Þstf Stuttdr 3II/6 — hvar ‘everywhere’

Óðu at Engla
ættjǫrðu bǫrð
skaplig skipa
skafin vestr of haf.
Þótti Þrœnda
þarlands sem hvar
yfirmaðr jǫfurr
alls herjar snjallr.

Skaplig skafin bǫrð skipa óðu vestr of haf at ættjǫrðu Engla. Snjallr jǫfurr Þrœnda þótti yfirmaðr alls herjar þarlands sem hvar.

The shapely planed prows of the ships advanced west across the ocean to the ancestral land of the English. The courageous prince of the Þrœndir [NORWEGIAN KING = Sigurðr] seemed superior to everyone else there as everywhere.

notes

[6] þarlands sem hvar ‘there as everywhere’: See Slembir Lv 1/8.
