Bjbp Jóms 13I/7 — eigi ‘was not’

Búi lézk barr at fylgja
bǫðmildum Sigvalda
til hjǫrþrymu harðrar
hugprúðr vera síðan.
Hafa kvazk Hávarð vilja
hranna brjótr at gunni;
sér kvað hann eigi illa
Áslák í fǫr líka.

Síðan lézk hugprúðr Búi vera barr at fylgja bǫðmildum Sigvalda til harðrar hjǫrþrymu. Brjótr hranna kvazk hafa vilja Hávarð at gunni; hann kvað Áslák líka sér eigi illa í fǫr.

Courageous Búi then said he was ready to follow battle-liberal Sigvaldi into hard sword-thunder [BATTLE]. The breaker of waves [SEAFARER = Búi] said he wanted to have Hávarðr for the battle; he said Áslákr was not unpleasing to him on the journey.

notes

[7, 8] líka sér eigi illa ‘was not unpleasing to him’: Lit. ‘to please him not badly’.
