Varðir, Hǫrða
hvatr fylkir, at
grǫf góðra lof*

Á skínn æva
Yggs fjǫldyggra
sól svangœli,
siklingr, an þik.

{Hvatr fylkir Hǫrða}, varðir, at grǫf góðra kviksettra geti lof*. Sól skínn æva á {{fjǫldyggra Yggs svan}gœli} an þik, siklingr.
 
‘Swift ruler of the Hǫrðar [NORWEGIAN KING = Sigurðr], may you ensure that the grave of the good holy ones obtains glory. The sun will never shine upon a more virtuous pleaser of Yggr’s <= Óðinn’s> swan [(lit. ‘Yggr’s swan-pleaser’) RAVEN/EAGLE > WARRIOR] than you, lord.

notes and context

In Palestine, Sigurðr gave treasures to the Holy Sepulchre and to other holy places.

[1-4]: One must resort to emendations in the first helmingr because the readings of both mss make little sense and are unmetrical as well.
