Sonr Tryggva bað seggi
síðan ógnarblíða
vallar baug á vági
verja* sœnskum herjum.
Hjaltvendi skar Hrundar
hríðar tungla stríðir
— alms varð hagl á hjalma
hrynja — danskar brynjur.

{Sonr Tryggva} bað síðan ógnarblíða seggi verja* {baug vallar} sœnskum herjum á vági. {Stríðir {tungla {hríðar Hrundar}}} skar danskar brynjur {hjaltvendi}; {hagl alms} varð hrynja á hjalma.

{The son of Tryggvi} [= Óláfr] then commanded the battle-cheerful men to defend {the ring of the meadow} [SERPENT = Ormr inn langi] against Swedish warriors in the bay. {The opponent {of the moons {of the storm of Hrund <valkyrie>}}} [BATTLE > SHIELDS > WARRIOR] cut Danish byrnies {with the hilt-rod} [SWORD]; {hail of the elm-bow} [ARROWS] crashed against helmets.
