Sturl Hákkv 28II/6 — stríða ‘torments’

Þar gullker
geiga knáttu
inni full
unna greipum,
en inndrótt
allra stríða
heilivágr
til hjarta fell.

Þar inni knáttu full gullker geiga, unna greipum, en heilivágr allra stríða fell inndrótt til hjarta.

Inside there full gold-goblets swung, caressed the hands, and the soothing balm of all torments [WINE/ALE] penetrated the hearts of the retinue.

readings

[6] stríða: so 8, Flat, manna E, F, 42ˣ, om. 81a

notes

[6] allra stríða ‘of all torments’: So 8, Flat. The variant allra manna ‘of all men’ (so E, F, 42ˣ) leaves the kenning without a determinant and looks like a lectio facilior.
