Sigv Berv 3II/6 — stóðk ‘I stood’

Fylgðak þeim, es fylgju,
fémildum gram, vildi,
— nú eru þegnar frið fegnir —
feðr þínum vel, mína.
Vasat á her, með hjǫrvi,
hlið, þars stóðk í miðjum
hrœsinn (skal með hrísi)
hans flokki (við þjokkva).

Fylgðak feðr þínum vel, þeim fémildum gram, es vildi fylgju mína; nú eru þegnar fegnir frið. Vasat hlið á her, þars stóðk hrœsinn í miðjum flokki hans með hjǫrvi; skal þjokkva við með hrísi.

I followed your father well, that generous lord, who wanted my company; now people are pleased with the peace. There was no gap in the ranks where I stood proudly in the midst of his men with my sword; one must make the forest denser with brush.
