Bkrepp Magndr 7II/3 — ræsir ‘the ruler’

Ǫrr skjǫldungr fór eldi
Ívist; búendr misstu
— róggeisla vann ræsir
rauðan — lífs ok auðar.

Ǫrr skjǫldungr fór Ívist eldi; búendr misstu lífs ok auðar; ræsir vann róggeisla rauðan.

The generous leader advanced in North Uist with fire; farmers lost life and wealth; the ruler reddened the battle-beam [SWORD].
