      Björn var úti þrjú dægur í hellinum áður upp létti hríðinni en þá kom hann af heiðinni hið fjórða dægrið og kom þá heim til Kambs.

      Bjorn was outside three days in the cave before the snowstorm abated, and then he came from the district on the fourth day and then came home to Kamb.



      Hann var þrekaður mjög.

      He was very exhausted.



      Spurðu heimamenn hann hvar hann hefði verið um veðrin.

      The house servants asked him where he had been during the (bad) weather.



      Björn kvað:

      Bjorn said:


      Spurðust vor und vörðum
      Was learned spring (?) under a pile of stones

      verk Styrbjarnar merkjum.
      Styrbjarn's work of distinction.


      Járnfaldinn hlóð öldum
      The iron hood built ages


      Eirekr í dyn geira.
      Eirekr makes in noise.


      Nú trað eg hauðr of heiði
      I now trod earth over bright sky


      hundvillr því fat eg illa
      utterly lost I stepped poorly


      víða braut í votri
      far and wide away in wet (?)


      vífs görninga drífu.

      Woman's deeds drove (as snow)



      Björn var nú heima um veturinn.

      Bjorn now stayed home during the winter.



      Um vorið gerði Arnbjörn bróðir hans bú á Bakka í Hraunhöfn en Björn bjó að Kambi og hafði rausnarbú mikið.

      During the spring, his brother Arnbjorn built a residence at Bakka in Hraunhofn, but Bjorn lived at Kambi and had very great estate.


      41. kafli

      Vor þetta hið sama á Þórsnessþingi hóf Þorleifur kimbi bónorð sitt og bað Helgu Þorláksdóttur á Eyri, systur Steinþórs á Eyri, og gekk mest með þessu Þormóður bróðir hennar.

      This same spring at Thorness's Assembly, Thorleifr kimbi started his courtship and asked (for the hand in marriage of) Helga, Thorlak's daughter in Eyri, a sister of Steinthor's in Eyri, and her brother Thormodur went most with this.



      Hann átti Þorgerði Þorbrandsdóttur, systur Þorleifs kimba.

      He married Thorgerd, Thorbrand's daughter, a sister of Thorleifr kimba.
