Deceit-shy king of Lista [NORWEGIAN KING = Sigurðr munnr Haraldsson], now it shall be described how you avenged your father; the fulfilment of the lord’s words of courage took place. Mighty ruler, you caused Sigurðr to fall; that storm of the helmet [BATTLE] near the island was heard of far and wide; the oppressor of princes [= Sigurðr slembidjákn] died.
[1, 4] hvé hefndir fǫður þíns ‘how you avenged your father’: Haraldr gilli, Sigurðr’s father, was murdered by Sigurðr slembidjákn and his men on 13 December 1136.
