Hildr stendr hverjan myrgin
hjaldrs und rauðum skildi;
nú hafa sigrmeyjar settan
sverðleik Dǫnum harðan.
Eiguð víga vægi
(vill Baldrs faðir illan
Óðinn harðr) sem allir
(óljósan val kjósa).

{Hildr hjaldrs} stendr hverjan myrgin und rauðum skildi; nú hafa {sigrmeyjar} settan Dǫnum {harðan sverðleik}. Eiguð víga vægi, sem allir; Óðinn, harðr faðir Baldrs, vill kjósa illan, óljósan val.

{The Hildr of battle} [VALKYRIE] stands every morning under a red shield; now {the victory-maidens} [VALKYRIES] have established {hard sword-play} [BATTLE] for the Danes. You have to fight with a sword, like everyone; Óðinn, the hard father of Baldr, wishes to choose the wretched, dark slain.
