Brimglóða fór bæði
brík og maðrinn ríki
í musterið mesta;
mannfjöldi kom hölda.
Brúðr af treganum tjáði
tilkall við hal snjallan;
þrætir þegar á móti
þegn af öllu megni.

 

Both {the plank {of ocean-embers}} [GOLD > WOMAN] and the powerful man went into the very great church; a large crowd of men came. The woman brought charges against the clever fellow sorrowfully [lit. with sorrow]; the man immediately contests them with all his might.
