Hlakkar gjörðiz hugþekkr
herðir (sem gietið verðr)
snotr fyrir sinn hátt
(síðar í bragsmíð),
því dýrum dólg-Freyr
dáðum prýddi sitt ráð,
en lasta, vel víst,
vansa firðiz líf hans.

 

{The wise promoter of battle} [WARRIOR] became endeared for his conduct, as will be mentioned later in the poem, because {the battle-Freyr} [WARRIOR] certainly adorned well his way of life with noble deeds, and his life was kept from the disgrace of vices.

notes: [7-8]: It is possible to read ll. 7-8 as a separate couplet: en víst firðiz líf hans vel vansa lasta ‘but for certain, his life was kept well from the disgrace of vices’.
