Glúmr Gráf 12I/5 — veitk ‘I know’

Fellumk hǫlf, þás hilmis
hjǫrdrífa brá lífi,
(réðat oss til auðar)
auðvôn (Haralds dauði).
En veitk, at hefr heitit
hans bróðir mér góðu
— sjá getr þar til sælu
seggfjǫlð — hvaðarrtveggi.

Hǫlf auðvôn fellumk, þás hjǫrdrífa brá lífi hilmis; dauði Haralds réðat oss til auðar. En veitk, at hvaðarrtveggi bróðir hans hefr heitit mér góðu; seggfjǫlð getr sjá þar til sælu.

Half my expectation of wealth fell from me when the sword-blizzard [BATTLE] ended the life of the ruler; Haraldr’s death did not bring about wealth for us [me]. But I know that both of his brothers have promised me good things; a multitude of men can look there for prosperity.
