Chapter 68

Egil comes out to Iceland

In the summer Egil prepared his ship, and, when all was ready, at once set sail for Iceland. His voyage sped well. He came to Borgar-firth and brought in his ship just below his own house. He had his cargo conveyed home, and set up his ship. Egil stayed in his home that winter. He had now brought out very great wealth, and was a very rich man. He had a large and lofty house. Egil was by no means meddlesome with other men's matters, nor generally presuming when here in Iceland; nor did any try to encroach on what was his. Egil remained at home now for years not a few. Egil and Asgerdr had children thus named: Bodvar a son, and another son Gunnar; Thorgerdr a daughter, and Bera. Their youngest was Thorstein. All Egil's children were of good promise and intelligence. Thorgerdr was the eldest of the children, Bera the next.

Útkoma Egils

Egill bjó skip sitt um sumarið og fór þegar hann var búinn. Hann hélt til Íslands. Honum fórst vel. Hélt hann til Borgarfjarðar og kom skipinu skammt frá bæ sínum. Lét hann flytja heim varning sinn en setti upp skipið. Var Egill vetur þann að búi sínu. Egill hafði nú út haft allmikið fé. Var hann maður stórauðigur. Hann hafði mikið bú og risulegt.

Ekki var Egill íhlutunarsamur um mál manna og ótilleitinn við flesta menn þá er hann var hér á landi. Gerðust menn og ekki til þess að sitja yfir hlut hans. Egill var þá að búi sínu svo að það skipti vetrum eigi allfám.

Egill og Ásgerður áttu börn þau er nefnd eru. Böðvar hét son þeirra, annar Gunnar, Þorgerður dóttir og Bera. Þorsteinn var yngstur. Öll voru börn Egils mannvæn og vel viti borin. Þorgerður var elst barna Egils, Bera þar næst.
