Giekk hjörviður Hlakkar
hríðar djarfr með karfa
...
...
hendi alt hjöltum
handsax og benlaxa
— öld lofar öðling mildan
oft — en þrjú * á lofti.

{Hjörviður}, djarfr {hríðar Hlakkar}, giekk með karfa ... hendi alt hjöltum, handsax og {benlaxa}, en þrjú * á lofti; öld lofar oft mildan öðling.

{The sword-tree} [WARRIOR], valiant {in the storm of Hlǫkk <valkyrie>} [BATTLE], went along the ship ... caught everything by the hilt, short-sword and {wound-salmon} [SWORDS], though three [were] aloft; people often praise the generous prince.
