Line 51

'þonne maga gemynd mod geondhweorfeð' - This phrase could be construed either as 'whenever the memory of kinsmen passes through his mind . . .' or as 'whenever the mind passes through its memories of kinsmen . . .' (gemynd is singular, but the plural translation gives a better modern English idiom). For fuller discussion, see Dunning and Bliss 1969, pp. 21-22.
