Arn Hardr 2II/2 — rauð ‘he reddened’

Hjalmôru lét heyra,
hizis rauð fyr Nizi,
tyggi, tyrfings eggjar
tvær, áðr mannfall væri.
Naðrs borð skriðu norðan
nýs at allvalds fýsi;
hlaut til Hallands skjóta
hrafnþarfr konungr stafni.

Tyggi lét hjalmôru heyra, [e]s rauð tvær eggjar tyrfings hizi fyr Nizi, áðr mannfall væri. Borð nýs naðrs skriðu norðan at fýsi allvalds; hrafnþarfr konungr hlaut skjóta stafni til Hallands.

The sovereign made helmet-envoys [WARRIORS] hear that he reddened the two edges of the sword there by the Nissan, before slaughter of men came about. The bulwarks of the new serpent [ship] slid from the north at the desire of the mighty ruler; lavish to ravens, the king got to speed his prow to Halland.
