ESk Geisl 36VII/7 — allt ‘all’

Hildings hefir haldin
hôtíð verit síðan
— sannspurt es þat sunnan —
snjalls of Danmǫrk alla.
Greitt má gumnum létta
guðs ríðari stríðum;
rǫskr þiggr allt sem œskir,
Óláfr af gram sólar.

Síðan hefir hôtíð snjalls hildings verit haldin of alla Danmǫrk; þat es sannspurt sunnan. Guðs ríðari má greitt létta stríðum gumnum; rǫskr Óláfr þiggr allt, sem œskir, af gram sólar.

Since then the feast of the clever warrior has been observed throughout all Denmark; that is truly learned from the south. God’s knight [SAINT = Óláfr] can easily alleviate afflictions for men; brave Óláfr gets all he desires from the king of the sun [= God].


[5-8] abbrev. as ‘Greitt’ Flat, ‘Greitt m.’ Bb
