Bkrepp Magndr 3II/7 — svôru ‘of the troll-woman’

Hrafngreddir vann hrædda
hlífar styggr í byggðum
þrœnzka drótt, es þótti
þeim markar bǫl sveima.
Hygg, at hersa tveggja
her-Baldr lyki aldri
sinn; jór vasa svôru
svangr; fló ǫrn til hanga.

Hrafngreddir, styggr hlífar, vann hrædda þrœnzka drótt í byggðum, es þeim þótti bǫl markar sveima. Hygg, at her-Baldr lyki sinn aldri tveggja hersa; jór svôru vasa svangr; ǫrn fló til hanga.

The raven-feeder [WARRIOR], shy of protection, frightened the host from Trøndelag in the settlements, when it seemed to them that the harm of the forest [FIRE] was raging. I believe that the army-Baldr <god> [WARRIOR] ended simultaneously the lives of two hersar; the horse of the troll-woman [WOLF] was not hungry; the eagle flew to the hanged ones.
