ÞjóðA Frag 5II/3 — hreins ‘of the pure’

Útan bindr við enda
elgvers glǫðuðr hersa
hreins við húfi rónum
hafs botni far gotna.

Glǫðuðr hersa bindr far gotna útan við enda hreins elgvers við botni hafs, rónum húfi.

The gladdener of hersar [RULER] ties up the vessel of men out at the edge of the pure elk-sea [LAND], by the inlet of the ocean, rowed by the hull.


[3] hreins: hrein W
