Mark Eirdr 12II/1 — ráði ‘shall achieve’

Eyðisk hitt, at jafnstórt ráði
annarr gramr til þyrftar mǫnnum;
leyfði allt, sem konungr krafði,
Krists unnanda páfi sunnan.

Hitt eyðisk, at annarr gramr ráði jafnstórt til þyrftar mǫnnum; páfi sunnan leyfði unnanda Krists allt, sem konungr krafði.

It will not happen that another prince shall achieve so much for the need of men; the Pope from the south granted the devotee of Christ [= Eiríkr] all that the king requested.
