Blakkr Lv 1II/5 — fjanda ‘of enemies to flight’

Reisum vé fyr vísa!
Verum þungir Kuflungum!
Lǫtum brýndan hjǫr bíta!
Bolum tafn und kló hrafni!
Hnekkjum fjanda flokki!
Friðum land jǫfurs brandi!
Rjóðum dǫrr í dreyra!
Drepum meira hlut þeira!

Reisum vé fyr vísa! Verum þungir Kuflungum! Lǫtum brýndan hjǫr bíta! Bolum tafn und kló hrafni! Hnekkjum flokki fjanda! Friðum land jǫfurs brandi! Rjóðum dǫrr í dreyra! Drepum meira hlut þeira!

Let’s raise banners before the leader! Let’s be hostile to the Kuflungar! Let’s make the sharpened sword bite! Let’s chop carrion beneath the claw of the raven! Let’s put the flock of enemies to flight! Let’s pacify the prince’s land with the sword! Let’s redden spears in gore! Let’s kill the greater part of them!
