      Eftir það tók Björn vopn sín og gekk í brott og ætlar heim. En er hann kom
      upp um Digramúla
      After that Bjorn picked up his weapon and went away and intended (to go)
      home. But when he came up around Digramul

      hljópu upp fyrir honum fimm menn. Þar var Þóroddur, húskarlar hans tveir og
      synir Þóris
      five men leaped up before him. There were Thorodd, his two house servants
      and sons of Thorir

      viðleggs. Þeir veittu Birni atgöngu en hann varðist vel og drengilega. Gengu
      þeir fastast að
      woodenleg. They gave Bjorn an attack but he defended himself well and
      manfully. Those
      Thorir’s sons went at him hardest.

      Þórissynir. Þeir veittu honum áverka en hann varð banamaður beggja þeirra.
      They gave him a wound but he became the death-dealer to both of them.

      Eftir það leitaði Þóroddur undan með húskarla sína og var sár lítt en þeir
      ekki.
      After that Thorodd tried for (him) with his house servants and was lightly
      wounded but they (were) not.

      Björn gekk leið sína þar til er hann kom heim og gekk til stofu og bað
      húsfreyja griðkonu að
      Bjorn went on his way until he came home and went to the room and the
      house-wife asked the servant woman to

      vinna honum beina. Og er hún kom í stofu með ljós þá sá hún að Björn var
      blóðugur mjög. Gekk
      make him comfortable. And when she came into the room with a light, then
      she saw that Bjorn was very bloody.

      hún þá fram og sagði Ásbrandi föður hans að Björn var blóðugur heim kominn.
      Gekk Ásbrandur
      She went forward then and told Asbrand, his father, that Bjorn had come home
      bloody. Asbrand went

      í stofu og spurði hann hví Björn var blóðugur "eða hafið þið Þóroddur
      fundist?"
      into the room he and asked Bjorn why (he) was bloody “or have you met
      Thorodd?”

      Björn svarar og segir að svo var. Ásbrandur spurði hversu farið hefðu
      viðskipti þeirra. Björn kvað:
      Bjorn answers and says it was so. Asbrand asked how it had gone with their
      dealings. Bjorn said:

      Munat hyrlesti hraustum
      It will not (be) a hearty? brightening? at last?

      hríðar mér að stríða,
      at once, to harm me,

      heldr hef eg vígi valdið
      rather have I chosen slaying

      Viðleggs sona tveggja,
      Woodenleg’s two sons

      sem vígbalkar válki
      as slaying -?? (went?) tossed to and fro

      valdr geymi-Bil falda
      guilty watchful ?? fold

      eða dalsveigi deigum
      or cowardly dale-headdress? (fold)

      Draupnis skatt að kaupa.
      to exchange Draupnis? tax.

      Síðan batt Ásbrandur sár hans og varð hann græddur að heilu.
      Then Asbrand bound his wound and he became cured to health.

      Þóroddur sótti Snorra goða að eftirmáli um víg Þórissona og lét Snorri búa
      mál til Þórsnessþings
      Thorodd sought Chieftain Snorri for an action on behalf of Thorir’s sons’
      slaying and Snorri had a case prepared for the Thorsness Thing

      en synir Þorláks á Eyri veittu Breiðvíkingum að málum þessum. Og urðu þær
      málalyktir að
      but Thorlak’s sons at Eyr gave the Breidvikings (support) in this case. And
      the conclusion of the case happened that

      Ásbrandur gekk til handsala fyrir Björn son sinn og hélt upp fébótum fyrir
      vígin en Björn var
      Asbrand went to shake hands for Bjorn, his son, and supported the offering
      of money for the slaying, but Bjorn was

      sekur ger utan um þrjá vetur og fór hann í brott samsumars.
      made an outlaw abroad for three winters and he went away the same summer.
