Frilleifs vann ek sagt frá snilli;
siklingr vakði gunni mikla;
rjóða kunni randar váða
rómu valdr í benja ǫldu.
Bíta knátti brynju ótti
— brandar skôru svartar randir —
(Gera spurðik þar gladdan verða)
gunnar sól (með ylgjar brunni).

Ek vann sagt frá snilli Frilleifs; siklingr vakði mikla gunni; {valdr rómu} kunni rjóða {váða randar} í {ǫldu benja}. {Ótti brynju} knátti bíta {sól gunnar}; brandar skôru svartar randir; spurðik Gera verða gladdan þar með {brunni ylgjar}.

I was able to tell about the prowess of Friðleifr; the hero stirred up a great battle; {the ruler of strife} [WARRIOR] knew how to redden {the danger of the shield-rim} [SWORD] in {the wave of wounds} [BLOOD]. {The terror of the byrnie} [SWORD] bit {the sun of battle} [SHIELD]; blades cut black shield-rims; I heard that Geri <wolf> was gladdened there with {the spring of the she-wolf} [BLOOD].
