Anon Brúðv 29VII/5 — drótt ‘people’

Traust verðr mær mest
mönnum og líkn sönn,
og ið hæsta hald víst,
hverjum sem þörf er.
Ætti þier öll drótt
unna fyrir miskunn;
þínar hafa þess raun
þjóðir; ertu firum góð.

Mær verðr mönnum mest traust og sönn líkn og víst ið hæsta hald, hverjum sem er þörf. Öll drótt ætti unna þier fyrir miskunn; þínar þjóðir hafa þess raun; ertu góð firum.

The maiden will be to men the greatest protection and true comfort and certainly the noblest support, for whoever has a need. All people should love you for your mercy; your peoples have experience of it; you are kind to men.
