Sigv ErfÓl 22I/5 — Frægr ‘Renowned’

Sumir trúðu á goð gumnar;
grein varð liðs á miðli;
folkorrostur fylkir
framráðr tjogu háði.
Frægr bað hann á hœgri
hǫnd kristit lið standa;
feðr Magnúss biðk fagna
flóttskjǫrrum goð dróttin.

Sumir gumnar trúðu á goð; varð grein á miðli liðs; framráðr fylkir háði tjogu folkorrostur. Frægr bað hann kristit lið standa á hœgri hǫnd; biðk goð dróttin fagna flóttskjǫrrum feðr Magnúss.

Some men believed in God; there was a division among the troop; the ambitious leader waged twenty major battles. Renowned, he asked the Christian troop to stand at [his] right hand; I pray the Lord God to welcome the flight-shy father of Magnús [= Óláfr].
