Hskv Hardr 2II/4 — grund ‘the ground’

Harðéla, lézt, herðir
Haddings, á jó tradda
— glaðr tók gramr við hauðri —
grund til Eireks fundar.
Fekk, sás fremstr vas miklu,
fljótmæltr konungr Jóta
— réð Hollseta hræðir —
hraust gengi þér drengja.

Herðir harðéla Haddings, lézt grund tradda á jó til fundar Eireks; glaðr gramr tók við hauðri. Fljótmæltr konungr Jóta, sás vas miklu fremstr, fekk þér hraust gengi drengja; hræðir Hollseta réð.

Strengthener of the strong storms of Haddingr <legendary king> [BATTLE > WARRIOR], you traversed the ground on horseback to the meeting with Eiríkr; the cheerful ruler [= Magnús] received the land. The eloquent king of the Jótar [DANISH KING = Eiríkr], who was outstanding indeed, gave you a valiant following of warriors; the terrifier of the Holsteiners [= Eiríkr] ruled.
