Bǫlv Hardr 3II/1 — styr ‘battle’

Snjallr rauð í styr stillir
stôl ok gekk á mála;
háðisk hvert ár síðan
hildr, sem sjalfir vilduð.

Snjallr stillir rauð stôl í styr ok gekk á mála; hildr háðisk hvert ár síðan, sem sjalfir vilduð.

The valiant ruler reddened swords in battle and entered paid service; war was waged every year thereafter, as you yourself wanted.


[1] styr: ‘stor’ Flat
