Svall, þás gekk með gjallan
Gauts eld, hinns styr belldi,
glaðfœðandi Gríðar,
gunnr; komsk Urðr at brunni.

Gunnr svall, þás {{Gríðar glað}fœðandi}, hinns belldi styr, gekk með {gjallan eld Gauts}; Urðr komsk at brunni.

The battle intensified, as {the feeder {of the horse of Gríðr <giantess>}} [(lit. ‘horse-feeder of Gríðr’) WOLF > WARRIOR], who promoted fighting, advanced with {the resounding fire of Gautr <= Óðinn>} [SWORD]; Urðr went to the well.
