Sigv Óldr 1I/4 — miðli ‘among’

Loptbyggvir, mátt leggja
lands rétt, þanns skal standask,
unnar, allra manna,
eykja, liðs á miðli.

Loptbyggvir eykja unnar, mátt leggja rétt lands, þanns skal standask á miðli liðs allra manna.

Inhabitant of the loft of the draught-animals of the wave [(lit. ‘loft-inhabitant of the draught-animals of the wave’) SHIPS > AFTER-DECK > SEAFARER], you are able to establish the law of the land which shall remain in force among the troop of all men.


[4] á miðli ‘among’: See Note to Sigv Víkv 4/6.
