Rv Lv 31II/2 — af ‘from’

Ríðum Ræfils Vakri!
Rekuma plóg af akri!
Erjum úrgu barði
út at Miklagarði!
Þiggjum þengils mála!
Þokum framm í gný stála!
Rjóðum gylðis góma!
Gerum ríks konungs sóma!

Ríðum Vakri Ræfils! Rekuma plóg af akri! Erjum úrgu barði út at Miklagarði! Þiggjum mála þengils! Þokum framm í gný stála! Rjóðum góma gylðis! Gerum sóma ríks konungs!

Let’s ride the Vakr <horse> of Ræfill <sea-king> [SHIP]! Let’s not drive the plough from the field! Let’s plough with a drenched prow out to Constantinople! Let’s receive the wages of the prince! Let’s move forward in the din of weapons [BATTLE]! Let’s redden the gums of the wolf! Let’s create the honour for the powerful king!
