ESk Geisl 20VII/1 — Gerðusk ‘were wrought’

Gerðusk brátt, þás barðisk
broddrjóðr við kyn þjóðar,
— gramr vanðit sá synðum
sik — jartegnir miklar.
Ljós brann líki vísa
lǫgskíðs yfir síðan,
þás ǫnd með sér sendis
samdœgris guð framði.

Miklar jartegnir gerðusk brátt, þás broddrjóðr barðisk við kyn þjóðar; sá gramr vanðit sik synðum. Síðan brann ljós yfir líki vísa, þás guð framði ǫnd sendis lǫgskíðs með sér samdœgris.

Great miracles were wrought immediately, when the point-reddener [WARRIOR] had fought with the family of the people; that king did not accustom himself to sins. Then light burned over the body of the prince, when God raised the soul of the sender of the sea-ski [SHIP > SEAFARER] to himself on the same day.
