      I couldn't make anything of the verse.
      Grace

      Geirríður svarar: "Segið þér víg Þorbjarnar?"
      Gerrid answers, “Are you speaking of Thorbjorn’s slaying?”

      Þórarinn kvað:
      Thorarinn recited:

      Knátti hjör und hetti,
      ?? sword swung cape?

      hræflóð, bragar Móða,
      ?????????????????

      rauk um sóknar sæki,
      reeked regarding prosecution?

      slíðrbeittr staðar leita.
      sharp as a razor a place to seek.

      Blóð féll, en var voði
      Blood fell, but was ??

      vígtjalds náar skaldi,
      overtake the tent of the slain ?

      þá var dæmisalr dóma
      then was all judgment of court

      dreyrafullr, um eyru.
      full of oozing blood about the ears.

      "Tekið hefir þá brýningin," sagði Geirríður, "og gangið inn og bindið sár
      yður." Og svo var.
      “Incitement has (over?) taken them,” said Geirrid, “and (you) go inside and
      bind your wounds.” And so it was.

      Nú er að segja frá Oddi Kötlusyni. Hann fór þar til er hann kom til Fróðár
      og sagði þar tíðindin.
      Now we tell of Odd Katla’s son. He went until he came to Frod and told the
      news there.

      Lét Þuríður húsfreyja safna þá mönnum og fara eftir líkunum en flytja heim
      sára menn. Þorbjörn
      Mistress Thurid let those men sleep and went after the bodies and brought
      the wounded men home. Thorbjorn

      var í haug lagður en Hallsteinn sonur hans var græddur. Þórir af Arnarhvoli
      var og græddur og
      was laid in a howe and Hallstein, his son, was healed. Thorir of Arnarhvoll
      was also healed and

      gekk við tréfót síðan. Því var hann kallaður Þórir viðleggur. Hann átti
      Þorgrímu galdrakinn.
      walked with a wooden leg after that. For that reason he was called Thorir
      woodenleg. He married Thorgrim driven by magic?

      Þeirra synir voru þeir Örn og Valur, drengilegir menn.
      Their sons were they, Orn and Val, brave men.

      19. kafli
      Eina nótt var Þórarinn heima í Mávahlíð. En um morguninn spyr Auður Þórarinn
      hvert ráð hann
      One night Thorarinn was at home in Mavahlid. And during the morning, Aud
      asks Thorarinn what plan he

      ætlar fyrir sér "vildum vér eigi úthýsa þér," segir hún, "en hrædd er eg að
      hér séu fleiri settir
      intended for himself, “we will not (send) you to an outlying house,” says
      she, “ but I fear that here will take place more

      dyradómarnir í vetur því að eg veit að Snorri goði mun ætla að mæla eftir
      Þorbjörn mág sinn."
      door courts in winter because I know that Priest Snorri will expect to take
      up the prosecution after Thorbjorn, his in-law.”
