      Þorsteinn þorskabítur átti son er kallaður var Börkur digri. En sumar það er
      Þorsteinn var
      Thorstein cod-biter had a son who was called Bork the stout. And that
      summer when Thorsteinn was

      hálfþrítugur fæddi Þóra sveinbarn og var Grímur nefndur er vatni var ausinn.
      Þann svein gaf
      25 Thora gave birth to a boy child and (he) was named Grim when water was
      sprinkled. Thorsteinn dedicated that boy

      Þorsteinn Þór og kvað vera skyldu hofgoða og kallar hann Þorgrím. Það sama
      haust fór Þorsteinn út í Höskuldsey til fangs.
      to Thor and said (he) should be temple priest and call him Thorgrim. That
      same fall Thorsteinn went out fishing to Hoskuld’s isle.

      Það var eitt kveld um haustið að sauðamaður Þorsteins fór að fé fyrir norðan
      Helgafell. Hann sá
      It was one evening during the fall that Thorsteinn’s shepherd went to take
      care of the livestock from the north of Helgafell. He saw

      að fjallið laukst upp norðan. Hann sá inn í fjallið elda stóra og heyrði
      þangað mikinn glaum og
      that the mountain opened up from the north. He saw inside in the mountain a
      great fire and heard thither great noisy merriment and

      hornaskvöl. Og er hann hlýddi ef hann næmi nokkur orðaskil heyrði hann að
      þar var heilsað
      noise of horns. And when he listened if might hear any words he could
      distinguish he heard that there

      Þorsteini þorskabít og förunautum hans og mælt að hann skal sitja í öndvegi
      gegnt föður sínum.
      Thorstein cod-biter and his comrades were greeted and told that he should
      sit on the high seat across from his father.

      Þenna fyrirburð sagði sauðamaður Þóru konu Þorsteins um kveldið. Hún lét sér
      fátt um finnast
      (The) shepherd told this forboding to Thorstein’s wife, Thora, during the
      evening. She rather disliked (it)

      og kallar vera mega að þetta væri fyrirboðan stærri tíðinda.
      and says it could be that this might be foreboding of serious tidings.

      Um morguninn eftir komu menn utan úr Höskuldsey og sögðu þau tíðindi að
      Þorsteinn
      During the next morning, men came out from Hoskuld’s isle and said the news
      that Thorsteinn

      þorskabítur hafði drukknað í fiskiróðri og þótti mönnum það mikill skaði.
      cod-biter had drowned fishing and it seemed to people a great loss.

      Þóra hélt þar bú eftir og ræðst sá maður til með henni er Hallvarður hét.
      Þau áttu son er Már hét.
      Thora kept the farm thereafter and recruited that man to (work it) with her
      who was named Hallvard. They had a son called Mar.

      Synir Þorsteins þorskabíts uxu þar upp heima með móður sinni og voru hinir
      Thorsteinn cod-bter’s sons grew up there at home with their mother and were
      the

      efnilegustu menn og var Þorgrímur fyrir þeim í öllu og var þegar hofgoði er
      hann hafði aldur til.
      most promising men and Thorgrim was (outstanding) before them all and was
      immediately temple chieftain when he was old enough.

      Þorgrímur kvongaðist vestur í Dýrafjörð og fékk Þórdísar Súrsdóttur og réðst
      Thorgrim married west in Dyrafjord and got Thordis, Sur’s daughter and he
      joined

      hann þangað vestur til mága sinna, Gísla og Þorkels. Þorgrímur drap Véstein
      thither west with his in-laws, Gisla and Thorkel. Thorgrim slew Vesteinn,

      Vésteinsson að haustboði í Haukadal. En annað haust eftir þá er Þorgrímur
      Vesteinn’s son at an autumn visit in Hauka Dale. And the following fall
      then when
      Thorgrimm

      var hálfþrítugur sem faðir hans þá drap Gísli mágur hans hann að haustboði á
      was 25 as his father, then he slew Gisli, his brother in law at an autumn
      visit at

      Sæbóli. Nokkurum nóttum síðar fæddi Þórdís kona hans barn og var sá sveinn
      Saeboli. Some nights later Thordis his wife, gave birth to his child and
      that was a boy

      kallaður Þorgrímur eftir föður sínum.
      called Thorgrim after his father.
