Hskv Útdr 12II/2 — él ‘of the storm’

Orkið, Ála serkjar
élfestir, þrek mestum;
ætt berr grams of grimma
gagnprúðr Sigurðr magni.

Orkið, Ála serkjar élfestir, mestum þrek; gagnprúðr Sigurðr berr magni of grimma ætt grams.

You perform, strengthener of the storm of Áli’s <sea-king’s> shirt [(lit. ‘storm-strengthener of Áli’s shirt’) BYRNIE > BATTLE > WARRIOR], the greatest deed of courage; victory-splendid Sigurðr overwhelms the fierce family of the ruler.
