Anon Brúðv 24VII/2 — gietið ‘told’

Byskupsttu fund fljótt
ferðir, sem gietið verðr,
með blíðum brynmeiðs
bjóði, hvie þar fór,
því að væntu vinir brátt
vígtungls boða ungs,
að bætir vel vitr
vansa snyri skapi hans.

Ferðir sóttu fund byskups fljótt með blíðum bjóði brynmeiðs, sem verðr gietið hvie þar fór, því að vinir ungs boða vígtungls væntu að vel vitr bætir vansa snyri brátt skapi hans.

The crowds quickly sought a meeting with the bishop along with the kind offerer of the byrnie-stick [SWORD > WARRIOR], as will be told, how that turned out there, because the friends of the young messenger of the battle-moon [SHIELD > WARRIOR] expected that the amply wise amender of disgrace [BISHOP] would soon change his [the young man’s] mind.
