ǪrvOdd Ævdr 2VIII (Ǫrv 72)/8 — kosti ‘at his disposal’

Var mér fóstr gefit         at föður ráði
— brátt vöndumk því —         á Berurjóðri.
Var mér ekki         vant til sælu,
þess er Ingjaldr         átti kosti.

Fóstr var gefit mér at ráði föður á Berurjóðri; vöndumk því brátt. Var mér ekki vant til sælu, þess er Ingjaldr átti kosti.

Fosterage was provided for me according to my father’s advice at Berurjóðr; we [I] quickly came to like it. I had no lack of enjoyment of that which Ingjaldr had at his disposal.
