Ef væri Bil báru
brunnins logs, sús unnum
— opt gerik orðaskipti
einrœnliga — á bœnum.

Ef {Bil {brunnins logs báru}}, sús unnum, væri á bœnum; opt gerik orðaskipti einrœnliga.

If {the Bil <goddess> of {the burnt fire of the wave}} [GOLD > WOMAN], the one whom we [I] love, were at the farm; I often make conversation in a singular manner.
