En Sigurðr
sýnu lifði
þeira lengst
þriggja brœðra,
hinn, es út
til Jórsala
frægsta fǫr
fór ór landi.

En Sigurðr lifði sýnu lengst þeira þriggja brœðra, hinn, es fór frægsta fǫr ór landi út til Jórsala.

But Sigurðr lived clearly the longest of those three brothers, that one who went on the most renowned journey abroad out to Jerusalem.

Mss: Flat(144vb)

Editions: Skj AI, 586, Skj BI, 584, Skald I, 284, NN §3245; Flat 1860-8, II, 525.

Notes: [All]: Sigurðr left Norway in 1108 and returned in 1111. For accounts of his journey to Palestine and Byzantium, see Theodoricus (MHN 65-6), Ágr (ÍF 29, 47-9), Mork 1928-32, 338-52, Fsk (ÍF 29, 315-20), MsonaHkr (ÍF 28, 239-54). The journey is also mentioned in foreign sources (see McDougall and McDougall 1998, 113 nn. 318-19, and the literature cited there). See also Hskv Útkv, Hskv Útdr, Þstf Stuttdr, ESk Sigdr I, Sjórs Lv 3. — [2] sýnu ‘clearly’: This adj. (dat. sg. of sýnn) functions as an intensifier (see Fritzner: sýnn 1). Kock’s contention (NN §3245) that the word is merely a filler is difficult to understand. — [8] ór landi ‘abroad’: Lit. ‘from the land’.
