Counsel-provider of the troop of men [MANKIND > APOSTLE], I have heard that you, splendid in munificence, acquired for yourself elevation in honour from the suppressor of falsehood [= God (= Christ)] — you did not go without the blessing of Christ — that the famous lord of the hall of the sun [SKY/HEAVEN > = God (= Christ)] granted to the breaker of gold wires [GENEROUS MAN] and to his own mother a more worthy life in this world than others were able to obtain.
 í þessum heimi ‘in this world’: Bugge, Finnur Jónsson (Skj B) and Lange (1958b, 17) regard this prepositional phrase as part of the subordinate cl. an aðrir gæti ‘than others were able to obtain’; Kock (NN §3124) argues that the w.o. suggests rather that í þessum heimi forms part of the cl. at siklingr ranns sólar unni seima brjót ok móður sinni mætra líf.
