GunnLeif Merl II 30VIII (Bret 30)/7 — hvatliga ‘with alacrity’

‘Ok suðr skulu þeir         sveitar leita;
vekr vargr ok bjǫrn         villigalta.
En galti þeim         gengi sínu
heitr hvatliga,         þvít hann hug trúir.

‘Ok þeir skulu leita sveitar suðr; vargr ok bjǫrn vekr villigalta. En galti heitr þeim gengi sínu hvatliga, þvít hann trúir hug.

‘And they will have to seek for an army in the south; the wolf and the bear will rouse a wild boar. And the boar will promise them his support with alacrity, since he trusts in his [own] courage.
