Rekit vas Rǫgnvalds dauða,
þás randviðir brendu,
— þurru hús fyr harra —
harða, austan fjarðar.
Vasa tál, at skaut Skúli
skjalþrungnum Foldungum
— eldr lék hús fyr hauldum —
hingat skelk í bringu.

Dauða Rǫgnvalds vas rekit harða, þás {randviðir} brendu austan fjarðar; hús þurru fyr harra. Vasa tál, at Skúli skaut skelk í bringu skjalþrungnum Foldungum hingat; eldr lék hús fyr hauldum.

Rǫgnvaldr’s death was avenged severely when {shield-rim trees} [WARRIORS] set fires east of the fjord; houses crumbled because of the lord. It was no lie that Skúli inspired fear in the hearts of the garrulous Foldungar here; fire destroyed houses for the freeholders.
