Eskál Vell 2I/3 — gervi ‘give’

Nús, þats Boðnar bára
(berg-Saxa) tér vaxa
(gervi í hǫll ok hlýði
hljóð fley jǫfurs þjóðir).

Nús, þats bára Boðnar tér vaxa; þjóðir jǫfurs gervi hljóð í hǫll ok hlýði fley berg-Saxa.

Now it happens that the wave of Boðn <mythical vat> [POEM] grows; may the retinue of the ruler give a hearing in the hall and listen to the ship (líð ‘ale’) of the rock-Saxons [GIANTS > POEM].
