text and translation

The new edition is either unpublished or unavailable.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

Sighvatur Sturluson bjó í Hjarðarholti nokkura vetur. Síðan keypti hann Sauðafell og fór þangað nautfellisvetur og bjó þar. Hann gerðist mikill höfðingi og vinsæll við sína menn. Með þeim Kolbeini Tumasyni var hin mesta vinátta með tengdum. Kolbeinn réð þá mestu fyrir norðan land og hafði öll goðorð fyrir vestan Öxnadalsheiði til móts við Eyvellingagoðorð. En Þorsteinn Ívarsson gaf Snorra Sturlusyni Eyvellingagoðorð það er hann átti en Melmenn áttu sinn hlut. Fyrir norðan Öxnadalsheiði áttu þeir goðorð Ögmundur sneis og Hallur Kleppjárnsson. Þorvaldur son Guðmundar hins dýra fékk Sigurði Ormssyni þau goðorð er hann hafði átt. Sigurður gaf þau goðorð Tuma syni Sighvats og komst Sighvatur svo að þeim síðan.
