Hjuggu vér með hjörvi.
Hátt grenjuðu rottar,
áðr en á Ullarakri
Eysteinn konungr felli.
Gengum gulli fáðir
grundar vals af bröndum
— rækyndill smaug rauðar
rítr — at hjálma móti.
Svíra virtr ór sárum
sveif of hjarna kleifar.

Hjuggu vér með hjörvi. Rottar grenjuðu hátt, áðr en Eysteinn konungr felli á Ullarakri. Gengum, fáðir gulli af {bröndum {grundar vals}}, at {móti hjálma}; {rækyndill} smaug rauðar rítr. {Virtr svíra} sveif ór sárum of {kleifar hjarna}.

We hewed with the sword. Swords roared loudly before King Eysteinn fell at Ullarakr. We proceeded to {a meeting of helmets} [BATTLE], decked with gold from {the flames {of the landing place of the falcon}} [ARM > GOLD RINGS]; {the corpse-candle} [SWORD] penetrated red shields. {The wort of the neck} [BLOOD] flowed from wounds over {the cliffs of the brain} [SHOULDERS].
