Bliktýnir vann beina
sunds (tóksk harmr af hǫndum
hôr), þeims komnir vôru.
Útbeiti frák Áta
undrask brœðr, þás fundu,
skíðs, á skrautvals beiði
skokks áhyggju þokka.
Sunds bliktýnir vann beina gestum, þeims vôru komnir; hôr harmr tóksk af hǫndum bauglestanda. Frák brœðr undrask útbeiti skíðs Áta, þás fundu þokka áhyggju á beiði skrautvals skokks.
The destroyer of the shine of the channel [(lit. ‘shine-destroyer of the channel’) GOLD > GENEROUS MAN] gave hospitality to the guests who had arrived; deep sorrow lifted from the ring-destroyer [GENEROUS MAN]. I have heard that the brothers wondered at the steerer of the ski of Áti <sea-king> [SHIP > SEAFARER], when they sensed a disposition of anxiety in the demander of the adornment-horse of the deck-plank [SHIP > SEAFARER].
 tóksk af ‘passed from, lifted’: Tóksk is very faint in the ms. and Jón Helgason (1932-3) read ‘iocsk’ (jóksk ‘increased’). The <f> is unfinished in af and Jón emends to at, producing a reading ‘deep sorrow increased for [Plácitus]’. In support of this reading, he cites the saga, which at this point states that Plácitus’s sorrow increases: ... og minntist hinnz fyrra lyfsinnz og matti ey uatnne hallda, af miklum hrigdleyk ‘[he] remembered his former life and could not stop himself from weeping from his great affliction’ (Tucker 1998, 81); also other uses of at hǫndum, at hendi in the poem in sts 37/6 and 44/7. However, although faint, the ms. is more likely to read ‘tocsk’ and ‘af’ than Jón’s suggestions.
