Anon Brúðv 25VII/5 — eigi ‘not’

Byskup frietti brimlogs
að því meginbrátt:
‘Hví ertu, hlynr, svá
hverforðr, góins láðs?’
Seggr liet eigi seinn að
svara, því er spurt var:
‘Einglum er sú drós, dreingr,
dýrri, er eg gat fyrr’.

Byskup frietti brimlogs að því meginbrátt: ‘Hví ertu svá hverforðr, hlynr láðs góins?’ Seggr liet eigi seinn að svara, því er spurt var: ‘Sú drós, er eg gat fyrr, dreingr, er dýrri einglum’.

The bishop asked the surf-flame [GOLD > ?] about it very soon: ‘Why are you so fickle in words, maple of the land of the snake [GOLD > MAN]?’ The man was not slow in answering what was asked: ‘The lady whom I mentioned before, sir, is more precious than angels’.
