Bjbp Jóms 24I/7 — framm ‘forward’

Sigvaldi bað sína
sóknstranga vel ganga
— hann varat samr á sáttir
sveit Hákuni á móti.
Haralds arfi klauf hjálma
hildarǫrr ok skjǫldu;
framm gekk hann fyr hlífar
hart nakkvara snertu.

Sigvaldi bað sóknstranga sveit sína ganga vel á móti Hákuni; hann varat samr á sáttir. Hildarǫrr arfi Haralds klauf hjálma ok skjǫldu; hann gekk framm hart fyr hlífar nakkvara snertu.

Sigvaldi bade his attack-strong band advance strongly against Hákon; he was not willing for settlement. The battle-keen heir of Haraldr [= Sigvaldi] split helmets and shields; he pressed forward strongly before shields in a certain short attack.
