Dele. The passage given here is in full: Israéla éðelweardas lufan lífwelan þenden hié lét metod. It may be noted that Israéla occurs 12 times in this poem, but only in this instance does it seem to form a half line. A word seems missing, and it might be suggested by 43l. þær Israéla ǽhta wǽron, and the line might read: Áhton Israela, &c. Cf. too eorlas Israéla for a similar half line.
