Magnús * malma regni
morðbráðan frák ráða;
hyrbrjótr hauka strætis
hjǫrskúrir vann gǫrvar.
Allnýtr Egða gætir
ósjaldan rauð skjaldar
sval*fúr seggja dreyra;
sveiti* dreif á hneiti*.

Frák morðbráðan Magnús ráða * {regni malma}; {{{hauka strætis} hyr}brjótr} vann gǫrvar {hjǫrskúrir}. {Allnýtr gætir Egða} rauð ósjaldan {sval*fúr skjaldar} dreyra seggja; sveiti* dreif á hneiti*.

I heard that battle-quick Magnús caused {a rain of weapons} [BATTLE]; {the breaker {of the fire {of the hawks’ street}}} [(lit. ‘hawks’ street’s fire-breaker’) ARM > GOLD > GENEROUS MAN] made {sword-showers} [BATTLES]. {The thoroughly beneficial guardian of the Egðir} [NORWEGIAN KING = Magnús] not seldom reddened {the cool fire of the shield} [SWORD] with the gore of men; blood splattered on the sword.
