Bjbp Jóms 37I/3 — af ‘from’

Nam eldbroti Yggjar
ýgr fyr borð at stíga;
út bar hann af húfum
hraustr Goll-Búi kistur.
Ok optliga eptir
óblauðir þar síðan
kneigu lýðir líta
langan orm á hringum.

Ýgr Yggjar eldbroti nam at stíga fyr borð; hann, hraustr Goll-Búi, bar út kistur af húfum. Ok optliga síðan eptir kneigu óblauðir lýðir þar líta langan orm á hringum.

The fierce breaker of the flame of Yggr <= Óðinn> [(lit. ‘flame-breaker of Yggr’) SWORD > WARRIOR = Búi] stepped overboard; he, bold Gull-Búi (‘Gold-Búi’), carried out chests from the hull. And often since then dauntless men have been able to see there a long serpent on the rings.
