Reiddi rǫngum studdan
ramn þjóðtraðar Glamma
flóð, áðr foldu næði
fjǫlkœnn Nói grœnni,
en, þás ǫrk á landi
ólesta vel festi,
þjóð af þram-Val prúðum
— þat vas dróttins dag — sótti*.

Flóð reiddi {rǫngum studdan ramn {þjóðtraðar Glamma}}, áðr fjǫlkœnn Nói næði grœnni foldu, en, þás ǫrk festi vel ólesta á landi, sótti* þjóð af {prúðum þram-Val}; þat vas dróttins dag.

A flood tossed {the rib-supported raven {of the highway of Glammi <sea-king>}} [SEA > SHIP], before very wise Noah could reach green land, and once the Ark was moored quite unbroken to the land, the people proceeded from {the magnificent rim-Valr <horse>} [SHIP]; that was on the Lord’s day.
