Gísl Magnkv 6II/8 — ráða ‘hold’

Raufsk við róstu        — rymr varð í her —
helmingr Egils        við Hlaðir útan.
Môttut hersar        við Haða dróttni
láðgǫfguðum        landi ráða.

Helmingr Egils raufsk við róstu útan við Hlaðir; rymr varð í her. Hersar môttut ráða landi við láðgǫfguðum dróttni Haða.

Egill’s unit scattered in the tumult out by Lade; a roar resounded throughout the army. The hersar could not hold the country against the land-endowed lord of the Haðar [NORWEGIAN KING = Magnús].
