frá þvís friðgin, nýja,
fjǫgur endr, síz trú kenndu,
ráð ór Rúmsborg víðri
… mœðila flœðu.
Ok bjartglóða beiðir
bragðvíss gripinn sagðisk
frár af frœknu dýri
flóðs, en vargr tók bróður.

frá þvís fjǫgur friðgin endr mœðila flœðu … ráð ór víðri Rúmsborg, síz kenndu nýja trú. Ok {bragðvíss frár beiðir {bjartglóða flóðs}} sagðisk gripinn af frœknu dýri, en vargr tók bróður.

about how the four, parents [and children], once fled with difficulty from their … circumstances from the great city of Rome, after they embraced the new faith. And {the plucky, agile demander {of the bright embers of the flood}} [GOLD > MAN] described himself being taken by a fierce beast, and [how] a wolf took his brother.
