The lord is allotted honour; the gift is made good; {the amber of the grip} [GOLD] accustoms itself greatly to men; {the necklace-distributor} [GENEROUS MAN] caused manly virtues to be displayed. {The ruler of swords} [WARRIOR] seldom makes peace with the great quantity {of the elaborate pyre of the ocean} [GOLD]; freeholders wear {cool fires {of the falcon-land}} [ARM > GOLD].
