Þjóð Har 3I/5 — bjartar ‘bright’

Gaf gǫrpum sínum         goll it rauða
hilmir hróðigr         ok hringa marga,
brynjur bjartar         ok branda hvassa,
skjǫldu skyggða         ok skrautbúna.

Hróðigr hilmir gaf gǫrpum sínum it rauða goll ok marga hringa, bjartar brynjur ok hvassa branda, skyggða ok skrautbúna skjǫldu.

The glorious ruler gave his champions red gold and many rings, bright mail-shirts and keen blades, shining and richly-decorated shields.
