Eskál Vell 37I/2 — ræðr ‘control’

Þvít fjǫlkostigr flestu
flestr ræðr við son Bestlu
— tekit hefk morðs til mærðar —
mæringr an þú færa.

Þvít flestr fjǫlkostigr mæringr ræðr flestu færa an þú við son Bestlu; hefk tekit til mærðar morðs.

For most many-virtued famous men control much less than you with the son of Bestla <giantess> [= Óðinn]; I have begun the praise of the battle.


[2] ræðr: ráðr B
