Algildan biðk aldar
allvald of mér halda
ýs bifvangi Yngva
ungr; fór með Hroptr Gungni.

Biðk ungr {algildan allvald aldar Yngva} halda of mér {bifvangi ýs}; Hroptr fór með Gungni.

Being a young man I ask {the excellent mighty ruler of the people of Yngvi <legendary king>} [YNGLING = Haraldr gráfeldr?] to hold {his quivering field of the bow} [HAND] over me; Hroptr <= Óðinn> advanced with Gungnir <spear>.
