Anon (ÓT) 3I/8 — þér ‘you’

Leika barðs á borði
byrhreins fyr þér einum
— gramr mun á foldu fremri
fár — sex tigir ára.
Mér leikr einn ok annarr
ǫldu sveipr í greipum
(því verðk) borðs á barða
(bæginn fyr þér vægja).

Sex tigir ára leika á borði byrhreins barðs fyr þér einum; fár gramr á foldu mun fremri. Einn ok annarr sveipr ǫldu leikr í greipum mér á barða borðs; því verðk, bæginn, fyr þér vægja.

Sixty oars swing on the gunwale of the breeze-reindeer of the stem [SHIP], for you alone; few rulers on earth can be more outstanding. One and another sweeper of the wave [OAR] plays in my grip on the whale of the gunwale [SHIP]; therefore I must, though combative, yield to you.
