Eyv Hál 4I/3 — við ‘because of’

En Goðlaugr
grimman tamði
við ofrkapp
austrkonunga
Sigars jó,
es synir Yngva
menglǫtuð
við meið riðu.

En Goðlaugr tamði grimman jó Sigars við ofrkapp austrkonunga, es synir Yngva riðu menglǫtuð við meið.

But Guðlaugr tamed the savage horse of Sigarr <legendary king> [GALLOWS], because of the belligerence of the eastern kings, when the sons of Yngvi fastened the ring-destroyer [GENEROUS MAN] to the tree.
