Velr ítrhugaðr ýtum
otrgjǫld jǫfurr snotrum;
opt hefr þings fyr þrøngvi
þungfarmr Grana sprungit.
Hjǫrs vill rjóðr, at ríði
reiðmálmr Gnitaheiðar;
vígs es hreytt at hættis
hvatt Niflunga skatti.

Ítrhugaðr jǫfurr velr snotrum ýtum {otrgjǫld}; {þungfarmr Grana} hefr opt sprungit fyr {þrøngvi þings}. {Rjóðr hjǫrs} vill, at {reiðmálmr Gnitaheiðar} ríði; {skatti Niflunga} es hreytt hvatt at {hættis vígs}.

The splendid-minded prince selects {otter-payments} [GOLD] for wise people; {the heavy burden of Grani <horse>} [GOLD] has often burst before {the oppressor of the assembly} [STERN RULER]. {The reddener of the sword} [WARRIOR] wants {the riding-metal of Gnitaheiðr} [GOLD] to be scattered; {the treasure of the Niflungar <legendary family>} [GOLD] is distributed vigorously at [the dwelling] {of the darer of battle} [WARRIOR].
