Arn Hryn 18II/4 — engla ‘of angels’

Mǫnnum lízk, es mildingr rennir
Meita hlíðir sævar skíði,
unnir jafnt sem ósamt renni
engla fylki himna þengils.

Mǫnnum lízk, es mildingr rennir skíði sævar hlíðir Meita, jafnt sem fylki engla þengils himna renni unnir ósamt.

It seems to men, as the ruler makes the ski of the ocean [SHIP] skim the slopes of Meiti <sea-king> [SEA], just as though the host of angels of the skies’ prince [= God] were skimming the waves with him.
