ESk Geisl 45VII/2 — dyrð ‘fame’

Nú fremr, þanns gaf gumnum,
gǫfug dyrð jǫfur fyrða,
(slǫng Eindriði ungi)
armglœðr (í brag rœðu).
Greitt má gumnum létta
guðs ríðari stríðum;
rǫskr þiggr allt, sem œskir,
Óláfr af gram sólar.

Nú fremr gǫfug dyrð jǫfur fyrða, þanns gaf gumnum armglœðr; Eindriði ungi slǫng rœðu í brag. Guðs ríðari má greitt létta stríðum gumnum; rǫskr Óláfr þiggr allt, sem œskir, af gram sólar.

Now excellent fame promotes the prince of men [= Óláfr], the one who gave men arm-embers [GOLD]; Eindriði ungi (‘the Young’) cast the story into the poem. God’s knight [SAINT = Óláfr] can easily alleviate afflictions for men; brave Óláfr gets all he desires from the king of the sun [= God].
