafði hann og lifað
svo hreinliga sem þeir kristnir menn, er best eru siðaðir.
Son hans var Þormóður, er þá var allsherjargoði, er kristni
kom á Ísland. Hans son var Hamall, faðir Más og Þormóðar og
Torfa.
