Siklingr lét þar sveita
— sveit fylkis rauð hneiti —
bǫðvar skýrstr í bráði
bráðmôl lituð stála.
Vann blóðroðin benja
benflœðr skolat rœði;
sóknbôru* gat sára
sárvǫrðr þvegit árar.

Þar lét siklingr, skýrstr bǫðvar, bráðmôl stála lituð sveita í bráði; sveit fylkis rauð hneiti. {Benflœðr} vann skolat {blóðroðin rœði benja}; {sárvǫrðr} gat þvegit {árar sára} {sóknbôru*}.

There the lord, wisest in war, let welded patterns of swords be coloured with gore in haste; the company of the leader reddened the sword. {The wound-flood} [BLOOD] rinsed {the blood-reddened paddle of wounds} [SWORD]; {the wound-guardian} [WARRIOR] washed {oars of wounds} [SWORDS] {with the battle-wave} [BLOOD].
