Anon (Vǫlsa) 10I/8 — gríp ‘grab’

Legit hefik víða         fyrir andnesjum,
snæfgum hǫndum         segl upp dregit.
Þiggi Maurnir         þetta blæti!
En þú, Grímr, griði minn,         gríp þú við Vǫlsa!

Hefik legit víða fyrir andnesjum, dregit upp segl snæfgum hǫndum. Þiggi Maurnir þetta blæti! En þú, Grímr, griði minn, gríp þú við Vǫlsa!

I have lain off headlands far and wide, hoisted the sail with vigorous hands. May Maurnir receive this offering! But you, Grímr, my companion, you grab Vǫlsi!
