Þar kom blindr — en byrjak
blíð verk — muni síðar
auðar njótr, es ýtar
jǫfurs bein þvegit hǫfðu.
Sjónbrautir þó sínar,
seggjum kunns, í brunni
ôrr, þeims Óláfs dreyra,
orms landa, vas blandinn.
Blindr njótr auðar kom þar muni síðar, es ýtar hǫfðu þvegit jǫfurs bein; en byrjak blíð verk. Ôrr orms landa þó sjónbrautir sínar í brunni, þeims vas blandinn dreyra Óláfs, kunns seggjum.
A blind enjoyer of wealth [MAN] came there somewhat later, where men had washed the prince’s bones; and I will begin the happy work. The messenger of the serpent’s lands [GOLD > MAN] washed his sight-paths [EYES] in the spring which was blended with the blood of Óláfr, known to men.
[7, 8] ôrr orms landa ‘messenger of the serpent’s lands [GOLD > MAN]’: The kenning is parallel to auðar njótr (l. 3). rr ‘servant’ or ‘messenger’ as a base-word may signify that the cured man is the vehicle through which Óláfr’s favour with God is made known in the world.
