Eyv Hál 1I/3 — meðan ‘while’

Viljak hljóð
at Hôars líði,
meðan Gillings
gjǫldum yppik,
meðan hans ætt
í hverlegi
galga farms
til goða teljum,
hinn es Surts
ór søkkdǫlum
farmǫgnuðr
fljúgandi bar.

Viljak hljóð at líði Hôars, meðan yppik gjǫldum Gillings, meðan teljum ætt hans til goða í hverlegi farms galga, hinn es farmǫgnuðr bar fljúgandi ór søkkdǫlum Surts.

I would wish for a hearing for the drink of Hôarr <= Óðinn> [POETRY], while I lift up the payment for Gillingr <giant> [POETRY], while we [I] reckon his lineage back to the gods in the cauldron-liquid [DRINK] of the burden of the gallows [= Óðinn > POETRY], that which the travel-furtherer [= Óðinn] carried flying from the treasure-valleys of Surtr [giant].
