Anon Sól 74VII/3 — eigu ‘have’

Hávar reiðir        sá ek með himnum fara;
        þær eigu götur til guðs;
menn þeim stýra,        er myrðir eru
        alls fyrir öngvar sakir.

Ek sá hávar reiðir fara með himnum; þær eigu götur til guðs; menn stýra þeim, er eru myrðir fyrir alls öngvar sakir.

I saw tall wagons journeying along the heavens; they have paths to God; men drive them who are murdered for no cause [lit. causes] at all.
