Eyv Hák 17I/5 — vel ‘good’

‘Gerðar órar,’         kvað inn góði konungr,
        ‘viljum vér sjalfir hafa;
hjalm ok brynju         skal hirða vel;
        gótt es til gǫrs at taka.’

‘Vér viljum sjalfir hafa gerðar órar,’ kvað inn góði konungr; ‘skal hirða vel hjalm ok brynju; gótt es at taka til gǫrs.’

‘We ourselves [I myself] wish to keep our [my] armour,’ said the good king; ‘one should take good care of one’s helmet and mail-shirt; it is good to have recourse to ready gear.’
