Anon Leið 11VII/5 — Gefa ‘he will give’

Fárskerðir býðr fyrðum
friðkunnan dag sunnu
ýtum hollr of allan
aldr dýrliga at halda.
Gefa kvezk mætr í móti
meinhrjóðandi þjóðum
ár með ǫllum tíri
ok frið hreinan.

Fárskerðir, hollr ýtum, býðr fyrðum at halda dýrliga friðkunnan sunnu dag of allan aldr. Mætr meinhrjóðandi kvezk gefa þjóðum í móti ár ok hreinan frið með ǫllum tíri.

The misfortune-diminisher [= God], gracious to men, commands men to observe ceremoniously the peace-known day of the sun thoughout all ages. The worthy harm-destroyer [= God] says he will give the peoples in return abundance and pure peace with all glory.
