Anon Heil 22VII/5 — Lýðir ‘people’

Hallvarð píndu ýtar illir
austr í Vík á litlu flaustri;
fljóði vildi forða dauða
frægðarmaðr, er vándir rægðu.
Lýðir ofan af landi síðan
ljótir þegar af boganum skjóta;
þilju brá hann við þeiri pílu;
þegninn flýgur örin í gegnum.

Illir ýtar píndu Hallvarð austr í Vík á litlu flaustri; frægðarmaðr vildi forða fljóði dauða, er vándir rægðu. Síðan skjóta ljótir lýðir þegar af boganum ofan af landi; hann brá þilju við þeiri pílu; örin flýgur í gegnum þegninn.

Wicked men tormented Hallvarðr east in Viken on a little ship; the famous man wanted to save a woman, whom evil people maligned, from death. Then wicked people immediately shoot with a bow down from the land; he held the thwart against that arrow; the arrow flies through the man.
