Kœnn hlaut lofðungr linna
láð; segik vísa dáðir;
gramr prýddi sá gumna
gjǫfum; kunni sið jǫfra.
Ógnbeiðis naut auðar
ǫld; leyfum bǫr skjaldar,
þvít ljósan veg vísi
vann; nús mælt it sanna.

Kœnn lofðungr hlaut {láð linna}; segik dáðir vísa; sá gramr prýddi gumna gjǫfum; kunni sið jǫfra. Ǫld naut auðar {ógnbeiðis}; leyfum {bǫr skjaldar}, þvít vísi vann ljósan veg; nús it sanna mælt.

The clever lord obtained {the land of serpents} [GOLD]; I recount the ruler’s deeds; that monarch adorned men with gifts; he knew the custom of princes. People enjoyed the wealth {of the war-craver} [WARRIOR]; we [I] praise {the tree of the shield} [WARRIOR] because the ruler gained glowing glory; now the truth has been told.
