Hfr ErfÓl 8I/2 — hlífa ‘of shields’

Upp sǫgðu lǫg — lagðisk
líf skjótt firum — hlífa
gnóg til gumna feigðar
gǫlkn við randar bǫlku.

Gǫlkn hlífa sǫgðu upp lǫg, gnóg til feigðar gumna, við bǫlku randar; líf lagðisk skjótt firum.

Monsters of shields [AXES] proclaimed the laws, enough for the doom of warriors, at the walls of the rim [SHIELDS]; life was quickly laid aside for men.
