Ív Sig 16II/6 — stýrði ‘was steering’

Skók veðrvita        í vôtum byr
gulli glæstan        of grams skipi.
Kløkkar urðu,        en konungr stýrði,
snekkju sneisar        of Sigurði.

Veðrvita skók í vôtum byr, glæstan gulli, of skipi grams. Sneisar snekkju urðu kløkkar of Sigurði, en konungr stýrði.

The weather-vane shook in the wet wind, adorned with gold, above the lord’s ship. The thin planks of the warship became pliable around Sigurðr, and the king was steering.
