"Satt er þat", segir hann.King Asks," Is it true as he says" "True it is" says heThe King asked "Is it true as he says" "It is true" he replied.Konungr mælti: "Ok þótti þér þat til liggja, þar sem ik settak þik mikinn mann,"And seemed to thee it is good?fair where-as I made thee a great man""And do you deem it just; because I made you a great manat hepta þat eða tálma, er maðr gørðisk til at foera mér gørsimito hinder or prevent this man (doing) this? to bring to me a treasureTo hinder or prevent this man from bringing me a treasureok gaf fyrir alla eign?and gif (for it) all that he ownedgiving all he possessed for it."Ok sá þat Haraldr konungr at ráði at láta hann fara í friði, ok er hann várr óvinr.And that Harald King in counsel (at lata) him travel (free) and he is enemyAnd King Harald thought it right to let him be free to go and He (Harald) is our enemyHygg þú at þá, hvé sannligt þat var þinnar handar!Think thou then how truly this was at thy handDo you think your actions were just (fair or true) I think Sweinn questions Aki's HonestyOk þat væri makligt, at þú værir drepinn;And that should be fitting as thou shouldst be slainyou should be killed for what you diden ek mun nú eigi þat gøra,but I will now not that to dobut I shall not do that nowen braut skaltu fara þegar ór landinu, ok koma aldri aptr síðan mér í augsýn."but away shalt thou travel at once from (?these lands) and come all time after in future to me the sightbut, you shall go now away from my Kingdom and for ever in the future, I shall not see you( this might better be rendered as =Go away now at once, and keep out of my sight, for ever.)I was hoping King Sweinn would be mad at Aki, because his actions had been disloyal, if he had helped Auðun he could have let Sweinn know and been rewardedIMnsHOPatricia----- Original Message -----From: Sarah BowenSent: Saturday, January 29, 2005 10:32 AMSubject: [norse_course] Auðun part 10Aki gets his come-uppance.Konungr mælti: "Er þat satt, Áki, er hann segir?"
