ESk Geisl 22VII/2 — dǫglings ‘prince’

Drótt þó dýran sveita
dǫglings ríks af líki
(vôn gleðr hug) með hreinu
(hans batnaðar) vatni.
Satts, at Sygna dróttin*
særendr guði kæran
hrings — megu heyra drengir
hans brǫgð — í grǫf lǫgðu.

Drótt þó dýran sveita af líki ríks dǫglings með hreinu vatni; vôn hans batnaðar gleðr hug. Satts, at særendr hrings lǫgðu dróttin* Sygna, kæran guði í grǫf; megu drengir heyra brǫgð hans.

The retainers washed precious blood from the body of the powerful prince with pure water; anticipation of his improvement gladdens the mind. It is true that the wounders of the ring [GENEROUS MEN] laid the lord of the Sygnir [= Óláfr], dear to God, in the grave; men can hear of his deeds.
