Ótt Hfl 15I/1 — Eigi ‘You were not’

Eigi hrædduzk ægi;
ér fóruð sæ stóran;
allvaldr of getr aldar
engi nýtri drengi.
Opt varð fars, en forsi
flaust hratt af sér brǫttum,
neytt, áðr Nóreg beittuð,
niðjungr Haralds, miðjan.

Eigi hrædduzk ægi; ér fóruð stóran sæ; engi allvaldr aldar of getr nýtri drengi. Fars varð opt neytt, en flaust hratt af sér brǫttum forsi, áðr, niðjungr Haralds, beittuð miðjan Nóreg.

You were not afraid of the ocean; you travelled across a great sea; no mighty ruler of men [RULER] gains abler warriors. The ship was often tested, and the vessel threw from itself the steep cataract, before, descendant of Haraldr [= Óláfr], you beat to the middle of Norway.
