ESk Ingdr 2II/6 — mildr ‘generous’

Alls engi þarf Inga
arngrennir þat kenna,
— hverr spyri satt frá snerru
seggr — at gram bitu eggjar.
Bǫð gatat stillir stǫðvat
styrjarmildr, þótt vildi;
fús vas fjǫrspell vísa
fylkis sveit at veita.

Alls engi arngrennir þarf kenna Inga þat, at eggjar bitu gram; hverr seggr spyri satt frá snerru. Styrjarmildr stillir gatat stǫðvat bǫð, þótt vildi; sveit fylkis vas fús at veita vísa fjǫrspell.

Not one eagle-feeder [WARRIOR] needs to blame Ingi for the fact that sword-blades bit the prince; let each man hear the truth about the attack. The battle-generous lord was unable to stop the onslaught, although he may have wanted to; the ruler’s retinue was eager to inflict death upon the leader.
