Anon Nkt 42II/5 — Réð ‘ruled’

En Óláfr
átti inn kyrri
frœknan son
ok fjárgóðan.
Réð Magnús
fyr mani Yggjar
tíu vetr
at tali fyrða.

En Óláfr inn kyrri átti frœknan ok fjárgóðan son. Magnús réð fyr mani Yggjar tíu vetr at tali fyrða.

But Óláfr inn kyrri (‘the Quiet’) had a bold and generous son. Magnús ruled Yggr’s <= Óðinn’s> girl [= Jǫrð (jǫrð ‘earth’)] for ten years according to people’s reckoning.
