Arn Hryn 7II/4 — skeiðar ‘of the warship’s’

Ungan frák þik, eyðir, þrøngva,
ulfa gráðar, þeira ráði;
skildir stǫkk með skœðan þokka
skeiðar brands fyr þér ór landi.

Eyðir gráðar ulfa, frák þik ungan þrøngva ráði þeira; skildir brands skeiðar stǫkk fyr þér með skœðan þokka ór landi.

Queller of the greed [FEEDER] of wolves [WARRIOR] I have heard that you, when young, constrained their course; the shield-provider of the warship’s prow [SEA-WARRIOR = Sveinn Álfífuson] bolted before you, with baleful thought, from the land.
