Hitt vas meir, at Mœra
morðfíkinn lét norðan
fǫr til Sogns of gǫrva.
Ýtti Freyr af fjórum
folklǫndum — sá branda
Ullr stóð af því allri
yrþjóð — Heðins byrjar.
Hitt vas meir, at morðfíkinn folkverjandi Mœra lét of gǫrva fǫr fyrva norðan til Sogns. Freyr byrjar Heðins ýtti af fjórum folklǫndum; sá Ullr branda stóð af því allri yrþjóð.
It also happened that the battle-eager people-defender of the Mœrir [NORWEGIAN RULER = Hákon jarl] had his men undertake a journey from the north to Sogn. The Freyr <god> of the wind of Heðinn <legendary hero> [BATTLE > WARRIOR] set out from four folklǫnd; that Ullr <god> of swords [WARRIOR] thereby helped the whole people.
[2, 3, 4] lét of gǫrva fǫr fyrva ‘had his men undertake a journey’: Lit. ‘had a journey of men undertaken’: Gǫrva here is f. acc. sg. of the adj. gǫrr ‘done’, agreeing with fǫr ‘journey’ and used as a p. p. ‘undertaken, made’ (see Konráð Gíslason 1895-7, I, 139; LP: gǫrr 2; NN §3213). —  fyrva ‘his men’: A less common derivative of fjǫr ‘life’ which, along with fjǫrvar and the more common forms fyrðar and firar, means ‘the living’ (AEW: firar, fyrvar).
