Anon Eirm 5I/6 — vôn ‘expecting’

‘Sigmundr ok Sinfjǫtli,         rísið snarliga
        ok gangið í gǫgn grami.
Inn þú bjóð,         ef Eirekr séi;
        hans es mér nú vôn vituð.’

‘Sigmundr ok Sinfjǫtli, rísið snarliga ok gangið í gǫgn grami. Bjóð þú inn, ef Eirekr séi; vôn hans es nú vituð mér.’

‘Sigmundr and Sinfjǫtli, rise quickly and go to meet the prince. Invite [him] in, if it is Eiríkr; it is he I am expecting now.’


[6] vôn hans es nú vituð mér ‘it is he I am now expecting’: Lit. ‘expectation of him is now known to me’.
