Ótt Knútdr 9I/1 — Bjóðr ‘giver’

Bjóðr, vannt brynjur rauðar,
blíðr stórgjafa, síðan
— lætr ǫnd, áðr þrek þrjóti
þinn — fyr Norðvík innan.

Blíðr bjóðr stórgjafa, vannt síðan brynjur rauðar fyr innan Norðvík; lætr ǫnd, áðr þrek þinn þrjóti.

Gracious giver of great gifts [GENEROUS MAN], you afterwards made mail-shirts red inland from Norwich; you will give up your spirit [die] before your strength fails.


[1] Bjóðr: bjóð 20dˣ



case: nom.
