Skôru jast ór osti
eybaugs Dana meyjar
— þat of angraði þengil
þing — akkerishringa.
Nú sér mǫrg í morgun
mær — hlær at því færi —
ernan krók ór jarni
allvalds skipum halda.

Meyjar Dana {eybaugs} skôru akkerishringa ór jastosti; þat þing of angraði þengil. Nú í morgun sér mǫrg mær ernan krók ór jarni halda skipum allvalds; færi hlær at því.

The girls of the Danes {of the island-ring} [SEA] carved anchor-rings from yeast-cheese; that object angered the lord. Now this morning many a maiden sees a powerful hook of iron holding the mighty ruler’s ships; fewer laugh at that.
