Skôru jast ór osti
eybaugs Dana meyjar
— þat of angraði þengil
þing — akkerishringa.
Nú sér mǫrg í morgun
mær — hlær at því færi —
ernan krók ór jarni
allvalds skipum halda.
Meyjar Dana eybaugs skôru akkerishringa ór jastosti; þat þing of angraði þengil. Nú í morgun sér mǫrg mær ernan krók ór jarni halda skipum allvalds; færi hlær at því.
The girls of the Danes of the island-ring [SEA] carved anchor-rings from yeast-cheese; that object angered the lord. Now this morning many a maiden sees a powerful hook of iron holding the mighty ruler’s ships; fewer laugh at that.
 ór jastosti ‘from yeast-cheese’: Kock (NN §1953A) objected to this tmesis and suggested the reading skru jastar osti translated as skuro av jästost ‘cut from yeast-cheese’. That reading is not supported by any ms. Jastostr is a hap. leg. and it is not clear what type of cheese this could have been (see ÍF 28, 100 n.; Grøn 1927, 100). Skj B translates it as myseost, a brown cheese made from the whey of cow’s milk, which is, however, not made with yeast. The Fsk variant, skru oss ór osti ‘cut for us from cheese’, is secondary and leaves the l. with faulty internal rhyme.
