Heimil varð, es heyrðak,
hoddstríðir, þér síðan
grœn, en gull bautt hônum,
grund, es Magnús funduð.
Endisk ykkar frænda
allfriðliga á miðli
sætt, en síðan vætti
Sveinn rómǫldu einnar.

{Hoddstríðir}, grœn grund varð þér síðan heimil, es heyrðak, es funduð Magnús, en bautt hônum gull. Sætt endisk allfriðliga á miðli ykkar frænda, en síðan vætti Sveinn rómǫldu einnar.

{Hoard-enemy} [GENEROUS MAN], the green ground was later granted to you, as I heard, when you met Magnús and gave him gold. The accord was kept most peacefully between you two kinsmen, but from then on Sveinn could only expect war.
