‘Beiðir, segðu ok brúði’,
byrskríns, ‘sonum þínum,
ǫll vilk yðr’, kvað stillir,
‘ormstalls, í trú kalla.
Hyrsløngvir, kom hingat
hvalranns, um dag annan;
þá munk yðr, þats *…
yfir þegjum nú — segja’.

‘{Beiðir {ormstalls}}, segðu sonum þínum ok brúði’, kvað {stillir {byrskríns}}, ‘vilk kalla yðr ǫll í trú. {{{Hvalranns} hyr}sløngvir}, kom hingat um annan dag; munk þá segja yðr, þats *…; yfir þegjum nú’.

‘{Demander {of the serpent-lair}} [GOLD > MAN], tell your sons and wife’, said {the ruler {of the wind-shrine}} [SKY/HEAVEN > = God], ‘I will call you all to the faith. {Flinger {of the fire {of the whale-house}}} [(lit. ‘fire-flinger of the whale-house’) SEA > GOLD > GENEROUS MAN], come here tomorrow; I will then tell you about that which ...; we are [I am] silent now about [it]’.
