Frændr af frúinnar grandi
fregna mannsins vegna;
fljóðið fult af stríði
fanga þeir með angri.
Kvöl var silki-Sólu
sett að dómi riettum;
brátt skal bálið heita
brenna líkama hennar.

Frændr mannsins vegna fregna af grandi frúinnar; með angri fanga þeir fljóðið, fult af stríði. Kvöl var sett {silki-Sólu} að riettum dómi; brátt skal bálið heita brenna líkama hennar.

The relatives of the slain man learn about the lady’s atrocity; with grief they capture the woman, filled with sorrow. Torment was stipulated {for the silk-Sól <goddess>} [WOMAN] according to correct judgement; soon the hot fire must burn her body.
