Þjóð Yt 24I/4 — ór ‘out’

Ok til þings
þriðja jǫfri
Hveðrungs mær
ór heimi bauð,
þás Halfdanr,
sás Holtum bjó,
norna dóms
of notit hafði.
Ok buðlung
á Borrói
síðan fôlu.

Ok mær Hveðrungs bauð þriðja jǫfri ór heimi til þings, þás Halfdanr, sás bjó Holtum, hafði of notit dóms norna. Ok sigrhafendr fôlu buðlung síðan á Borrói.

And the maiden of Hveðrungr <= Loki> [= Hel] invited a third ruler out of the world to a meeting when Hálfdan, who lived in Holtan, had used up the allotment of the norns. And afterwards the victorious ones buried the ruler in Borre.
