text and translation

The new edition is either unpublished or unavailable.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

Egill segir: ‘Freista skal eg þessa ráðs, er þú vilt, en ekki hefi eg við því búist að yrkja lof um Eirík konung.’
Arinbjörn bað hann freista; síðan gekk hann brott til manna sinna; sátu þeir að drykkju til miðrar nætur. Þá gekk Arinbjörn til svefnhúss og sveit hans, og áður hann afklæddist, gekk hann upp í loftið til Egils og spurði, hvað þá liði um kvæðið.
Egill segir að ekki var ort - ‘hefir hér setið svala ein við glugginn og klakað í alla nótt, svo að eg hefi aldregi beðið ró fyrir.’
