Kálf Kátr 32VII/4 — sáran ‘painful’

Kátrín gjörðiz hress af heitum
hildings þess, er veitir mildi;
bæði girntiz bauga tróða
beiska nauð og sáran dauða.
Siklingr bauð til sín að leiða
sæta ambátt veraldar gætis;
bjartur skein, sem brynni af kerti,
bauga þellu geisli af augum.

Kátrín gjörðiz hress af heitum hildings þess, er veitir mildi; tróða bauga girntiz bæði beiska nauð og sáran dauða. Siklingr bauð sæta ambátt gætis veraldar að leiða til sín; bjartur geisli skein af augum þellu bauga, sem af kerti brynni.

Catherine became cheerful from the promises of the prince, who grants mercy; the stick of rings [WOMAN] desired both dire suffering and a painful death. The prince requested the sweet handmaid of the guardian of the world [= God > HOLY WOMAN] be brought before him; a bright ray shone from the eyes of the young pine of rings [WOMAN] as if a candle was burning.
