Hl*ǫðr réð hann at kveðja
hauðrs benloga rauðum,
þvít margkostigr mesta
mildingr of vann hildi,
ef hann vildi, en ek veit, at hann vildi.
Trauðr vas lundr af lǫndum
linns fyr þeim at sinna
— svipr varð at þat sverða —
sára polls ok golli,
ef þat olli, sem ek veit, at þat olli.

Hl*ǫðr réð at kveðja hann hauðrs {rauðum benloga}, þvít margkostigr mildingr of vann mesta hildi, ef hann vildi, en ek veit, at hann vildi. {Lundr {linns {polls sára}}} vas trauðr at sinna af lǫndum ok golli fyr þeim – {svipr sverða} varð at þat –, ef þat olli, sem ek veit, at þat olli.

Hlǫðr went to claim the land from him [Angatýr] {with the red wound-flame} [SWORD], because the very splendid generous one waged the greatest war if he wanted, and I know that he wanted. {The tree {of the serpent {of the pool of wounds}}} [BLOOD > SWORD > WARRIOR = Angantýr] was reluctant to leave his lands and gold because of that one [Hlǫðr] – there was {a motion of swords} [BATTLE] because of that –, if that was the reason, as I know that was the reason.
