Sturl Hryn 7II/4 — land ‘shore’

Allvaldr, rétt, því er ýtar heldu
ógnarbráðs at fylkis láði;
prúðar náðu sveitir síðan
sóknarstrangs á land at ganga.
Stórar (létu Halland herjat
hirðmenn þínir) frelsi sínu
víða týndu virða kindir
(vægðarlaust fyrir Geitkjörr austan).

Allvaldr, rétt, því er ýtar heldu at láði ógnarbráðs fylkis; prúðar sveitir sóknarstrangs náðu síðan at ganga á land. Stórar kindir virða týndu frelsi sínu víða; hirðmenn þínir létu herjat Halland vægðarlaust fyrir austan Geitkjörr.

Mighty ruler, you caused the men to go to the land of the battle-swift leader; the brave troops of the war-fierce one then went ashore. Great sons of men lost their freedom far and wide; your retainers raided Halland without mercy east of Geitkjörr.
