Ólhelg Lv 6I/2 —  ‘the corpse’

Lítt mun herr enn hætta
— hrafn sleit af beitu —
— vér unnum gný Gunnar —
glaðr í nótt á Jaðri.
Umstilli hefr illa
(ættgóðr) of rof sætta
(Erlingr beið til árla
andrán) getit hônum.

Lítt mun herr enn hætta, glaðr í nótt á Jaðri; hrafn sleit beitu af ; vér unnum gný Gunnar. Umstilli of rof sætta hefr getit hônum illa; ættgóðr Erlingr beið andrán til árla.

Little will the army again take respite, glad tonight in Jæren; the raven tore its meal from the corpse; we made the clamour of Gunnr <valkyrie> [BATTLE]. The machinations over the breach of settlements have brought him a bad outcome; Erlingr, of good kindred, was robbed of life too soon.
