ÞjóðA Har 7II/1 — þeysti ‘rushed’

Haraldr þeysti nú hraustla
helming sinn at Elfi;
náttar Nóregs dróttinn
nær at landamæri.
Gramr á þing við Þumla;
þars eindagaðr Sveini
hrafni skyldr, nema haldi,
hans fundr, Danir undan.

Haraldr þeysti nú helming sinn hraustla at Elfi; dróttinn Nóregs náttar nær at landamæri. Gramr á þing við Þumla; þars fundr hans, skyldr hrafni, eindagaðr Sveini, nema Danir haldi undan.

Haraldr has now rushed his troop boldly towards the Götaälv (Elfr); the lord of Norway [= Haraldr] overnights close to the lands’ boundary. The prince holds an assembly off Þumli; there a meeting with him, owed to the raven, is appointed for Sveinn, unless the Danes head away.

readings

[1] þeysti: þrýstir H, Hr

notes

[1] þeysti ‘has rushed’: The minority variant þrýstir ‘presses’ would normally be either intransitive or would govern the dat. case, and therefore does not fit the present context.
