SnSt Ht 11III/6 — afar

Ýskelfir kann úlfum
auðmildr búa gildi;
lætr gylðis kyn gáti
gunnsnarr una harri.
Fær gotna vinr vitni
valbjór afar stóran;
vargr tér ór ben bergja
blóðdrykk ok grǫn rjóða.

Auðmildr ýskelfir kann búa úlfum gildi; gunnsnarr harri lætr kyn gylðis una gáti. Vinr gotna fær vitni afar stóran valbjór; vargr tér bergja blóðdrykk ór ben ok rjóða grǫn.

The wealth-generous shaker of the yew-bow [WARRIOR] can prepare a banquet for the wolves; the battle-swift lord makes the wolf’s kin rejoice in the food. The friend of men [RULER = Hákon] gives the wolf abundant corpse-beer [BLOOD]; the wolf tastes blood-drink from a wound and reddens its whiskers.
