old west norse: ... H[a]llv[a]rðr Grenski reist rúnar þessar. Sæll er, sá er svíki, fýla, sorg á reikar torgi Grettis sótt at gæti, geldr eiðar þess aldri. Er-a feiknbrǫgðum flagða fallnir niðr með ǫllu haukar Baldrs, ok halda hugstríði byr[skíða]. 
original language: ... H[a]llv[a]rðr Grenski reist rúnar þessar. Sæll er, sá er svíki, fýla, sorg á reikar torgi Grettis sótt at gæti, geldr eiðar þess aldri. Er-a feiknbrǫgðum flagða fallnir niðr með ǫllu haukar Baldrs, ok halda hugstríði byr[skíða]. 
english: ... Hallvarðr the Greenlander carved these runes. Never is he fortunate, the brute who betrays: (he can) expect to get sorrow on the hair-part's turf (ie on his head); (he will) pay for this (broken) oath. The breeze-blown skis ( = ships) of Baldr's hawks ( = the warriors) (ie the sea-warriors) are not all felled through the baleful deeds of ogresses, and (they) hold the memory of battle.
