Mætr rauð Magnús hneiti;
mildr fylkir vann hildi;
snjallr gerði styr stillir;
stóð ógn af gram þjóðar.
Dunðu dǫrr á brynju;
drótt hilmis rak flótta;
egg brast hǫrð í hǫggvi;
hjǫrr beit … gǫrva.

Mætr Magnús rauð hneiti; mildr fylkir vann hildi; snjallr stillir gerði styr; ógn stóð af {gram þjóðar}. Dǫrr dunðu á brynju; drótt hilmis rak flótta; hǫrð egg brast í hǫggvi; hjǫrr beit … gǫrva.

Splendid Magnús reddened the sword; the generous leader waged war; the clever prince caused battle; terror exuded from {the lord of the people} [RULER]. Spears resounded against the byrnie; the ruler’s retinue pursued those who fled; the hard edge burst as it struck; the sword bit … thoroughly.
