Einráðit lét áðan
Ullkell, þars spjǫr gullu,
— hǫrð óx hildar garða
hríð — víkinga at bíða.
Ok, slíðrhugaðr, síðan
sátt á oss, hvé mátti
byggs við bitran skeggja
brunns; tveir hugir runnu.

Ullkell lét áðan einráðit at bíða víkinga, þars spjǫr gullu; {hǫrð hríð {garða hildar}} óx. Ok, slíðrhugaðr, sátt á oss síðan, hvé mátti við {bitran skeggja {byggs brunns}}; tveir hugir runnu.

Ullkell had beforehand resolved to await the vikings where spears screamed; {a hard storm {of enclosures of war}} [SHIELDS > BATTLE] swelled. And, ruthless-minded one, you saw on us afterwards how one [we] could prevail against {the fierce denizen {of the barley of the spring}} [STONE > ?= Ullkell]; two minds were competing.
