Arn Þorfdr 11II/1 — ból ‘Dwellings’

Týndusk ból, þás brenndi
— bráskat þat dœgr háski —
— stǫkk í reyr in roknu
rauðr eldr — Skotaveldi.
Morðkennir galt mǫnnum
mein; á sumri einu
fengu þeir við þengil
þrimr sinnum hlut minna.

Ból týndusk, þás brenndi Skotaveldi; rauðr eldr stǫkk í in roknu reyr; þat dœgr bráskat háski. Morðkennir galt mǫnnum mein; á einu sumri fengu þeir þrimr sinnum minna hlut við þengil.

Dwellings perished, as he burned the Scots’ realm; red fire leapt in the smoking thatch; that day peril did not cease. The battle-master [WARRIOR] paid men for their injuries; in a single summer they got three times over the poorer deal from the ruler.
