Þjsk Hák 2I/3 — rautt ‘reddened’

Hǫfðum í þér, Hôkun,
es at hjǫrrógi drógumk,
— þú rautt Skǫglar skýja
skóð — forvistu góða.

Hǫfðum góða forvistu í þér, Hôkun, es drógumk at hjǫrrógi; þú rautt skóð skýja Skǫglar.

We had a fine leader in you, Hákon, when we advanced to the sword-strife [BATTLE]; you reddened the harmer of the clouds of Skǫgul <valkyrie> [SHIELDS > SWORD].
