Gísl Magnkv 13II/5 — af ‘from’

Bǫðkennir skaut        bôðum hǫndum;
allr vá hilmis        herr prúðliga.
Stukku af almi,        þeims jǫfurr sveigði,
hvítmýlingar,        áðr Hugi felli.

Bǫðkennir skaut bôðum hǫndum; allr herr hilmis vá prúðliga. Hvítmýlingar stukku af almi, þeims jǫfurr sveigði, áðr Hugi felli.

The battle-teacher [WARRIOR] shot with both hands; all the lord’s army fought splendidly. White-muzzled arrows flew from the elm-bow which the king bent, before Hugh fell.
