FriðÞ Lv 9VIII (Frið 11)/8 — bjargar ‘bjǫrg’

Sat ek á bólstri         í Baldrshaga;
kvað, hvat ek kunna,         fyr konungs dóttur.
Nú skal Ránar         raunbeð troða,
en annarr mun         Ingibjargar.

Ek sat á bólstri í Baldrshaga; kvað, hvat ek kunna, fyr dóttur konungs. Nú skal troða raunbeð Ránar, en annarr mun Ingibjargar.

I sat on a cushion in Baldrshagi; I recited what I knew before the daughter of the king. Now I must tread the testing bed of Rán <sea-goddess> [SEA], but another will [tread the bed] of Ingibjǫrg.
