Réð gunnstara gildi
Gauts mútari drekka,
þvít morðhauka milsku
Muninn kunni sér nýta.
Ǫl vas ógnar gagla
ótrautt gefit hrafni;
réð ylgjar mjǫð erni
ógndjarfr konungr veita.

{Mútari Gauts} réð drekka {gildi {gunnstara}}, þvít Muninn kunni nýta sér {milsku {morðhauka}}. {Ǫl {gagla ógnar}} vas ótrautt gefit hrafni; ógndjarfr konungr réð veita erni {mjǫð ylgjar}.

{The hawk of Gautr <= Óðinn>} [RAVEN/EAGLE] drank {the banquet {of the battle-starling}} [RAVEN > BLOOD], because Muninn <raven> knew how to avail itself {of the brew {of battle-hawks}} [RAVENS/EAGLES > BLOOD]. {Ale {of goslings of battle}} [RAVENS/EAGLES > BLOOD] was unstintingly given to the raven; the battle-brave king gave {mead of the she-wolf} [BLOOD] to the eagle.

Mss: papp25ˣ(36r-v), R683ˣ(130v-131r)

Readings: [4] Muninn: mun papp25ˣ, R683ˣ    [8] veita: ‘veitta’ R683ˣ

Editions: Skj: Rǫgnvaldr jarl og Hallr Þórarinsson, Háttalykill 26b: AI, 522, BI, 500, Skald I, 245; Hl 1941, 27, 75.

Context: As st. 51 above.

Notes: [2] mútari ‘the hawk’: See Note to Sigv Berv 10/7II (see also st. 62/2 below). — [4] Muninn ‘Muninn <raven>’: The mss have ‘mun’ which makes no sense in the context (‘may’ (?)) and has been emended to Muninn (one of Óðinn’s ravens) with earlier eds. — [4] nýta sér ‘to avail itself’: See st. 62/1.
