ESk Geisl 40VII/6 — sterks ‘strong’

Veitk, at Vinðr fyr skauti
(verðr bragr af því) skerði
gjalfrs Niðbranda grundar
(greiddr) sárliga meiddu,
ok endr frá trú týndir
tírar sterks ór kverkum
auðskýfanda óðar
ôr grimmliga skôru.

Veitk, at Vinðr meiddu skerði Niðbranda sárliga fyr skauti grundar gjalfrs; bragr verðr greiddr af því; ok týndir endr frá trú skôru grimmliga ôr óðar ór kverkum auðskýfanda, tírar sterks.

I know that the Wends mutilated the diminisher of Nið <river>-flames [GOLD > GENEROUS MAN] painfully by the edge of the land of ocean-din [SEA]; poetry is made from that; and [men] lost long ago from the faith cut horribly the oar of poetry [TONGUE] from the throat of the distributor of riches [GENEROUS MAN], strong in honour.
