Steinn Óldr 3II/2 — bjargask ‘could sustain itself’

Fellu vítt of vǫllu
— vargr náði þar bjargask
benja regn, en bragna
blóð víkingar óðu.

Regn benja fellu vítt of vǫllu, en víkingar óðu blóð bragna; vargr náði bjargask þar.

Rain-showers of wounds [BLOOD] fell far and wide on the fields, and vikings waded through warriors’ blood; the wolf could sustain itself there.


[2] bjargask: so all others, ‘biargiaz’ Mork
