Þhorn Harkv 19I/4 — ráða ‘possess’

‘Á gerðum sér þeira         ok á gollbaugum,
        at þeir eru í kunnleikum við konung:
feldum ráða þeir rauðum,         fôðum rǫndum,
sverðum silfrvǫfðum,         serkjum hringofnum,
gyltum andfetlum         ok grǫfnum hjǫlmum,
hringum handbærum,         es þeim Haraldr valði.’

‘Sér á gerðum þeira ok á gollbaugum, at þeir eru í kunnleikum við konung: þeir ráða rauðum feldum, fôðum rǫndum, sverðum silfrvǫfðum, serkjum hringofnum, gyltum andfetlum ok grǫfnum hjǫlmum, hringum handbærum, es Haraldr valði þeim.’

‘One sees from their gear, and from their gold rings, that they are on friendly terms with the king: they possess red cloaks, painted shields, swords wrapped with silver [wires], mail-shirts woven with rings, gilded sword-straps and engraved helmets, rings, which Haraldr chose for them’.
