Mark Eirdr 2II/4 — jǫfra ‘of princes’

Eireks lof verðr ǫld at heyra;
engi maðr veit fremra þengil
— yngvi helt við orðstír langan
jǫfra sess — í verǫld þessi.

Ǫld verðr at heyra lof Eireks; engi maðr veit fremra þengil í þessi verǫld; yngvi helt sess jǫfra við langan orðstír.

People must hear Eiríkr’s praise; no man knows a better ruler in this world; the king held the seat of princes with long-lasting glory.


[4] jǫfra: ‘ofra’ C
