njal remained silent


Njal remained silent while Gunnar told him everything. Then he spoke: ‘You must not let her have her way in everything.’

Gunnar said, ‘You make the judgement yourself.’

Njal said, ‘It’s going to be hard for you to atone for all of Hallgerd’s misdoings, and another time the effects will be greater than now, where just the two of us are involved–though this matter itself is far short of going well– and you and I will have to keep in mind the good things we’ve been saying to each other for a long time. I expect that you will do well, but you will be tested hard.’
