Sigv Lv 14I/2 — dróttin ‘The lord-’

Kaup varð daprt, þars djúpan,
dróttinrækt, of sóttu,
þeir es, heim, á himnum,
hás elds, svikum belldu.

Dróttinrækt kaup varð daprt á himnum, þars of sóttu djúpan heim hás elds, þeir es belldu svikum.

The lord-rejecting bargain was dismal in the heavens, when they sought the deep world of towering flame [HELL], those who committed treason.


[2] dróttin: dróttins 321ˣ, dróttum Bb
