Anon Hsv 101VII/2 — ráða ‘have command’

Liðs skal biðja,        þá er ráða lögskilum,
        ef maðr er lýtum loginn;
röngu verz,        ef réttu náir,
        maðr, sá er dómendr duga.

Ef maðr er loginn lýtum, skal biðja liðs, þá er ráða lögskilum; maðr, sá er dómendr duga, verz röngu, ef náir réttu.

If a man is unjustly accused of faults, he must ask for help from those who have command of legal procedure; a man whom the judges help, defends himself against something wrong, if he gets his rights.
