Bragningr réð í blóði
— beið herr konungs reiði —
— hús lutu opt fyr eisum —
óþjóðar slǫg rjóða.

Bragningr réð rjóða slǫg í blóði óþjóðar; herr beið reiði konungs; hús lutu opt fyr eisum.

The ruler reddened weapons in the blood of evil people; the army suffered the king’s anger; houses often collapsed because of fires.


[1] réð í blóði: ‘[…]’ B, réð blóði 744ˣ;    réð: rauð U, C, ‘ręð’ A


[1] réð: An auxiliary to inf. rjóða (l. 4), hence réð rjóða ‘reddened’.
