Styrbjǫrn réð til styrjar
styrfimr meginsnimma;
hildingr gekk at hjaldri
hildarfúss und skildi.
Eggþinga skar eggjum
eggjandi fjǫr seggja;
vargfœðir rauð vargi
varghollr granar mǫrgum.

Styrfimr Styrbjǫrn réð meginsnimma til styrjar; hildingr gekk hildarfúss und skildi at hjaldri. {Eggjandi {eggþinga}} skar fjǫr seggja eggjum; {varghollr vargfœðir} rauð granar mǫrgum vargi.

Battle-swift Styrbjǫrn engaged in battle extremely early; the warrior went war-eager beneath the shield to war. {The egger-on {of edge-assemblies}} [BATTLES > WARRIOR] severed men’s lives with edges; {the wolf-devoted wolf-feeder} [WARRIOR] reddened the whiskers of many a wolf.
