Þjóð veit, at Haraldr hefr háðar átján hvargrimmligar rimmur; sáttir hafa opt rofizk fyr jǫfri. Rautt hvassar klœr hǫss arnar blóði, hróðigr konungr, áðr fœrir hingat; ímr gat krôs, hvars kómuð.
People know that Haraldr has fought eighteen most ferocious battles; peace has [lit. treaties have] often been slashed at the hands of the ruler. You reddened the sharp claws of the grey eagle with blood, triumphant king, before you travelled here [to Norway]; the dark wolf got a morsel wherever you went.
 krôs ‘a morsel’: Unusually, Hr is alone in having what seems to be the correct reading, and one wonders whether the other mss could contain a genuine, metathesised variant. The noun is f. and most often found in pl. krásir.
