Ok fimm, sás gaf gumnum
gló-Lista, vann kristin,
lǫnd élboði Gǫndlar.
Hvern viti hjalma þornar
— hann vas ríkstr konungmanna —
elda runn, es unni
eljun slíkt, at telja?
Ok Gǫndlar élboði, sás gaf gumnum gló-Lista ljótbrýnanda lautar, vann kristin fimm lǫnd. Hvern runn elda viti þornar hjalma at telja, es unni eljun slíkt? Hann vas ríkstr konungmanna.
And the offerer of the storm of Gǫndul <valkyrie> [(lit. ‘storm-offerer of Gǫndul’) BATTLE > WARRIOR], he who gave men the gleaming Lista of the ugly edging of the dale [= Miðgarðsormr > GOLD], made five lands Christian. What bush of swords [WARRIOR] do thorn-trees of helmets [WARRIORS] know to mention, who loved enterprise in such a way? He was the mightiest of kingly men.
[1, 2, 4] vann kristin fimm lǫnd ‘made five lands Christian’: That is, Norway, Shetland, Orkney, Iceland and Greenland, listed in sts 12 and 13; see Note to st. 12 [All]. The Christianizing of five lands is also the subject of HSt Rst 10-11.
