Ív Sig 44II/2 — meðan ‘while’

Sǫng saltara,        meðan Sigurð pínðu
jǫfurs óvinir,        ýta dróttinn.
Bað fyr brǫgnum        bǫðfrœkn jǫfurr,
þeims vellskata        veittu píslir.

Dróttinn ýta sǫng saltara, meðan óvinir jǫfurs pínðu Sigurð. Bǫðfrœkn jǫfurr bað fyr brǫgnum, þeims veittu vellskata píslir.

The lord of men [KING = Sigurðr] sang the psalter while the prince’s enemies tortured Sigurðr. The battle-brave prince prayed for the men who inflicted torments upon the generous chieftain.
