Síðan náði sverðrjóðr
— sveinninn girntiz vera einn —
— skildiz hann við fira fjöld —
fara, þar er auðn var.
Hæstri unni höll Krists
helga sig lagar elgs
hei…, unz önd liet;
endar þar manns sögu kendr.

{Sverðrjóðr} náði síðan fara, þar er var auðn, hann skildiz við fjöld fira; sveinninn girntiz vera einn. {Hei… {elgs lagar}} kendr {hæstri höll Krists}, unni helga sig, unz önd liet; þar endar manns sögu.

Afterwards {the sword-reddener} [WARRIOR] managed to go where there was wilderness; he parted from the multitude of men; the youth wanted to be alone. {The … {of the elk of the sea}} [SHIP > SEAFARER], belonging {to the highest hall of Christ} [= Mary], loved to make himself holy, until he gave up life; there the man’s story ends.
