Hafit maðr ask né eskis
afspring með sér þingat
fésæranda at fœra
fats; véltu goð Þjaza.
Hverr myni vés við valdi,
vægja kind, of bægjask,
þvít fúr-Rǫgnir fagnar
fens; vá Gramr til menja.

Maðr hafit með sér ask né {afspring fats eskis} þingat at fœra {fésæranda}; goð véltu Þjaza. Hverr myni of bægjask við {valdi vés}, þvít {{fens fúr}-Rǫgnir} fagnar {kind vægja}; Gramr vá til menja.

A man will not have to bring either a bowl or {the offspring of the ash vat} [BOWL] with him to a meeting with {the wealth-wounder} [GENEROUS MAN]; the gods deceived Þjazi. Who would fight against {the owner of the sanctuary} [RULER], since {the Rǫgnir <= Óðinn> {of the fire of the fen}} [(lit. ‘fire-Rǫgnir of the fen’) GOLD > GENEROUS RULER] rejoices {in the descendant of swords} [SWORD]; Gramr <legendary sword> fought for neck-rings.
