Anon Mv I 4VII/4 — vel ‘well’

Áðr var eiginbrúðar
andaðr í því landi
(átti hun eina dóttur)
unnandi (vel kunna).
Hennar bað með heiðri
heiðursmaðr, og greiðiz
mundrinn; fyldiz frændum
frægð, en tókuz mægðir.

Áðr var unnandi eiginbrúðar andaðr í því landi; hun átti eina dóttur, vel kunna. Heiðursmaðr bað hennar með heiðri, og mundrinn greiðiz; frægð fyldiz frændum, en mægðir tókuz.

Earlier the husband [lit. lover] of the wife had died in that land; she had one daughter, well accomplished. A man of honour asked for her hand with honour, and the dowry is paid; fame was achieved for the relatives, and the kinship by marriage was established.
