EValg Lv 1I/4 — rjóða ‘to redden’

Selit maðr vápn við verði;
verðr dynr, ef má, sverða;
verðum Hropts at herða
hljóð; eigum slǫg rjóða.
Vér skulum Gorms af gǫmlu
Gandvíkr þokulandi
— hǫrð, es vôn, at verði
vápnhríð — sonar bíða.

Selit maðr vápn við verði; dynr sverða verðr, ef má; verðum at herða hljóð Hropts; eigum rjóða slǫg. Vér skulum bíða sonar Gorms af gǫmlu þokulandi Gandvíkr; es vôn, at verði hǫrð vápnhríð.

May no man sell his weapon for a price; a tumult of swords [BATTLE] will come about if it can; we must vigorously pursue the noise of Hroptr <= Óðinn> [BATTLE]; we have to redden weapons. We must wait for the son of Gormr [= Haraldr] from the ancient mist-land of Gandvík; there is expectation that a harsh weapon-storm [BATTLE] will come about.
