Blakkr Breiðdr 2II/1 — meðan ‘while’

Hafði, hér meðan lifði,
hvárttveggja Breiðskeggi:
— nús friðspillir fallinn —
fæst gótt ok dul hæsta.

Breiðskeggi hafði, meðan lifði hér, hvárttveggja: fæst gótt ok hæsta dul; nús friðspillir fallinn.

Breiðskeggi had, while he lived here, two qualities: the least goodness and the greatest conceit; now the peace-spoiler has fallen.
