Hauðr frák Hôkon síðan
harðgeðjaðastan varða;
þjóð sá ræsi rjóða
ráðvandaðastan branda.
Seimskerðir klauf sverði
snarpeggjuðustu leggi;
getk, at gramr fekk vitni
gráleituðustum sveita.

Frák harðgeðjaðastan Hôkon síðan varða hauðr; þjóð sá ráðvandaðastan ræsi rjóða branda. {Seimskerðir} klauf leggi snarpeggjuðustu sverði; getk, at gramr fekk gráleituðustum vitni sveita.

I heard that the very hardminded Hákon then guarded the land; people saw the very righteous ruler redden blades. {The gold-diminisher} [GENEROUS MAN] split legs with the very sharp-edged sword; I believe that the lord gave blood to the very grey-looking wolf.
