Hilmir rauð ok hjalma
hjalmskóð í dyn malma;
skjǫldungr komat skildi
skjaldfimr í bug sjaldan.
Bǫrr lét vígs at vígi
vígreyr lituð dreyra,
þvít gunnþorinn gunni
gunn-Freyr hvata kunni.

Hilmir rauð {hjalmskóð} ok hjalma í {dyn malma}; skjaldfimr skjǫldungr komat sjaldan í bug skildi. {Bǫrr vígs} lét {vígreyr} lituð dreyra at vígi, þvít {gunnþorinn gunn-Freyr} kunni hvata gunni.

The ruler reddened {helmet-harmers} [SWORDS] and helmets in {the din of swords} [BATTLE]; the shield-deft lord did not seldom advance in the hollow of the shield. {The tree of slaughter} [WARRIOR] let {slaughter-reeds} [WEAPONS] be coloured with blood at the slaughter, because {the battle-daring battle-Freyr <god>} [WARRIOR] knew how to hasten battle.
