Lôgu fallnir         í fen ofan
Valþjófs liðar         vôpnum hǫggnir,
svát gunnhvatir         ganga môttu
Norðmenn yfir         at nôum einum.

Liðar Valþjófs lôgu fallnir ofan í fen hǫggnir vôpnum, svát gunnhvatir Norðmenn môttu ganga yfir at nôum einum.

The forces of Waltheof lay fallen down in the marsh, hacked by weapons, so that the battle-bold Norwegians could walk across on corpses alone.
