Þás sparn á mó Maurnis
morðkunnr Haraldr sunnan,
vas þá Vinða myrðir
vax eitt, í ham faxa;
en bergsalar Birgir
bǫndum rækr í landi
— þat sá ǫld — í jǫldu
óríkr fyrir líki.

Þás morðkunnr Haraldr sparn á {mó Maurnis} sunnan í ham faxa, vas {myrðir Vinða} þá vax eitt, en óríkr Birgir, rækr {bǫndum bergsalar} í landi, fyrir í líki jǫldu; ǫld sá þat.

When the battle-famed Haraldr kicked against {the heath of Maurnir} [?] from the south in the form of a stallion, {the killer of the Wends} [DANISH KING = Haraldr] was then nothing but wax; and the powerless Birgir, deserving to be driven out by {the deities of the rock-hall} [GIANTS] in the land, [was] in front in the shape of a mare; people saw that.
