Sigv Lv 30I/4 — batni ‘is improving’

Ástríði lát œðri,
Alfhildr, an þik sjalfa,
þér þótt þinn hagr stórum
— þat vildi goð — batni.

Alfhildr, lát Ástríði œðri an þik sjalfa, þótt hagr þinn batni þér stórum; goð vildi þat.

Álfhildr, set Ástríðr higher than yourself, though your position is improving for you greatly; God willed it.


[4] batni: batnat F
