Mark Eirdr 26II/6 — hann ‘he’

Lýst skal hitt, es læknask fýstisk
liðhraustr konungr sôr in iðri;
norðan fór með helming harðan
hersa mœðir sôl at grœða.
Harri bjósk til heims ins dýrra;
hann gerði fǫr út at kanna
— buðlungr vildi bjart líf ǫðlask —
byggð Jórsala friði tryggða.

Hitt skal lýst, es liðhraustr konungr fýstisk læknask in iðri sôr; mœðir hersa fór norðan með harðan helming at grœða sôl. Harri bjósk til ins dýrra heims; hann gerði fǫr út at kanna byggð Jórsala, tryggða friði; buðlungr vildi ǫðlask bjart líf.

It shall be made clear, that the troop-bold king was eager to cure his inner wounds; the troubler of hersar [RULER = Eiríkr] travelled from the north with a fierce unit to heal his soul. The lord prepared himself for the better world; he made his way out to explore the settlement of Jerusalem, secured with peace; the prince wished to gain a glorious life.
