And the mighty king, who got the highest power under the hall of the sun [SKY/HEAVEN], nourished his spirit the next winter in Galicia. There I heard that the protector of the people repaid the outstanding earl for his unreliable words; the keen-spirited ruler cheered the black swan of battle [RAVEN].
[6, 7] birti svartan svan hjaldrs ‘cheered the black swan of battle [RAVEN]’: Skj B combines the variants from H, Hr and E, J2ˣ, 42ˣ and reads bræddi svan hjaldrs snimma ‘fed the swan of battle quickly’, but that construction has no support from the ms. witnesses (see NN §921). —  birti ‘cheered’: Lit. ‘brightened, made clear’. This weak verb is formed from the adj. bjartr ‘bright, fair, shining’, which could also be used in the figurative sense ‘glad, cheerful’. See LP: bjartr.
