Sturl Hryn 17II/7 — ræsir ‘ruler’

Renna þótti upp á unnum
alla leið af flota breiðum
hilmis frægs, þar er herskip lágu,
himna eldr í Danaveldi.
Þengill kom þar annarr engi
innanlands, svát dæmi finniz,
ræsir, stýrðuð rétt til jarðar,
ríkilátr — með afla slíkan.

Eldr himna þótti renna upp af breiðum flota frægs hilmis á unnum alla leið í Danaveldi, þar er herskip lágu. Engi annarr þengill kom þar innanlands með slíkan afla, svát dæmi finniz; ríkilátr ræsir, stýrðuð rétt til jarðar.

The fire of the heavens [SUN] seemed to be rising up from the broad fleet of the famous ruler on the waves all the way to the realm of the Danes, where warships lay. No other prince came within the land there with such a force, to the extent that there are examples; high-minded ruler, you steered straight for the shore.
