Anon Pl 41VII/2 — odd ‘of the spear’

Bôru orð*, ok urðu,
oddregns hvat*endr, fegnir,
heiðins grams af hljóði,
hjǫrva lund es fundu.
Hodda Baldr til hildar
hugfylldr koma skyldi
alla tígn ok eignask,
endr þás lét af hendi.

Hvat*endr oddregns bôru orð* heiðins grams af hljóði ok urðu fegnir, es fundu lund hjǫrva. Hugfylldr Baldr hodda skyldi koma til hildar ok eignask alla tígn, þás lét endr af hendi.

The inciters of the spear-rain [BATTLE > WARRIORS] carried the word of the heathen king in secret and became glad when they found the tree of swords [WARRIOR]. The courage-filled Baldr <god> of hoards [MAN] was to come to the battle and regain all the honour which he had previously abandoned.


[2] oddregns: ‘odd[...](e)gns’(?) 673b, ‘oddregns’ 673bÞH, 673bFJ
