Sveinn framði gný grimman
— guðr heitir svá — peitu;
hagl brast skóðs á Skǫglar
— skjǫld nefnik svá — tjaldi.
Sóknbjartar skar snyrtir
— sverð nefnik svá — ferðir;
hringr brá horskra drengja
— hjǫr nefnik svá — fjǫrvi.

Sveinn framði {grimman gný peitu}; guðr heitir svá; {hagl skóðs} brast á {tjaldi Skǫglar}; svá nefnik skjǫld. Snyrtir – svá nefnik sverð – skar sóknbjartar ferðir; hringr – svá nefnik hjǫr – brá fjǫrvi horskra drengja.

Sveinn performed {a grim clamour of the spear} [BATTLE]; battle is called thus; {hail of the weapon} [ARROWS] crashed against {the tent of Skǫgul <valkyrie>} [SHIELD]; thus I name the shield. The polished one – thus I name the sword – cut battle-cheerful companies; the ringed one – thus I name the sword – ended the life of wise warriors.
