Eggjendr baðat ugga
óhlífinn gramr lífi,
hvégis lét inn ljóti
landgarðr fyrir barði.
Satt vas, at allvaldr átti
ógnsnart borit hjarta;
súð varð í gný grœðis
geyst farsælu treystask.

Óhlífinn gramr baðat eggjendr ugga lífi, hvégis {inn ljóti landgarðr} lét fyrir barði. Vas satt, at allvaldr átti borit ógnsnart hjarta; geyst súð varð treystask farsælu í gný grœðis.

The unsparing lord did not tell the warriors to fear for their life, no matter how {the hideous land-enclosure} [SEA] howled before the bow. It was true that the mighty ruler was born with a battle-keen heart; the swift-moving ship had to trust its luck in the din of the sea.
