heiðna ‘the heathen’

heiðinn (adj.): heathen

[1] heiðna: eina Hr

tókt ‘you captured’

2. taka (verb): take

[1] tókt: þátt F, H, Hr, tók E, J2ˣ, 42ˣ, vann FskAˣ

notes

[1] tókt ‘you captured’: Þátt ‘you received’ (so F, H, Hr) is also a possible reading, and it probably represents the reading of Mork which has a lacuna at this point (the text in Andersson and Gade 2000 has been supplied from F). Vann (3rd pers. sg. pret. indic.) ‘won’ (so FskAˣ) requires that bræðir tíkr benja ‘feeder of the bitch of wounds’ (ll. 1-2) be taken as the subject of the cl. rather than as a form of address.
