Anon Nkt 37II/2 — hygg ‘intend’

Þós þess máls,
es ek mæla hygg,
meiri hlutr
miklu eptir.
Nú skal þat
þaðan af greiða
jǫfra kyns,
es enn lifir.

Þós eptir miklu meiri hlutr þess máls, es ek hygg mæla. Skal nú þaðan af greiða þat kyns jǫfra, es enn lifir.

Yet there is a much greater part left of the story which I intend to tell. I shall now, henceforth, present that [story] of the kin of princes which still lives.
