ÞSjár Þórdr 4I/3 — gerði ‘prepared’

Afreks veit, þars jǫfri
allríkr í styr slíkum
gǫndlar Njǫrðr, sás gerði,
gekk næst, Hugins drekku.

Veit afreks, þars allríkr Njǫrðr gǫndlar, sás gerði drekku Hugins, gekk næst jǫfri í slíkum styr.

It signals an exceptional deed when the all-powerful Njǫrðr <god> of battle [WARRIOR = Þórálfr], who prepared Huginn’s <raven’s> banquet [CORPSES], advanced next to the prince in such a battle.
