Anon Sól 43VII/4 — þvít ‘for’

Sól ek sá        á sjónum skjálfandi
        hræzlufullr ok hnipinn,
þvít hjarta mitt        var harðla mjök
        runnit sundr í sega.

Hræzlufullr ok hnipinn, sá ek sól, skjálfandi á sjónum, þvít hjarta mitt var harðla mjök runnit sundr í sega.

Terrified and cowed, I saw the sun, trembling in my eyes, for my heart had completely turned to shreds.
