Sturl Hákkv 11II/3 — hirð ‘retinue’

Lagði rösk,
en risu laukar,
hilmis hirð
hendr at reipum,
en húnskriptr
hreggi blásnar
fylkis ferð
til frama greiddu.

Rösk hirð hilmis lagði hendr at reipum, en laukar risu, en hreggi blásnar húnskriptr greiddu ferð fylkis til frama.

The daring retinue of the ruler put their hands on the ropes, and the masts rose up, and the storm-swept decorated cloth of the mast-top [SAIL] made the journey of the sovereign a success.


[3] hirð: so 81a, 8, Flat, om. E, ferð F
