Glúmr Gráf 9I/3 — fyrðum ‘against men’

Heinþynntan lét hvína
hrynjeld at þat brynju
foldar vǫrðr, sás fyrðum,
fjǫrnharðan, sik varði.

Vǫrðr foldar, sás varði sik fyrðum, lét heinþynntan, fjǫrnharðan hrynjeld brynju hvína at þat.

The guardian of the land [RULER], who defended himself against men, made the whetstone-sharpened, amazingly hard resounding fire of the mail-shirt [SWORD] whistle at that.


[3] fyrðum: firðum FskBˣ, forðum FskAˣ
